    I wondered why more of the members do not come to chat... It is a nice group and we share so much...great place to start your day or take a little break
    Hope to see more there soon

    My puter is so slow (dial-up) that by the time my reply shows up the subject has changed completely.

    Oh that is too bad. I have noticed many are very slow to respond...maybe that is the reason

    When I do get on the computer I'm trying to read all the post since the last time I logged on and maybe answer a few.
    I've never used it for just chit-chat.

    Sue, I remember how much fun it was when I first tried chat, and you were one who made me welcome. I just can't type fast enough, I'd get to laughing so hard here at my PC because my words came out so mixed up. everyone was so kind and helpful, just sdaid go ahead, they would figure it out .For those of you who havern't tried chat, try it, it's a blast.And thank you Sue,for my fun experience!

    Hmmm ... never thought of it. I honestly didn't realize it was there. Might have to check that out sometime soon.

    You may regret this :)

    oh! Another reason to stay longer on this board - will have to try this soon, I am already addicted - sometimes when I stay for a few it seems I am constantly logging back on to see what's new!

    Well, lets see. I just went there. I asked a question. It took 5 minutes for anyone to acknowlege my presence. The chat conversation was geared around dress codes of the past and the lack of them now. Thank goodness I had a landscaper show up and needed a tour of the property where I live. I'm not saying it was bad, just that it seemed like another huge waste of my time.

    The conversations seemed very personal(as in like you would talk to someone about what's going on at your house, or your folks or kids or something) and not really conducive to others jumping in with anything pertinent. So I would rather look at pictures of others' work and comment.

    Oh sorry.. It is often quilt related but also like a quilting bee..friendly chit chat.....nice for a little break..often just interesting to learn about people and other parts of the country...and the world. But like all things....it is not of interest to everyone
    Maybe try another time

    I tried it once or twice, but, just couldn't keep up! I felt overwhelmed by all the comments - nothing negative at all, but, it hurt my brain!!!!!

    I was in the room at the time you came in. And it didn't take five minuts for us to answer. Your questoin was, was the site running slow. We said hello to every person who popped in when we seen them. We didn't see you till you posted the questoin about it being slow.

    You were more than welcome to talk about what every you wanted to talk about. It was only me and another person in the room at the time and we talked about what every.

    I'm sorry you felt like you weren't seen. But there have been times when I post things and it didn't show up till a while later or not show up at all. so please don't hold the chat rooms quirks against those of us who hang out in the chat room.

    My reason for staying out of the chat room--I purely can't spare the time!! So, if I never look, I never know what I am missing!! And I know, there are lots of great things shared. piecefully, the old one

    I've never gone because ... well, this will sound ridiculous perhaps ...but I thought it might be a little too much of a clique and that I'd be an unwelcome outsider.

    I have been on the chat room several times. I was greeted as soon as I arrived and everyone was really gracious and friendly. Even "met" some people that live very very close, like a couple of blocks away. Try it, you'll like it!
