Re: Your Quilting Blog
I recently came across your quilting blog, and I really enjoyed reading it so I wanted to introduce myself. I work for xxx which among other things, has one of the largest directories of quilting teachers in the U.S. It provides a lot of utility for people who are or want to find a quilting teacher, and is also good for finding other people who are passionate about quilting.
I wanted to get on your radar, and I hope you’ll have the opportunity to check out the site and pass it along to your readers, colleagues and friends if you like it. Please let me know if you have any questions. I’d welcome the chance to give you more information either by email or phone.
Re: My Quilting Blog
Dear Mr. Joshua,
Thank you so much for the email! It’s obvious that you’ve done your research because my website is one of the best known, most successful quilting blogs in all the land. I LIVE AND BREATHE QUILTING, LOL! But I’m sure you realized my passion for quilts just as soon as you clicked on my site and saw the hundreds of quilts I have on my homepage. For the love of Pete, I’m almost Amish! (But I still love zippers, so don’t worry about that.)
I would be so honored if you’d add WendiAarons.com to your large directory of quilting teachers in the U.S.! After dedicating my life to this art form, I have an incredible amount of quilting wisdom to pass along to “newbie quilties” (that’s what we call them in “tha biz.”) For example, did you know that you need thread and fabric to make a quilt? It’s true! And that’s just a taste of the insider information I regularly pass along to the thousands of Quilt Enthusiasts who subscribe to my blog, sir. A taste.
Anyway, I could talk quilts with you all day, LOL, but I’m expecting a huge shipment of calico and gingham any minute, so I’d better head down to my workroom and get the industrial looms firing. I have a SUPER HUGE project I’m working on right now, but it’s very hush-hush. OK, OK, you twisted my arm! The rumors are true! I’ve been commissioned to sew a puffy pink quilt for the new Princess of England Kate Middlemarch! Squee! Somebody pinch me! (But not too hard because I have a vitamin deficiency and bruise like an old piece of fruit. Seriously, I sat on a sewing needle once and for the next two weeks, I looked like I’d been beaten by a South Jersey pimp.)
In conclusion, it’s SO nice to meet you, Joshua! I do hope we cross paths at the Quilters Invitational conference held next month at the Idaho Falls Ramada. By popular request, I’ll be holding demonstrations of my legendary Aarons stitchery techniques as well as giving the keynote speech entitled, “Rectangles or Squares: How the Future of Quilting Looks On a Global Economic Scale.” Be sure you don’t miss it!
