It is amazing how many quilting resources and groups are available online! If you are fairly new to quilting or you are looking for online assistance, the following information might be of help:

If you love to do applique by hand or want to learn how, please ask to join this group and then share! Please do not request to join this group simply to promote products or long arm quilting services. The emphasis is NOT to promote quilt shops.

*Celebrate HAND Quilting:  This Facebook group was designed and founded by Caron Mosey. The group is all about doing HAND quilting. Yes, that means doing all those little stitches by hand, one stitch at a time, NOT by machine!

*Quilters Classifieds designed and founded by Barbara M. Burnham. Currently at 47K members · 10+ posts a day This is a Buy and Sell Group ·

RULE: 1.) This is a place for quilters to market/sale items that pertain to quilting, such as (Fabric, Thread, Quilts, Sewing Machines, Long Arms, etc.) No craft items please. 🙂 You may have up to 5 posts, and each post can have up to 10 items for sale it in. Please remember to delete your post when the items have sold.

You may “Bump” your post once a day. Only the items you are selling can be in the photos ~ No warehouse type photos, or huge amounts of fabric, just the 10 items that are for sale. PLEASE remember to delete you post once it has sold.

Also, posts that have been inactive for a few weeks may be deleted by admin. Albums are not allowed in this group.

Please use the “Sell Something Tab” when creating your posts. This will make it easier for buyers to find your post.

  1. I wish I could sew by hand. I, just this year, began quilting. I have carpal tunnel syndrome and rheumatoid arthritis..so hand stitching is almost completely out for me. I love the look of hand quilted pieces though.
