The Internet is already huge and it is growing exponentially.  Quilters can surf the World Wide Web to:

  • Find more information on competitions, calls for entry, quilt festivals, retreats, workshops and more,
  • Access information which is not otherwise readily accessible through quilt news networks and online books and magazines
  • Correspond with quilting friends near or far through email, social networks, real-time chat, chat rooms, groups and e-lists
  • Buy and sell quilts through websites and online auction facilities like eBay and Etsy
  • Learn everything they need to know about quilting from basic methods to the latest surface design techniques from a wide range of tutorials–all for free!

For example, the links below will give you access to three of the most popular quilt magazines. They are accessible through each separate webpage and on Facebook as well. You can also subscribe to each FREE newsletter and receive regular updates by email.
