Thread: Has quilting made you more or less of a loner?

    I have found the opposite. I belong to a quilting guild which has quilt weekends (going to one this weekend) plus lots of other gatherings. I also go to lots of classes and have a small group of friends and we meet at each others house once a fortnight. I go every second Wednesday to a quilt day at a local church plus belong to a monthly group which meets every Saturday.

    I love quilting!!! I find I am happy when I am quilting, but some of the best friends I have are because of my love for quilting... I am highly involved in our quilt club, and because of it I'm in a group of ladies who go on quilt retreats, get together for lunch once a month, and go on shop hops. Yes, these friends were made because I love quilting, but the friendships we have goes so much deeper.
    Quilting can make you happy at home alone or with friends... Isn't it wonderful!

    Go for it at $2.00 a yard. Some may not be the best material but can be used on small projects, and keep the better quality for projects that will get more ware.

    Good luck!

    I am a teacher too and I feel the same way. Can we all stop feeling guilty for being loners?

    No reason to feel guilty. Just look how many of us there are - a lot of like minds who just happen to be quilters.

    I am sorry about your sister, my sister and I are very close, both quilt and sew. She works, I'm retired (6 yrs older than sis). I suffer an anxiety disorder and have always been a bit of a loner, although I was able to work and bring up my kids normally. It has always been a strain for me to socialise or even talk on the phone. I'm lucky my famiy and friends keep in touch and visit me, and grandkids always her and keep my mind young. I tried quilting groups but couldn't cope. I'm fine in familiar territory, but out of my comfort zone I feel very inadequate, even on this board I feel like I'm butting in sometimes, so I don't reply to a lot of things I'd like to. but I love it and love reading other members messages, and I am learning so much, so if you all don't mind keep I'll keep coming back. Maybe one day will have courage to "show & tell". Its a great Board, Luv U all, Jen
