|Twelve by Twelve Theme Series Works by Diane Perin Hock|
Hello, friends! Diane here!
We are celebrating the release of our brand new book, "Twelve by Twelve: The International Art Quilt Challenge"
We have learned so much about each other through our challenges, and now we want to learn about you, too! So join in -- check each day to see what the question is, and do comment with your answer.
In the book, I wrote the introduction explaining how our Twelve by Twelve group got started and how the internet has enabled us to form a cohesive group even though many of us have never met in person. In the first chapter, I talk about how I chose the theme "dandelion," how my piece (pictured below) evolved, and how exciting it was to see our first set of challenge quilts revealed online. Because the Internet has played such an important role in our challenge, here is my question:
We Twelves share our project using this blog, our website, and now our book. We use Facebook to announce challenge reveals and other current news. We also use a Yahoo group for our internal communications, to plan, chat, and deal with housekeeping matters. What technical and/or social media tools have you found useful in building or participating in a creative online community?
