New Ways to Connect with Chatterbox Quilts

Hi everyone:

I'm excited to tell you about a new way that I'll be communicating with you, my quilty readers.
No, I won't be telephoning you - we'd be on the phone for hours! 
You know that I have a Facebook fan page as well as a Facebook group. I also have several Pinterest boards where I post more than just quilty things. You can see what's happening in my day on Instagram, when I remember to take photos, that is. If you aren't following me on these platforms and would like to, I'd love to have you join me.

Yes, I love social media, but some of my readers only receive my blogposts and miss out on all the other things that I'm doing. And some people aren't on these social media sites (yes, shocking, I know!). So I've decided to publish a monthly digest

In this monthly newsletter you'll receive:

  • Information about quilting techniques and helpful tips
  • Advance notifications about new pattern releases
  • Prior notice of upcoming videos. You do know that I have a Youtube channel, right? (Look forward to exciting changes in this area soon - really soon.)
  • Cute cat pictures!

Here's where I need your help.

I need a name for this monthly digest, so I'm asking my quilty readers to help me out. 

Post your suggestions for the name in the comments below by May 19, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. MST. I'll announce the winning name after May 20, 2014 and if you're the reader who suggested it, you'll receive a prize: three Chatterbox Quilts e-patterns (downloadable PDF's) and I'll even let you pick which ones you'd like. 

You could win Twirling Whirlies e-pattern
Sorry, mountains are not included
You're all so creative, that you may even have more than one suggestion. That's great! Just enter them in the comment section below, ensuring that you leave a separate comment for each suggestion. I wouldn't want to miss any of them!

After you've left your name suggestion, fill in your email information in the right sidebar on my blog or enter your information here so you'll be all signed up to receive Chatterbox Quilts Digest (it will soon have a new name, but I'm going with this one for now).

Look for this area on the right sidebar to enter your information

A chance to win three FREE patterns and your name in my next blogpost as the winner - I think this sounds like a great opportunity. I'm really looking forward to reading your suggestions as I love connecting with other quilters. There's always so much I learn from other creatives. 
I enjoy chatting with other creatives - I learn so much
I can hardly wait to start this new way of communicating with all of you.

P.S. Tell your quilty and crafty friends about this contest so they can post their suggestions by May 19, 2014 at 6:00 p.m. too.

P.P.S Remember to sign up to receive "digest winning name suggested by you, my quilty reader" each month.

You'll see more of me each month
