    Hi guys! I am giving a talk at my local Quilt Society meeting on Friday night and was wondering if I could ask your opinions???

    I am talking about how the internet can be used to help us quilters and wondered if you could spare a moment to tell me your TOP 3 internet resources - whether they be shops or free pattern sites - tutorials - etc etc.....

    Of course I am going to be telling the group about this forum!!!

    Also - if you mention a shop, could you please take a moment to look at their site ansd see if they will ship to Ireland? It would be a shame if we got loads of great ideas and then couldn't use them!!! I would check myself but I have very poor internet here up inthe hills of Ireland and you may well do it a lot faster than I can!!!

    Thanks so much in anticipation of some interesting responces!!!

    You tube videos showing help with techniques when you can't get to a class. example curver master foot,
    and the cutting mat with the slots, sorry I can't remember the name of it.

    I have a question. I have a load of sites bookmarked for various things from newbie info to say free applique sites, purses, pin cushions, etc. Does your guild have newbies in it that could use that type of info?

    Oh yes! We have new quilters and old hands!

    A lot of our members are not too keen on the internet - that is why I am giving the talk - I find so much help, encouragement and information (not to mention bargains!) on here!!!

    ANy ideas would be gratefully recieved.
