Be a Quilter + Author by Publishing Your Own Quilt Catalog

So excited! I've been working on a new quilt project.

How would you like to be a quilter/artist + author this year?! If you know how to use Microsoft Word, have Internet access, and at least a dozen digital images of your quilts or other textile art, YOU CAN make your own quilt catalog! And, if you are a cloth doll maker, a mixed media artist, a quilted postcard maker and more - you are welcome to participate as well. If your guild is hosting an exhibit, the steps here can also show you how to easily create a catalog of your guild exhibit!

I will host a series of blog posts showing step-by-step how you can create your own 24-page, full-color catalog - and have it for sale on Amazon.com.

Take a moment to visit the PublishYourQuilts blog and sign up there for emails of each post. The series will start on Monday, March 26. Is this something you might be interested in? What would you want to be sure to learn? Leave a comment here so that I can be sure to include in the series of posts! Enjoy!

This is going to be a wonderful new venture for me....I am about to collect various photos and select meaningful sayings to go along with each quilt. Each one has a story and speaks to me in varied ways....simply love quilting now to get the catalog published.
