1 Replies and 2831 Views Pinterest  2831  1 Started by  Deleted User I think Pinterest would be a great way to get the younger generation into quilting. If a store or brand started a Pinterest board featuring some cool quilt designs, people will see them and say, 'How can I make something like that' Young people want to see the result, so they can know if it is something they want to replicate. Then they will start getting interested in making their own designs as well. Young people surf the web incredibly fast, and we need pictures that grab our attention. The...

2 Replies and 2952 Views Social Networking  2952  2 Started by  Judel Niemeyer Buls In 2009, I had a discussion with my dad about how averse to social networking that Judy Niemeyer would be, thinking we would never really be able to engage that type of an audience because Judy is a designer. She lives at a sewing machine and in front of a design wall...where she should be. And, where we all love her. This is when dad said...well, you're a social networking maniac. Your kids can't even have a conversation with each other without you sharing it with the world! Why don't ...

0 Replies and 1900 Views Expand Quilting Worldwide  1900  0 Started by  SuperUser Account Go to a quilt show or read the demographics of the user of QuiltingHub and it is impossible to deny quilters are getting younger. We may not be giving them what they are looking for in our quilt shops and our guilds. In fact, we may have drifted away from the things that keep all quilters engaged in quilting. We can expand to quilters young and old. We can grow this industry and the number of quilters. FYI - QuiltingHub Demographics - http://www.quiltinghub.com/Articles/ArticleID/225 I ...
