Tuesday's Tips and Tricks: Navigating the MQG site

As you know the Orlando MQG has officially joined the Modern Quilt Guild and all paid members should have received an email by now from the MQG welcoming you and providing a link to the main site where you can set up your profile. If you have not received this email, please contact Rene' or leave a comment here, and we will make sure you get set up.

The website an be a little tricky to navigate at first, but I encourage you to take a little time to browse the site and familiarize yourself with the various tabs.  Quite a bit of chatter and useful information is available in the Forums, and we can add what we would like on our own group page.  To help us customize our page, please leave a comment on topics you would like to see discussed on our group page as well as other features desired.

If you haven't already, I recommend subscribing to the MQG newsletter by email to ensure you do not miss any important benefits.  Since our guild has joined, one free pattern has already been released for download.  This will be a regularly monthly feature in 2014.

Below are a few helpful links on the MQG site:
  • The direct link to our Orlando MQG group guild page:  http://community.themodernquiltguild.com/groups/orlando-mqg-0 Please make sure you "Join" the Orlando MQG as well as clicking to "Follow".  If posts are public (as most of ours are now), you will be allowed to comment even if you haven't joined.  I have noticed that some members have activated their profile but not joined our group.
