Whoopie!!!

Happy New Year to EVERYONE
and Happy New Web Site to US!

Lots of new changes for 2009! Including this new look on the blog and a new look for our website! Our web goddess - guru - mastermind (person with more technical knowledge in her little finger than I am willing to learn in this lifetime) and otherwise known as Amy Novak, launched our new website just before midnight on New Years eve. It's beautiful!

Take a look around www.thequiltcompany.com and let us know what you think! (If you are a frequent visitor to the site and it looks the same, click on your "refresh" button to bring up the new version.) There are still a few bugs to work out and a correction here and there to be made. After all, in some areas Amy is only as good as the information I give her and as I've explained, I don't speak "tec". Keep checking back, because the improvements will keep coming! We plan to add photos to the "blackboard" on the class page so that you can see the project or pattern . The box on the front page (where you see the Tide!) will keep you up-to-date with the latest events. You can sign-up for our e-updates right from the home page.....

Here on the blog I've made a few changes too! The new header features a photo of some of the fabrics I've designed. The more colorful page is bright and cheery and have you noticed that I've enlarged the text? Is all of that a good or bad thing?

Let us know what you think of our new look and the new features on the website. Many of the changes were made because of customer suggestions, we welcome your comments too!

While you are on the site, why not click on the shop hop bunny on the home page and join the January Internet Hop? You can find our "you found it" bunny on our fabric page and get started. The more sites you visit, the better opportunity you have to win prizes. No weather to contend with, you don't even have to get dressed, you can do it in your jammies!

Enjoy!
Happy New Year!
Karen

I like the updates to the web site - Nice job! I can never seem to remember where I put the newsletter so having all the information on the web is very helpful for me. Keep it coming!

The new "look" is great! And of course bigger type is a good thing! LOL! Think of your audience - mostly middle aged women who wear bifocals!

It was so nice to read about Aunt Jean, I miss her. And I loved your gift giving ideas for Lindsey. Fun, fun, fun. She will always remember how special you made this Christmas. See you Sunday. GranmaRu

The larger type is ok, but no matter what size is hard to read over the textured background, but I love the side borders, kicky fun design!
