The Quilters Calendar
Posted 9 months ago by MargueritaM
The Quilters Calendar is more than just a website connecting quilt guilds with professional teachers – it’s a growing opportunity to fill a very wide gap between quilt guilds who hire teachers and teachers looking for more gigs.
The eight year old website is profitable and takes less than 2 weeks a year to maintain – if you don’t want it to grow or make more money. If you do, the tools are there and the door to opportunity is open.
The greatest assets are the completely organic 825 (and growing daily) newsletter to guilds and the downloadable PDF Directory of Quilt Teachers which guilds love.
Quilt teachers are notoriously bad at promoting themselves, they’d rather teach than mail promo material or dig for guild contacts – the site provides that service for anywhere from free to $100/year.
Guilds love to look at nicely formatted, easy-to-use info! The Directory of Quilt Teachers is page after page of bios of quilt teachers, organized by state and indexed by teaching specialty, and it’s free to guild members who sign up for the newsletter. Ads are anywhere from free to $225. Guild members love this book!
I need a new owner familiar with WordPress, who sees the potential and wants to grab it for the website and I need someone familiar with publishing to produce the PDF that the guilds are counting on. Teaching experience for guilds is a big plus so that you understand the challenges and can envision the solutions. All offers will be considered and commitment to the mission is more important to me than money. I must let my project go after spending so many years creating it and bringing it to profitability.
