The Student Commons is your doorway to our discussion forums and the place to find announcements of special exhibits, events or contests.
In the Student Lounge, you can post messages to other visitors. Introduce yourself and join right in. You do not have to be a Quilt U student. Talk with your friends, ask questions on quilting or related issues like "what sewing machine should I buy?" You may leave announcements about events, but please do not post commercial messages.
Product Reviews allows to students to post reviews or questions about quilt-related products. Guidelines are on the opening page.
Book Reviews gives you a chance to help others decide which new books they should add to their library. If you are the first to write about a book, include the title, author, publisher, number of pages and price marked by the publisher. Multiple reviews are welcome!
