My first Periscope video

Hi friends, When I first heard of Periscope I wasn't really sure if it was just another social media app I needed in my life....I totally changed my mind after seeing what you could do with it.

I think it will be a game changer in how we, as crafters and quilters share information in real time. I experimented with my first periscope video today and after the nervousness wore off I had a blast. Having the ability to answer your questions live was so amazing! You asked things I didn't think to include in the steps, and if you teach or are thinking about teaching in a group setting I think its the perfect way to test out your lesson plan before hand and get automatic feedback.

Your videos are only available for 24 hours, but you have the ability to save them to your phone (if you have enough storage) or like I did to a second party app called Katch. This site automatically saves your videos in its cloud and lets you download, share via facebook & twitter or imbed the code into another website, like I am sharing here.

I am looking forward to providing some more fun tutorial and how to videos, and would love to hear what you would like to see! I will continue my series of hexie help with more info on tips and tricks for making my Modern Hexie projects and will also share some fun stuff in between.

If you download Periscope you can find me at @modernhandcraft. Hope to see you all online!
