Social Media

Did you know that the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild  currently has 53 members!!!  That's quite a growth from our first meeting in March 2010 with 16 members!!  The word is getting out about our awesomeness!!!!

Some of you may not realize that our guild has an online presence on various social media platforms. In addition to our blog here and our MQG Group page, make sure you check us out on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Flickr and Pinterest.  Let us know your "handle" on any of these social media sites so we can keep up with you as well.  Especially with so many new members,  we may have missed following someone.  Also, if you have a blog and it is not listed on our sidebar,  please let us know so we can add you.

We want to know: what is YOUR favorite form of social media?  Leave a comment here letting us know.  Again, there are prizes involved ;-)  Ask Leslie and Alejandrina, our previous blog comment winners!
