Publisher Pieces Together New Quilting Website
May 19, 2011 - Northbrook, Ill. - Prime Publishing LLC, a rapidly growing internet media publisher in the cooking and crafting industries, has launched FaveQuilts.com, an aggregate quilting website that offers hundreds of free quilt patterns, quilting tutorials, and free quilted gift ideas from talented quilt designers and bloggers. FaveQuilts.com allows quilters to find a wide range of quilting projects that will fit their varying skill levels and time constraints as well as their personal quilting styles. Novice quilters can learn how to make a quilt from a variety of quilting tutorials and easy quilt patterns, and beginning and experienced quilters alike will enjoy projects like baby quilt patterns, quilt block patterns, large wall quilts, free motion quilt designs, and Christmas quilting ideas.
Quilting is well known as a rich part of American history and folk art, but it is also a growing industry in today's crafting community (Quilting in America 2010 report by Quilts, Inc.). With 14% of American households involved in quilting in 2010, it's clear that quilting today goes far beyond flea markets and Amish communities.
According to the Quilting in American 2010 report, the average "dedicated" quilter owns over $3,500 worth of spare quilting fabric. Quilters are always looking for new projects and inspiration to use up that mountainous fabric stash, but quilt patterns and books can be expensive and outdated. Although 73% of quilters use the Internet and 62% of them are visiting quilting sites, it can be time-consuming to find the most up-to-date patterns and tutorials from quilting bloggers and designers among a sea of search results. In keeping with the challenges mentioned, crafters report that limited time and limited budget are the two biggest reasons for not engaging in their favorite hobbies more often (Craft & Hobby Association Attitude & Usage Study, 2010). FaveQuilts allows quilters to spend less time and money seeking out patterns and quilting information and more time at their sewing machines doing what they love to do.
At FaveQuilts.com, quilters have hundreds of free quilt patterns, project ideas, and tutorials right at their fingertips. Users can quickly search the site using a variety of different criteria to find exactly the types of patterns they need. FaveQuilts.com also offers a user center that allows quilters to log in and save patterns so they can easily access all their favorite ideas and projects on one page. This new quilting website makes searching for quilting ideas fun, easy, and exciting with the newest tutorials, projects, and fabric inspiration from the online quilting community.
