Will you be doing free motion quilting especially for people like me too scared to try it
- Sarah WickettParticipant@amblesidequilterJanuary 9, 2018 at 4:25 pm #11068
Hi Fiona, There are a few of us LA quilters that are also bloggers on the site that would be more than happy to answer any questions you have regarding FMQ. I like many started quilting on my domestic machine. If you would like to see a blog om FMQ please feel free to ask.

On the members page it would be good to be able to actually able to search members by name. There is a search bar on the page, but it is for the site in general not for members. Or alternatively you could have letters under the sort by box, so you can at least start from the letter your looking for. Hope that makes sense?

Hi – it all looks fantastic, and I’m sure you will iron out any wrinkles in time – One factual error – Strawberry Fayre in Chagford has ceased trading and closed down due to retirement after 40 years.

Question for Admin – would it be possible to put our Quilting Group onto the website under groups. We have our own website and I would like to connect to this one if possible please. It would also give other members who live in our area the chance to come along and join our group. Thanks Sue Davey

How do I add an image to my members section?
I’m into art quilts and work in the committed to cloth studio would you be interested in a blogger for art quilts? I’d be happy to give it a go I’m just setting up my own blog http://www.beneaththeseams.co.uk
I’d be happy to give it a go.
Well done with the site.

Hi. How do I contact you as I ordered 2 UKQU badges but have only received one.

I would love to see someone compare some of the different waddings available, with photos. The photos on here are so clear we could get a sense of the difference between them unlike the photos on shop sites where they all look the same. I know it’s a very personal choice but I would find it interesting.

Having opened a shop on the website last night, I’m thrilled to see that I’ve already had a few downloads (after all the patterns are for free, and we all love that!). Looking in my Seller’s Dashboard, all of the orders are listed as ‘Processing’. Shouldn’t this automatically be set to Completed, Processed, Done or something similar? After all the pdf is automatically available to the purchaser?

Hello, enjoying the site, couple of ‘things’. I find it loads very slowly for me. I have slow broadband but I’ve compared it to other sites and it seems to be site related. Probably too vague for you to help at all so my next question is – can you do anything about identifying each bloggers post to them? They’re great but I am trying to follow just a few (I should be sewing not reading!) and as more and more are added finding the ones that are particularly interested in to see if they have written new posts seems to be getting complicated. Now this might be me as I am not yet used to the format and how things work. How do I ‘follow’someone and get their updates? Thanks

I seem to gravitate to the blogs but would appreciate a name or pseudonym at the head of each so I know whose blog I am reading. At the moment it is difficult to continue reading a blog I have found I like and is a bit of a ‘lucky dip’!

I have a suggestion, I am unable to find a comprehensive, up to date list of charities requiring help with anything from hearts, to quilts. We are often referred to joining other FB groups in respect of this, but I think UKQU should have its own current comprehensive resource/list.

Give members the ability to edit – or add to any comment they make. (Predictive can be unforgiving)
😳 Oh just noticed I can edit this current post on this section, but unable to edit/add to a previous post or comment on a blog!

With the growing dissatisfaction with social media platforms, such as Facebook, harvesting users data etc.
Will UKQU consider creating a site forum. This way all of the discussion groups could be managed/moderated inhouse.
Building a decent searchable knowledge base for UKQU rather than relying on a faceless data mining SM enterprise who
are in control to host UKQU groups.
PS Formatting eg wordwrap is terrible on comments sitewide.

Great idea, the forum already exists, new subject threads can be set up anytime, not sure it could replace Facebook as that serves a specific purpose but an additional place for views and help would be quite simple to set up.
We already have a knowledge base on the site, but it could do with more input, if anyone wants to help out then feel free to send in additions.

Hi, thank you to the website team for all you do. I would like to see a flagged map of where groups meet, or at least a county index. Thank you.
I echo those above in wanting to know who’s blog I am reading at the head of the column.
