Here at Brown Bird Designs I am always searching for new and interesting things to do and talk about. I am not sure about you, but I can entertain myself for hours on end. Just give me some fabric, a sewing machine, food and Netflix and I could be a shut-in. At least that is what I always joke about. I think it is so important to find ways to build a community and make connections. I would love for this to be a creative hub for events going on in our quilting community so we can become stronger. So it is easier to find out what is going on and how you can join in.
I will be periodically searching for Block of the Months, Quilt-A-Longs, quilt challenges and block challenges. I will add a short description from the site, and add a link to the site where the guidelines are. All this information will go on a calendar so you can see what is going on month to month and week to week. I will do my best to get as much as I can filled into the calendar, but I fear that I will not be complete. I encourage everyone to let me know what event you are hosting or participating in so I can add them to the calendar. I will not be adding swaps because they close so fast, usually by the time I find out about them they are closed 😐
I am calling the calendar and my newsletter Feeding the Needle because to grow personally, spiritually and to become a Quilting Guru, we must feed ourselves with knowledge and experiences.
