Homemade Frontier – The Annual General Meeting

Once upon a time Homemade Frontier was just another idea that I thought up, a glimmer in my eye. Then I met Sue at BlogHer ’11 and a plan was formed.

Seven months later, after many skype calls and emails, Homemade Frontier launched. While we’ve only been blogging here for five months I consider the BlogHer conference weekend the real Homemade Frontier anniversary.

Last week Sue and I met in New York City for BlogHer ’12 and held our 2nd annual Homemade Frontier think tank.

This picture is not of the think tank meeting. You might call this the morning after picture. We were so busy thinking we didn’t take a picture until a few days later.

We’ve got some new ideas up our sleeves and we learned some new tricks at BlogHer ’12. But we’d like to ask all you lovely readers to help celebrate our renewed excitement for Homemade Frontier.

What are your ideas? What would you like to see more of here? Do you have a story to share about your homemade experience? We would love to have some guest posts and share your expertise.

I know quilting has been highly requested and I will get to it, promise. Once we are settled in the new house and my sewing machine has a new home. And I am working on finishing up a sock so we can get to the heel lesson.

  1. I just want to say I love your blog and all of its homemade crunchy goodness. I may not comment everyday but I’m here and I’m reading. I believe in your philosophy and do many of the things you post. One day when my hands are not as busy I plan to do the knitting/sewing/and crocheting

  2. Oops, new phone… Published too soon!!
    Yes I want to try it all! One day:)
    Keep up the good work, love ya!

  3. I was not able to make it to the Blogher 12 because of my pregnancy, but one of my my very good friend was there, and she kept me posted about it. She was sharing the live event videos from her iPad. I think the one thing that I learned was the importance of Vlogging. and once I am little free wit the newborn I will seriously devote some time for it. it looks like that it is going to have a great value in the future as Google just loves videos!

    • There was a 2 part vlogging boot camp that really interested me but it fell at the same time as a few other things I was interested. Always the way. Hope your pregnancy is going well.

  4. I can’t wait to see what is in store for round 2!
