    I have read what others here have said and agree with most...if you really want to go and can ignore her, then go on. I am a beginner and have often wished I could belong to a guild, but after reading these responses about how quilds can be, I'm glad I don't! I like the idea of meeting with a few friends or family members who just want to have fun and be creative. I would also like to say thanks to all on this board who make every effort to be so supportive, friendly and helpful!

    Hope this makes you feel better, but this is what I have figured out in my 'long' life.
    Those who intimidate, are intimidated. She is already threatened by you, to make herself feel better (and look better-she thinks)is to make you look bad. Little does she know is that she is only making herself look unbelievably horrible. And yes she is miserable, and misery loves company.
    Wonder when or if she will ever put 2 + 2 together?
    I am one of the newest of new (not even crawling) quilters. Not going to actually start yet, getting my house ready to sell, because we are having a house built.
    I have been ready this forum for 3 years now, just collecting information.
    All of you are AMAZING!! Keep sharing your work, I love it, as does others. :thumbup: :lol: :mrgreen: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    :roll: Oh My Goodness,she needs to be voted out! Unless of course no one else will do it. She is a Quilt Snob Big One. And I think maybe she's come to our sew group as well. How do we get rid of her? Anyone or anything new she's on a roll picking on them, sorry for them yet glad I've outgrown it all, I Hope.

    I agree with what the others say.
    But the best thing to do to Bigmouth is just SMILE at her.
    Don't talk to her if she talks to you, just SMILE!
    That will REALLY piss her off because she won't know if you are smiling at her because you like her, or if you are smiling because you are thinking evil thoughts.
    I'm telling you...it works everytime!
    Just SMILE at them and sooner or later, they will leave you alone

    You know what really throws someone off is start crying, just wail and say and "i thought my quilt was so nice, do the rest of you think it is as awful as she says?" Don't say anything else. OK hard to do, but wouldn't it be fun? What really does work is silence, it makes everyone uncomfortable. Maybe you could ask her to repeat what she said because you didn't hear her, then when she repeats herself just say OH and nothing else. Hope it gets better and others cozy up to you. Some people have been critical all their lives and don't even realize that they are.

    When someone continuously criticizes or finds fault, it's not you that they are finding fault with...it's themselves. This woman has an over abundance of low self esteem, and in order to build herself up, she puts others down. She obviously lacks self confidence in her own abilities or she would show her work.

    Don't let her pull you down to her level by making you question your talent.
    here here Shadow!! I was thinking the exact same thing.. She is insecure!!! If you are happy with the quilting you are doing and the patterns you are doing.. isnt' that what's important? Otherwise you wouldn't be doing it!!! If you love your work then that is all that matters!!!! I think this woman also just loves to be heard!!! geez I cant' stand people like that.. I could just choke them with some fabric.. but then I would be afraid of the wrinkles it would put in my fabric.. ahhhh close up her trap with quilters safety pins!! HA! evil arent' I!!!
