    LaurieJo if you sign up for 2 sets the 5 fqs can be the same 5 different ones in each set, or you can have 10 different fabrics and send any 5 to each of your partners. If you love them all you can get 10 different 1/2 yard cuts and make fqs from them and keep one of each and then put 5 in each package.

    The 5 different are so a recipient gets 5 different ones in their set, but their set can be the same 5 your 2nd partner gets too. Sometimes I have to get a yard, and make 2 fqs and still have some for me too.

    As it works out for me--this swap does not keep my stach at its present level, I almost always have to ger some to keep too. I'm not complaining about it either. And I like that I get fabrics that I might not be able to get locally or that I might not have picked out.

    Well that is kinda what I was thinking. But if I buy 5 full yards I would have 5 half yards and 10 fat quarters when the swap is done. Decisions, decisions decisions . . .

I asked about the quality and value of Gee's Bend Quilters. Her nose went in the air and she turned and started talking to another person treating me as if I was not there ..... for the rest of the evening. She made sure I was also snubbed by others. Me being me did not walk away and acted as if I enjoyed the gathering. But today it stings and I will give none of those involved the time of day (or support for any of their activities) for a long, long time.
    Mary,
    This just makes me angry!! And sad...sad that people like that give other people who are in awesome guilds a bad name! We have 2 quilt shops in the town close to me...I actually had visited the first 2, and got much the same treatment you did...whether it was my own perception or what I felt like they thought I wasn't "rich" enough for them...I happened upon the 3rd shop by accident..and I love it! Our lil group that meets there is pretty small...but we always welcome anyone who wants to come in! The owner of the shop is just a dear lady...There are a few of us that she actually tells us to cut our own fabric...lol..and if there is a particular fabric we are wanting she offers to let us look for it from the places she orders, and she will order it in! So, maybe there will be a different group in your future! Don't let a couple of rude people ruin things for you! I always say that when someone is rude and belittling it is because they don't feel good about themselves and are trying to tear someone else down...but it sure is hard to be in a group of people that you feel don't want you there...like mean girls in high school...
    Regards,
    Kif
