The development of online communities are a common way for textile enthusiasts to connect. Blogs, discussion lists, online stores, and even online competitions bring quilters and designers together. 

Ellen Rushman and Madeleine Roberg say about their online presence:

“Combining our love of fabric with our fascination of the online universe, we decided to launch a competition.  Repeat. A way to introduce unique designers to the quilting world."

“We are looking at this competition as a way to bring lots of people together.  People meetin people, meetin people, meetin people…” Courtesy The Printed Bolt
