Monkey and I have been posting “quilting memes” on the Inklingo Facebook page. At least, I think that’s what they are called. (Please correct me if I am wrong.)
I was mentally cutting up those draperies—under the influence of the spirit of Lucy Boston.
I have stacks of oldies but goodies on DVD. I listen when I am working or sewing.
Everything seems to have a connection to quilting.
I posted this one on the Inklingo Facebook page yesterday. I post 3 or 4 times a day.
- Inklingo on Yahoo Not Growing
- Inklingo on Facebook Growing
- All About Inklingo Blog Growing FAST
The Inklingo Yahoo Group has been around since 2006 and it is still a great place to meet and share Inklingo experiences but it has not been growing. Quilters don’t seem to love Yahoo as much as they used to.
All the action seems to be shifting to Facebook.
Inklingo Hexagons (No Waste Fussy Cutting)
Monkey and I resisted Facebook for a long time, but it has become a lot of fun.
It is fast and easy for me to share photos on Facebook. Yahoo is not as convenient and only members can see the photos.
There are also more quilters who “like” Inklingo on FB than there are quilters in the Inklingo Yahoo Group!
I can finish one of these hexagon flowers every 15 minutes, take a photo, and have it on Facebook before my needle cools off.
If you are one of the quilters who has resisted opening a Facebook account for one reason or another, the spontaneity is what you are missing.
I think the small number of “likes” on the Inklingo Facebook page is because I personally resisted Facebook for so long.
Only a small number of the quilters who use Inklingo have liked the Facebook page OR joined Yahoo.
IF YOU HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT
- like the Inklingo Facebook page.
- add it to your Newsfeed.
- share my Inklingo photos with your friends.
- post your photos on the Inklingo Facebook page.
IF YOU DON’T HAVE A FACEBOOK ACCOUNT
You can still see everything we post on Facebook!
You are NOT excluded, but you cannot “like” the page or leave comments.
You might want to open a Facebook account with very limited info about yourself if you are concerned about privacy, so you can be part of the scene without any risk.

Monkey and I are NOT abandoning Yahoo, but we love how fast and easy to share photos on Facebook, on the fly.
There was another very heavy snowfall yesterday. That’s on top of the deep snow everywhere! You can see photos on the Inklingo Facebook page, okay?

Hi Dianne, Thank you for visiting the Inklingo Facebook page. I am still managing to post 3 times a day there. It was fun to post my newest POTC block last night the instant I finished pressing it.
I understand your concerns about Facebook and I am very happy to know that you enjoy the blog! Hugs, Linda & Monkey
Love the fussy cut pstterns and always look for you on FB! Many thanks!
No Facebook for me but I have been visiting your page. I’m in the Yahoo group but I’ve only chimed in a time or two. I follow your blog which I absolutely love.
I don’t do Facebook and I find Yahoo Neo frustrating, due to its dreadful slowness in loading pages.
I do follow your blog :-).

Haha! I love these movie references! Whenever my husband Tim and I watch movies, we are quick to spot the quilts and shout QUILT! Often we spot it at the same time. So, did you notice the QUILT on the bed in the first photo? “QUILT!!!”
I think all of the internet venues offer community for quilters in one way or another. I like to think of the members of the Yahoo group as those who like to correspond at length and get Mail, and the Facebook / Twitter members as those who like to go to a party and either stand and observe what’s happening now, or make conversation in real time. One is not better than the other, but they suited for different purposes, tastes and likes. And with the Facebook / Twitter Apps for phones and tablets out now, it’s easy to be notified when something new is posted if you like to keep your finger on the quilting pulse out there.
I’m glad you found a way to juggle it all, and keep the movie pics coming! They are hilarious! But please, more with QUILTs in them! 🙂
I laughed out loud at you posting pics of hexagon flowers “before your needle cools off.” I have such wonderful visions of a smoking needle! And I am enjoying ALL of your posts on FB! It is an easy way to quickly post a pic or two that can be shared over and over again. Getting the word out about Inklingo! And also keeping in contact with dear friends. Thanks, Linda!
Hi Claudia, I’m sorry I did not make that clear. I am NOT going to Facebook entirely. I used to feel the same way you do, so I understand. Hugs, Linda & Monkey
You have been making Facebook more fun for me — maybe still not so understandable, but much more fun and attractive.
Is there really going to be a first day of sprain there? I’m starting to think spring is bypassing us entirely. I refuse to look at the forecasts until July! LOL
Lovin’ the hexies, but I’m not on Facebook, and I’m not going to Facebook. This is one quilter that will be lost if you go to Facebook entirely. I have connected through your links, but there will not be a page with my name. Sorry.
