    I'm in a quilt group that started back in the 80's. The group came together by way of a quilt shop called the Cotton Patch. Only 2 of the 12 are original members. We have tried to come up with a "great" name for years but have not been able to find just the right one. Secretly we call ourselves the dessert club because we always serve a dessert when we host the meeting. Can you help by giving some ideas for a name. We want something to do with quilting, sewing, fabric and or friends. We all live somewhat close to the Mississippi and St. Croix Rivers. Some names that have been suggested are :
    In Stitches
    Sew What Quilter
    River Heights Quilter
    Fabric Friends and a few others. Please help us come up with something.
    Thanks,
    Minnisewta Pam

    Our little Bee (six) members just named ourselves the 'Full Bobbins Bee'. Not my suggestion, but it's okay.
    My postal lady is in with a group of ladies that sew, not just quilters. They call themselves the 'Needle Nuts'.

    I'm in a bee that has 8 members and we are the Knotty Quilters. That name fits us in so many ways!

    One of our Knotty Quilters bee members told her elderly aunt what we named our group and she was apalled! She knows most of us and just couldn't understand why we all thought we are "naughty" girls. When my friend explained how the group name was spelled and that it was a pun, her aunt was still indignant, but relented that it wasn't such a bad name after all.
