In January I launched a new blog, Yes It’s My Real Name, because I yearned for a place to write about non-work topics. I’ve loved the short, and occasionally longer, daily posts I write there and had initially decided to give up this blog. However, on a daily basis I get notifications that more and more people have begun following this blog. So Bill and I decided that we’ll maintain two blogs. We’ll use Yes It’s My Real Name for daily thoughts unrelated to work. We’re reimagining Craft Nectar as the official blog of Modern Quilt Studio so we can continue to add to the 262 posts I’ve written, which have been read by over 1.2 million visitors on this site. I (Weeks) will be doing most of the writing here but Bill will occasionally post as well.
Our goal is to feature some shorter tips for quilters, updates on what we’re working on and inspiration that we find in our travels. As always we’ll continue to post images and news on Facebook, Pinterest and Instagram as well but longer thoughts and tutorials will appear here. We’ll also have a giveaway to two! We’re also going to re-post some posts from the past six years that answer questions we are frequently asked such as “Why do you think it’s important to prewash fabrics?” or “What kind of iron do you recommend?” or our most popular post ever, “How do I clean my sewing machine?” So stay tuned.
Let us know which topics are of interest to you and we’ll see if we can write something helpful. Hope you like the new look. More about that pattern in our header in the coming weeks!
