Get Lazy On Facebook

Lazies, Did you know I’m hanging out at Facebook? There is a lot of quilty stuff, and tons of quilty people hanging out with each other there.

I know, you are thinking ‘I don’t need another online social network to suck my day away’. I hear ya. But, it’s fun and I like seeing what everyone is up to. I’m hooked. And I’d love you to consider joining me there.

Computer rendering.

An example of why I like Facebook
Just this weekend, creative gal Yolanda Fundora (author, quilter, fabric designer, cool chick) gave us a sneak preview of her upcoming fabric line for Blank Quilting which will be introduced this fall. How cool is that?

Above is a computer generated rendering showing Yolanda’s ‘Garden Party’ fabrics on the Lazy Girl Designs Newport Tote and Gracie Handbag. Pretty cool. Love that limey green!

How To
Go here to join facebook:
You can join 1,400+ Lazies in the Facebook Lazy Girl group and share pictures of your creations.
Join the company page for Lazy Girl here.
Then hop over to this helpful page: Facebook Getting Started Guide with links.
Also use the Help page to search for more info any anything – or ask your Facebook friends.

What to do once you are there
– Search for your friends, family, favorite designers, companies: Clover Needlecraft, Pat Sloan, Kaye Wood, etc.
– Create a group or page for your guild, quilt shop, or family.
– Join pages for your favorite people, causes, etc: Alton Brown from Good Eats, Karina’s Kitchen for great recipes, Anti-GMO stop genetically modifying our food.
– Create an event. Putting a family picnic together? Create an event and everyone can tell you if they are attending and what they are bringing.
– Check out the applications. You can play a game, throw a snowball, send gifts, etc: I had lots of snowball fights this winter and got nice presents placed under my virtual Christmas tree.

Note: these fabrics are not yet available. They will be introduced this fall and usually shipped to quilt shops a few months after that.

I hope to see you at Facebook.

    Joan, I love the Face book but I can never figure out how to answer peoples. Finally hubby got an invite from some friends to look at the new baby and he is showing me how to use it. My son’s high school sweetheart is stationed in Korea and Ben showed me how to write on her wall. I thought everyone could see what you are writing, so I have not been ignoring you just don’t have a clue! It’s the old peoples curse LOL. Just what we need more quilty stuff to look at !!!!!! I love the renderings for the fabric.

    Facebook? Yet another thing I need to learn…. I’m like Penny, I’m cursed with the Old People’s Curse! I can’t figure out how to navigate thru Facebook, and love your newsletter too much to try! Sorry, maybe someday!

    Wish this extra “stuff” was not on Facebook – don’t like it and don’t want to belong – will just enjoy your blog.
