Looking Forwards and Backwards – 2013 Newsletter

January 1, 2014

Here are a few highlights from our 2013 Newsletter which is now available: To read a complete 2013 Newsletter from our center  click here   

I have been writing a blog for our center since April 2010 and chose a reputable and reliable Blog hosting site – WordPress.  Before this I didn’t know what a blog was! The word sounded like a kind of heathen practice.

My vision is to communicate with and inspire  students at our center and online students, most who live in the U.S.A. and Canada with a few people sprinkled in Australia, Britain, Switzerland and Belgium.  Many, but not all of the programs that run at our studio extend over a time period up to 2 or 3 years.  Classes keep in touch with each other and we forge close relationships. The blog seems to be a really good way to show and tell what is going on at our center. In fact, it acts like a newsletter.

I have now written 243 posts (little stories) and have posted hundreds of pictures. We have many followers.  Followers are those people who are sent an email every time I write a new blog. We have had 61,337 views since 2010.  (Viewers are those who look at the blogs but are not emailed about them.)

Comments and Feedback

I like to think that the blog is a positive storytelling device and is an important landmark in the history of Art and Stitch today. The blog began with my students in mind but since then hundreds of other interested textile people also started reading it.  I appreciate your feedback and thoughts.  This blog is for you.  You can do that by commenting on the blog itself or email me.  Send me ideas for a blog, consider writing one and let me know what you are interested in.       Happy New Year. Gail

    Happy New Year to everyone – I really enjoy the blog. It keeps me up to date on what’s happening since I can’t be there as often as I’d like.
