    Check this out on Facebook

    You might be interested in what Pennsylvania is advertising on Face book to encourage those interested in quilting to visit their state this summer. Sounds great, doesn't it? I found it on Facebook under: Pennsylvania Row by Row Quilt Shop Hop. Enjoy.
    Do not follow where the path may lead. Go, instead, where there is no path and leave a trail.

    I didn't see anything special. I must be missing something.

    It says "Join Pennsylvania Shop Hop. No fees. Visit shops from 7/1 to 9/2 and receive free pattern from each. Mix and match rows to create your own unique quilt." People often post requests when they are planning a trip for names of quilt shops or fabric stores they might visit while there.

    Good for Pennsylvania advertising this on their travel/leisure post.
    I am hoping that someone on this board will be able to post a finished quilt from their travel. Should be interesting.

    Our town could use taking a page from Pa. Advertise tourist attractions. This is what it is. Has nothing to do with facebook mentality. It was just used as an advertising tool.

    While I don't post on facebook I find it is a great way to keep tabs on what my kids & nices and nephews are doing because they do post on facebook. They also post wonderful pictures of my grandkids and great nices and nephews.
    It is a tool that I am happy for.

    I don't have a facebook account, but I do Pinterest. I am careful what I pin as I don't want to infringe on anyone (unless it has the pin it; I don't pin ! If there is an item I am interested in I send it to the favorites!LOL).
    Its a great social media just not for me tho ...

    Thanks! Although I'm not in your area that's very thoughtful of you to post the info for other members. Most of us with FB get ads that are in our own area, so we wouldn't get to see that particular one maybe.
    You can google the info and some of the individual shops come up so you would be able to "visit" them online without heading to FB. Here's the 1st one I saw http://friendshipstarquiltshop.com/

    You do not have to join, sign up or post on facebook to read the PA row by row thread. You can enjoy pictures, see names of stores, see the store's row pattern, etc.

    If you do want to comment, you do need to sign up, but if you are leery of FB, for whatever reason, you can still find good info on threads that are open to the public.
