    Hi, There has got to be more than 1 guild, shop around. If your new to quilting and can't find another guild try to stick it out awhile because it's a great place to pick up tips and learn new things. Good luck.

    :( I once had a lady get very mad at me, because I told her I wasn't interested in joining her guild. I don't have time for that. I wouldn't go if it's not meeting your needs. There are lots of guilds out there, I bet you can find one that is more of what your looking for. Check out the library,can you tell my Mother is a Librarian. LOL. They always seem to know where everyone is meeting and what kind of group they are.

    Is it all of them or just a "few", you know the "chosen few" who think they know it all? Don't let a "few" make that decision for you. I think a guild is great, especially for new comers and the younger generation. I think that it's great to have the older crowd mixed in with the young so that they "can" introduce you to the "traditional" quilts. However....it is the younger group who should have the priviledge of introducing the newer, modern type quilts and styles. I, myself, I love traditional but I do mix in modern methods and quicker methods to achieve my goal. Even though I'm not the kind of person who would make a new wave type modern quilt, I love to get to see them, I can still enjoy them visually and even learn from them. I love the individuality of a quilting group! If we all made the same quilts, with the same material, same patterns and same techniques, well....I guess I'd have to go fishing instead!

    I love my guild, but there are snobs everywhere in this world. Is it just one or two that way or most of the guild.
    If just a few, it would be worth staying. If most of them to the point of discomfort, I would leave. Get with other quilter's who are less snobby.

    I am so blessed. Nearly everyone in my guild is very douwn-to-earth, and willing to help others out. We all do different forms of quilting, but we don't put each other down. They are so encourageing, and quite of few of these ladies are very well to do. I have a much better appreciation for my group now, after reading some of the replies.
    We have a lot of fun, and I hate to miss a single meeting. I have been in it for 2 years now, and I do the newsletter now. Wish everyone could have one as super as this one.

    Loretta, maybe it's time to start a guild of your own. Through the ladies of your church.......through some of the quilt shops......even if only meet once a month, you could take turns meeting in homes. Surely you aren't the only one in your area that quilts. Take an ad in the newspaper, looking for quilters.

    Hugs,
    Sharon
