RWCS Joins Pinterest

Red Wing, MN – The Red Wing Collectors Society announces they have joined Pinterest.

Pinterest,, is a web base tool for collecting and organizing things using a virtual pin board. Users can share their images and also re-pin images from other users to their board.

The Red Wing Collectors Society joined Pinterest to show the organization’s events, collections, and member activities in a different visual way. It also gives the RWCS a way to connect with potential members through other Pinterest users’ pins.

RWCS member Laura Beall, RWCS Convention Display Chair, worked with executive director Stacy Wegner to start the RWPottery Pinterest board and within moments people were connecting with the RWCS.

“This is a great way to show your collecting interest virtually without even making a Red Wing purchase. It gives people a way to collect and connect even when their lifestyle may not support physically owning Red Wing,” said Beall.

“We hope that by joining the Pinterest community casual collectors of Red Wing will be able to connect with the organization and consider being an online community collector and member,” said Wegner.

The RWCS has been exploring an eMembership for members. Pinterest is a great way to find out how receptive an online membership would be and discover what potential members may be looking for in internet based membership benefits, and how these benefits may differ from current membership benefits. The organization plans to launch an eMembership in time for their Annual Convention, Diggin’ Red Wing, slated for July 11-13, 2013 in Red Wing MN.
