    Oh Dunster, I have seen those clips online too. Can you believe what people will wear in public, kind of scary. But it does give us a good laugh. Since retiring I don't think I have even worn a skirt or dress, only jeans at first, gained some weight and now corduroy pants to go out and sweats in the house. As for fixing hair and makeup when I am at home, out of the question. Takes up too much precious time that can be spent sewing or being on the quilting board.

Sometimes I do change clothes to go to the Walmart, but that's because I'm still in my pajamas and Walmart frowns on that. (Well, maybe not. I've seen pictures online of some of those Walmart shoppers. Not pretty.)

    Our guild is "anything goes". I have never given it any thought before this post on appropriate dress for guild meetings. Comfort is the important thing for us. Any where from dress clothes to sweats. I coach basketball, so I have come from practice in sweats to meetings, and no one has said anything about it. I usually come from work, unless it is summer, and never feel over dressed. We are just glad people are there and want them to feel comfortable no matter what they wear.

    I like to dress casual sometimes( no jeans) or smart on another day. I would nearly always wear a skirt. Trousers are for walking in, cold and uncomfortable. I have some bright trendy long skirts I wear either with low heels or high.
    As loNg as people are polite and the conversation is about quilting heck come in what ever makes you happy.

    I agree with Scissor Queen our older members are usually dressed in nice slacks, top and jewelry while the younger members wear jeans and Tee Shirts. I wear jeans and a top (not that I am young) as now that I am retired I enjoy not getting dressed to the hilt!!

    This is pretty much the same for our guild. Everyone looks age appropriately nice. Not dressed up, but casual. Many will wear their latest creations. Embroidered tops, quilted jackets, appliqued t-shirts, etc.. Some do come from work, but being a rural area, we are not in business suits. I don't think anyone really cares. It is about the sharing and sisterhood.

    Most everyone in our guild dresses very casual. In the summer some even wear shorts.

    If I happen to have worked at the shop that day, I wear my work clothes (business casual). If I had the day off, I wear jeans and a casual top. We have a mixed range of dress at our meetings.

    I dress according to the guild. I tend to be pretty casual at my local guild ...sans make-up...but i step it up at the larger guild that is out of town. Quilters are pretty casual IMHO and experience.
