    I'm just curious. I manage two sections in the virtuals and there are several more. I was wondering if they are being visited.

    If you haven't seen them you will find

    IRRs
    Irish Chains
    Miniatures
    Bargellos
    Kaleidoscopes

    and several more!

    Here is the link: http://www.quiltingboard.com/virtual_section_list.jsp

    If you need the directions to get there on your own just click on Home then scroll down towards the bottom. You will see
    All user defined sections click on that and it will take you to the list of sections.

    You can choose to subscribe and you will create a list on the home page of the sections you want to keep up with.

    There is lots and lots of great information on there for the areas of interest that you want to check out!!


    The thing I like about it is you don't have to slog through a lot of posts to get to the subject you are interested in. All of the miniatures are in one place or all of the bargello threads are in one place etc.

    Hope you take time to have a look!!

    I didn't know about them. I'm somewhat computer illiterate.
    Thanks for showing us how to get to them.

    I really hadn't paid much attention to them until Billy mentioned it for the VS area. I have added some more since I followed the link you gave!

    Dont' forget, also ... members can nominate categories for new Virtual Sections. They're for your interest and convenience, so we welcome your suggestions. :-)

    Sounds like a good idea to me! Submit your idea to Admin or Patrice and see what they say. I would think it would be a great section. There are alot of crazy quilt threads on here.

    Debra that is one of the reasons I did this thread. I wanted to remind people or let newbies know about it. I think it is a great source of inspiration.

    I'm with Minda. I know there's a lot I don't know about and am learning slowly from posts like this one.

    I don't think I've ever looked at that area. I really wasn't sure what user defined meant. Maybe if its renamed to virtual sections or something comparable that would invite people in. User Defined for me was a little scary (sortof like Star Trek - go where no man has gone before)! :lol: :lol: Sorry! :-D
