A New Year & A New Linky Party

I am so pleased to announce this monthly linky party. I love learning new things, but more importantly, I love sharing them. I am hoping to fill a little of my need to teach and yours to learn. I learn new ways of doing things daily, and I hope to help you do the same.

I did get in touch with Yvonne @QuiltingJetgirl and Cheryl @MeadowMistDesigns who have had some linky parties and festivals on tutorials in the past to be sure I didn’t conflict with what they do or had planned. They both gave me their blessing so I am pleased to be doing this.


I looked at hash tags and came up with the #TTot22 for Tips Tutorial on the 22nd. There was another shorter one but that had some sketchy stuff so you can remember it as T(ater)Tot22 if that is easier for you, it may be for me! My first tutorial for this will be on the (you guessed it) 22nd of January. The code for the link is below (I think).

Linky parties are about about community – supporting each other in what we love to do. This will be a monthly link up whose sole purpose is to highlight your tips and tutorials. It will be open from the 22nd to the end of each month. AND, there will be a tab at the top that collects them all in one place, so you can always go to the end of my post and find the link you were looking for. For my first, I have been promising you this tutorial on how to make a mosaic in Electric Quilt 8. You will see it on the 22nd.

So spread the word to your friends to stop in and visit. It will be fun to see the tutorials and tips that I collect, old or new! See you on the 22nd!
