As I’m writing this, I’m just back from a 2 week vacation in Europe and trying to adjust to “normal” life again - what, no castles, palaces or cathedrals to visit today?! While I usually try to fit in some quilt shops during my vacations, this is the first one in a long time where I didn’t do that. Granted, there weren’t many quilt shops in the countries I was in, but I actively took a break from the quilting business side of my life to take a much needed rest.
There have been some changes in my personal life recently (I retired from my day job) and this will allow me to spend more time on my quilting business and my own personal quilting (which never seems to take first place!).
As you know, there are never enough hours in a day to do everything you want to do and so I have been reevaluating how I currently spend my time and how I want to spend my time going forward, which brings me to this blogpost.
As a loyal blog reader, you’ll know that I publish YouTube videos every week, work as a Janome Canada artisan, host a Facebook page and group (hello, Chatties!) in addition to creating courses and content for my email subscribers. Of course my most important “work” is hosting and managing The Quilter’s Way, my online quilting membership. All of these ventures take a significant amount of time and while I can’t find more time (still haven’t been able to clone myself or invent a time machine), I can decide how and where I want to spend my time on my business.
So, I have decided to discontinue the Chatterbox Quilts’ blog effective today.
Don’t panic! You can still get the same information on my YouTube channel or by following me on social media, such as on Facebook or Instagram or by joining my Chatterbox Quilts’ Facebook group (and becoming a Chattie). I also have lots of free information that will come right to your inbox when you subscribe to one - or all - of my email newsletters. Just click here to get access to this valuable information.
If you want to get the most information from me, you can also join The Quilter’s Way where you’ll become a new member of an active and fun community of quilters from around the world. In addition to connecting with other members, you’ll have access to a wide variety of quilting information in the form of articles or video courses. It’s an ever evolving membership that grows based on members’ requests.
If you have been one of my blog readers, thank you for reading. I appreciate your support and comments. If you aren’t yet following me on social media or haven’t yet subscribed to my YouTube channel, I hope you’ll do so to continue keeping up with what’s happening at Chatterbox Quilts.
Looking forward to keeping in touch with you!
