    Good example of why people ought to be glad the CC company calls!

    Hello, Taffy! We really are a friendly group, but it is a massive sized group also. Like someone else said , post a thread that catches people's attention or a picture and you'll get great feedback

    Yes, mine does, but I still have the $5,573 charge posted on my bill, because it takes a month or two to get it off. In the meantime, it looks like I'm a slackard because I am not paying my bill for the tickets to Argentina. They called me within minutes of the transaction, but it is still on my bill.

    Hi Taffy! We can't post a "hi" to you if we don't know you exist. You have only posted 8 comments, so sadly you got lost in the shuffle. You have to pipe up, or you will just slip past us. We are a very gregarious bunch, and hopefully you will take about half of what we say seriously.

    As a result of posting at least our state, we have formed a group of QB members here in the upstate of South Carolina. So far there are six (6) of us in the group. We've gotten together for lunch a couple of times, and met at my house one time, then Some of us are going to Mary Jo's Friday together. It's been real neat to get together. One girl has been willing to drive two hours to meet with us. So thank you for putting SC or upstate SC on your profile. Margie

Since I am only there part time and it is sometimes difficult for me to get out because I have Parkinson disease, I would like to find people who could come over and sew for the day. I have friends in my FL neighborhood who get together about every 2 weeks and sew for the day. Thgroup changes as some can't come but we have a good time.
    Jane, what part of Tenness do you spend the summers in?

    Remember when you were the "shy" kid in class and never raised your hand? Then your mom and dad got your report card and it said, "does not participate in class activities"? And your parents wanted to know why? Well, I was one of those kids. Then I grew up and got married, and moved to a new city, a very large city Detroit. I lived in an apartment and when my DH was at work, I cried because I didn't know anyone. Then one day I saw a lady across the way have a new sewing machine delivered. So I bucked up and went across the way and knocked on her door. She was so pleased to know there was someone else who sewed in the apartment complex. We actually became slight friends, even though she was much older than me. I decided then that shy didn't work in this world. So after that I forced myself to become friends with strangers. Here we are on the QB and I have made friends from all over the world. My DD thinks I "have no life". She has no clue. If I have a question about something, I can ask my friends here, and always get an answer, usually the right answer. So, we are not mind readers....speak up and you will be spoken to. Probably more than you wanted.

    *LOL* I hadn't googled my handle for quite awhile. I counted at least four others using the same one by the time I got to page ten.

    The last time I googled my handle a couple of years ago,I was a busy poster: I was male and lived in Germany. Now I see that I am a female and living in Germany.

    Good trick, that!
