Are you on Twitter? If so, do you know about Pattern Hour?
Pattern Hour was started a few weeks ago by Gail Myerscough, who tweets as @patternhour for it.
It runs for an hour between 8pm and 9pm every Thursday evening, and is an opportunity for surface pattern designers and illustrators to connect and promote their work.
If you're a designer, then you might like to join in - meet other designers, show off your latest, best or old designs and see what other people are producing. Don't forget to use the hashtag! It's #patternhour - you'd never have guessed, would you?!
