    If its Summer, most of us wear jeans or capris and t-shirt or nice blouse and sandals or running shoes, not that they've ever been run in. Living in central Texas demands comfy cotton clothing in the summer.
    Winter its jeans and a top. I have 2 fancy jackets made with lovely quilt blocks and other pieced sections.
    Some of us are in dressy casual, because they have to go to work after the guild meeting. We meet in the morning from 9:30am-noonish.

    If I had to get real fancy I would rather stay home. Anywhere my jeans and tennis shoes are not welcome I don't want to go (except church)

    I'm with you BellaBoo! I don't always feel good, but looking better sure gives you a better presentation about yourself. We have a large membership-300, and are in casual Florida, so we get a good mixture. As long as they are not sloppy anything goes, but I personally prefer makeup, heels and I'll do jeans as long as they aren't "Mommy" jeans!

    No one dresses up for our guild meetings. As some said above, coming from work, they might be in jeans and shirt, or nice casual.
    I usually wear a nice slack set, and in the Summer, capris or walk shorts. No one seems to care what others wear.

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.)
    I live in Florida so it's pretty casual, t-shirts and capris mostly. We're so busy looking at the show and tell quilts that nobody pays attention to what people are wearing. BTW I see young girls out in pjs all the time. Apparently fleece pants, t-shirt, and fuzzy slippers are appropriate for fast food restaurants, just not for my age group.

    I agree

    Finally there is someone that agrees with me that jeans are not comfortable. I asked my 45 year old daughter, with a knock out figure and thinks there are actually "dress jeans", if she felt comfortabe in them and she admitted that she did not. It is yet one more miserable thing you do to be fashionable. I am so glad I have out grown that stage of life.

    comfy casual ... jeans and shirt or sweater, sneakers or Birks. I agree that on pot luck night might be a tad dressier, but guild night is for comfort and FUN ... dress the way YOU want to, others may feel they also have to be dressier and will have a sense of relief to see someone else dressing the way they want to also.

    I'd say our guild is casual - wear whatever you want and what makes you comfortable.
