Mark has made that last part – community – easy with the creation of the Pickle Posse. The Posse is named after Pickle Road – the location of Mark’s actual home and studio and is made up of quilters from all over the world who belong to the Yahoo group. It is the place to socialize with other fun, interesting, and open-minded quilters and crafters.
Mark said that people should write to him and say hello. He is open to input from any quilter or crafter on ideas for things to cover in the magazine. Mark said that quilting is the hobby of the masses. We are not solving world problems – it’s not elitist – anyone can do it or teach it. And he is willing to help anyone who wants to take part.

The genius of MLQH is that it speaks to the whole woman. We all love some celeb gossip. We all have to eat (and drink!), we all have relationships and sex lives and we all want to advance our art, learn new things, and share a sense of community with other readers.
Join the Posse and express yourself! Get in on product tests and other fun. You can receive messages individually (which will quickly result in e-mail overload as the group gets about 6000 e-mails per month!), in digest format (which means you will get all the messages for that day in one giant e-mail), or if the volume of mail is just too much for you, you can go “no mail” and read messages at your convenience directly on the website.

Because we are so wired these days, a backup laptop computer should be considered part of your essential survival gear just as much as a 3 day supply of food and extra water. You can either choose to use your existing laptop or buy an used one specifically for use in the event of an emergency.
