Using Pinterest

Zig Zag HST Rainbow Quilt - Free Shipping in US. $275. 

There was an interesting article on the front page of the Los Angeles Times, today, "Pinterest pierces the ranks of the social-networking elite."  One of the things the article said was, "Facebook is like being at a cocktail party, whereas Pinterest is almost like a Tupperware party," said Scot Wingo, chief executive of ChannelAdvisor, which advises companies on e-commerce. "People are not just chatting about anything — sports talk, or 'oh my god, my mom is sick,' or 'I love my cat' — it's already more commercial. It's people saying, 'I love this product.' "

Stepping Stone Quilt - Free Shipping in US.  $285.

By the time I finished reading the article, the light bulb had gone off, over my head.  If you know me, you know I love Pinterest, but I'd never thought of using it to promote anything.  I've always pinned images and sayings that I love, things that speak to me.

Check Quilt - Free Shipping in US.  $230.

Right after breakfast I logged on the Pinterest and created a new board, "Etsy Quilts".  I'm hoping that exposing my quilts another way, might sell one or two.  Keeping my fingers crossed.

Plus Quilt - Free Shipping USA.  $275.

These quilts and more are pinned on Etsy Quilts, or  you can find them in my Etsy shop, Janice Elaine Sews.
Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
