    I'm glad you stood up to such bigotry .... and I am so glad there is more than one way to accomplish a feat. I wish I had your chutzpa. Yeah!
    Make it a scrappy happy day!

    Sometimes it's easy to think one way is the only way. Glad you found what is working for you and that you had no problem stating such. Good job not letting the sales person get to you. She should have been rejoicing that you wanted to make purchases and enjoy making more quilts. Way to go for not giving in. Ofcourse for every method there's a reason why to do it and why not.

    I am thrilled you had the confidence to stand up to the police, sounds like she was "pulling you over" without probable cause.

    What is wrong with people? I cannot imagine being so self assured that I would critisize someone else and what they do!

    You handled the situation well. I bet she is going to feel like a real turkey when she gets around to Googling Sharon Schamber. I would so pay to be a fly on her wall when that happened!

    When Thomas Edison invented the light bulb, he tried over 2000 experiments before he got it to work. A young reporter asked him how it felt to fail so many times. He said, "I never failed once. I invented the light bulb. It just happened to be a 2000 step process."

    I really think this why so many LQS go out of business, they don't encourage you, they often belittle and insult the customers!

    I'm glad you put the sour-pussed, uppity, no-it-all broad in her place.

    it's amazing how some people are so set in their ways that they can't believe anyone else would do it differently... like glueing in place of sewing (and some people do liquid stitch)... wow... I'm so glad you stood up for yourself, she needed to wake up! lol
    I quilt for my sanity!
