For the stitch alongs . . it looks like we have one scheduled to start on either Christmas Day or New Year’s Day (Three Things Sampler); then Smith Sampler will start on February 1 and then And A Forest Grew on March 1. There may be others throughout the year.
There’s not a huge number participating but most of us will probably stitch on these throughout the year.
Any suggestions on how to handle it so those of us who are stitching can share progress/questions/tips along the way?
There’s Instragram. I’m not great with using Instagram but I could learn to do better if the majority wants that.
There’s Facebook. I could start a group there but I’m not a fan of FB but again, I’ll go along with what the majority wants.
Or, we could keep it all on the blog. I don’t really like link boxes. It’s something else I have to pay to use and those links don’t last forever. If you want to share your progress, you could send me a picture and I could post it on the blog or you could post a link in comments if you have photos hosted where others could see them. Any comments with links will be held for my approval because you can imagine things that scammers and sales people try to slip in through links.
A SAL is more fun if we’re all communicating. I’m open for discussions/suggestions.
For blog readers who are not (yet) cross stitchers, would you be opposed to a once a week post that was sharing progress from those who are stitching along?
Thanks for any thoughts you may have and share on this idea.
