Are you familiar with #TALKNT?

For those that are not familiar with #TALKNT, it is a fun event where quilters connect on Twitter every Tuesday.  #TALKNT is hosted by Cara of  CaraQuilts.com and their are fun chats that cover all things sewing, quilting & fabric. Each chat has a sponsor and participants can win prizes too!

All you have to do is have a twitter account is add the hastag  “#talknt” to the end of your tweets and follow this hastag to be involved.  But, it is easier to see all the chatting by clicking this link to participate in these Tuesday chats: http://tweetchat.com/room/talknt

The weekly chat starts

  • 9pm, Eastern
  • 8pm, Central
  • 6pm, Pacific

And, the first Tuesday every month is sponsored by Fat Quarter Shop.

For those participating in Talkin’ Tuesdays, Cara also has a post where participants can sign up.

This last week, I won 3 yards of Children at Play by Sarah Jane for Michael Miller Fabrics.  To clarify, this was 3 yards of my choice of fabrics from this beautiful collection.   There were so many to choose from I felt like a kid in a candy store.  I ended up selecting  Children at Play Cream Pinwheels and Children at Play Berry Wallpaper Flowers . And, I’ve already recevied these beautiful fabrics too!

Yes, #Talknt was late Tuesday and this is Saturday.  Talk about fast service!  Kimberly at The Fat Quarter Shop is amazing!

Thank you Cara and The Fat Quarter Shop.  I have a design in mind that I can’t wait to use this fabric and am looking forward to quilting with it!

I wanted to share this to formally say thank you, but to also encourage others to participate in #Talknt.

Lastly, I’ve also heard that Cara is working on a big project to make several different styles of memory quilts and is hoping to get some donations.  She’d like to get any clothing/fabric items that might be something one would use to memorialize in a quilt.  And, she is hoping that these items cover a lifespan, so anything from baby clothes, tshirts, ties, wedding/prom dresses, old linens/bedding, etc.  If you are interested in donating something to help Cara make such memory quilts you can contact her on Twitter, or  via her site Cara Quilts.
