A Twitter Trial

OK here's a funny one for you (and for me too).  Tracey Pereira, who is a long arm quilter as well as owning a fabric shop called Quilt Me Happy, and I have been chatting about her doing some long arm quilting for me. Since the subject of LA quilting was raised on this blog last week, Tracey offered to answer a lot of the questions, queries and concerns many of your raised and we are planning a series of blogposts to talk about those so please keep the questions, queries and concerns coming.


In the meantime, Tracey and I are going to have a twitter chat next Tuesday morning (24 Jan) from 10am til 11am UK time discussing how she is going to quilt the swoon quilt top I have made for my sister.  The idea is that we have the kind of conversation on twitter that she would normally have with her clients in her studio (but she and I live too far apart for that).  And if any of you would like to join in the chat, ask questions, give opinions, ideas and thoughts etc. we will be tweeting using the hashtag #LQTPQ (standing for Lily's Quilts / Tee Pee Quilting).

And we'll then put a transcript of our twitter conversation (including any extra tweeps joining in) on my blog so you can all get a feel for how a piecer / LA quilter conversation might go.  Does that sound as fun and interesting as Tracey and I think it will be or do we just need to get a life?!  I tweet as @lilysquilts and Tracey tweets as @quiltmehappy so make sure you get on over and follow us before Tuesday morning if you're interested in listening or joining in.  And following the conversation on tweetchat.com apparently makes it easier to follow what everyone's saying and to chat along.  Remember to enter the hashtag #LQTPQ when you get there.

  1. Never tweeted, think it might be a bridge too far...

  2. Sounds like fun. Tweetchat.com is a useful website for following twitter hashtag conversations. Plus it automatically adds the hashtag so no one will miss your tweet.

  3. Sounds like fun. Tracey lives close to me so it would be interesting to see how she works. I really want to earn to LA and she would be my local tutor.

  15. Gosh you are so up to the minute with the social media! I will try and remember to look in, as it might help me understand these bloomin hashtags a bit better (never mind the LA quilting - which just sounds like it's all done by Hollywood fil stars!)
