We are always hopping with events, so hold on tight! Here are the current events going on at Stitchin’ Heaven:
New Year’s Eve 2011 Twitter Party
We have hosted and been a part of a couple of Twitter Parties this year and just can’t resist! We thought that there couldn’t be a better way to bring in the New Year, than with each other and with tons of really great prizes from some really great sponsors! So, here’s what you need to do to party!
Who: YOU & Some really great Sponsors
What: New Year’s Eve 2011 Twitter Party
When: December 31, 2011 - 10pm-12:30am CST
Party : #SHPARTY
Topic: Out with a Bang!
How: New to twitter? It’s easy and it’s free! Just follow the instructions below:
1. Get a Twitter account. You can sign up for free at www.twitter.com
2. Go to www.tweetchat.com (or the platform of your choice if you have another you prefer)
3. Enter SHPARTY next to the hashtag (#) at the top of the screen. Once you do that all conversations and party goers for our party will show up in a list just below the top of the page.
4. Sign into Twitter if you aren’t already. You will be prompted to allow or deny the app to access your account. Click “allow”
5. You will be redirected to the party page where you will only see conversations for #SHPARTY partyers.
6. Use the text box to write your messages. No need to put #SHPARTY in each post because Tweetchat does that for you.
7. Party! We will post messages to the party and you respond. You’ll see the conversation roll. You may want to set the speed of messages, either slower to keep up or faster to get your messages almost as soon as they post without the delay. However you want, it’s your party! You can find how to set the speed right under your message box.
