I had an interesting experience recently. It involved Facebook and a friend request. Now, I don’t know about you but I am not in the race to see how many “friends” I can get on Facebook. And if I receive a friend request from someone I don’t know then I usually don’t accept it.
So, when I got an email notifying me of a friend request from someone I didn’t know, I automatically went on to Facebook to delete the request. Luckily, the person making the request had also sent me a message introducing herself and explaining why she had made the request.
It turned out she is the editor of the magazine Fiber Art Now and wanted permission to use a picture of my quilt STELLA! in an article about QuiltCon that would appear in the summer edition of their magazine. How cool is that?
So I have learned not to be too hasty in my “friend request” decisions. And now, if I want to make a friend request to someone who may not know (or remember) me, I will send a message along with some explanation.
Today I got a copy of the magazine.
And I was thrilled to see the article about QuiltCon.
The whole magazine is a feast for the eyes, beautiful photos of amazing projects. Pick up a copy if you get a chance. Or subscribe. Check out Fiber Art Now.
