Oh, that was so unkind, and so unthinking. You must be a great actress. I'm not sure I could have hid my feelings so well, and acted normal, after reading that card. Obviously, it's not your sewing that prevents you from selling your quilts. It's your choice not to sell your quilts. Big difference!! I agree, since you are still upset about it, I think you should have a kind talk with all 4 friends present, and just be honest and up front about why the remark hurt you so much, and then let them be understanding. And if they're not understanding, maybe you need new friends!
