As a non-member you can read almost everything on the site, but it's only as a member that you get the full benefit of the Popular Patchwork experience.

We hope Popular Patchwork will become one of the world's best patchwork and quilting sites, with a great mixture of projects, and features such as profiles of well-known textile artists, quilt show reports from around the world, and technique articles for different levels of skill. We have a range of people writing for us, from professional quilters and artists to amateur enthusiasts – and even you can write for us. You can submit articles via your member profile, and we can publish your work online!

We have a lively forum and gallery section where you can get advice and comments on your latest projects from other quilters, both amateur and professional. As a member you can take part in this, upload your photos, make comments and rate other member's photos. You can gossip about the latest styles and techniques, and maybe swap some unwanted fat quarters or UFO's!

It's totally FREE to join. It only takes a few minutes and you can sign up for our optional monthly newsletter, so that we can keep you up-to-date on what's happening in the world of patchwork. Best of all, as a member you will be able to take part in our competitions and have the chance to win some great stuff!

This month one lucky new member will win a Lightcraft Mini Flexible Magnifier Table Lamp. Sign up before 31st August for a chance to win.

Over here at Popular Patchwork we take our members privacy seriously, so we won't pass on your details to other companies without your permission – and we won't send you spam either.
