    Question Why or how did you choose your screen name? What does it mean?

    ILoveToQuilt is my email address. Can't have too many screen names as I'd get confused as to which one to use on what board. Therefore I use my email address. Pretty self explanatory - I Love To Quilt!

    When I joined the board, I was having a hard time getting into my sewing room to quilt. Not because it was too full !! I was too busy with other things. But then I realized that I have choices and my choice is to quilt so I started quilting again all the time. So I guess my name helped me realize what I want to do most in the world.

    When I signed up it was spur of the moment - I was at work and wanted to get it done without getting caught so was in a hurry , wanted something I could remember so my name it was

    I use DogHouseMom for quite a few of my dog related activities as I used to be very active in showing dogs. I am the "mom" in a house full of dogs ... although now I am down to 1 dog and am no longer breeding or showing dogs.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I wanted to be "Sew Silly" but someone else already had that one! I live in Sonoma county, CA - I used to live here years ago and moved away for 8 years and missed it terribly the whole time I was gone. I have recently returned and I love this area so much, so "Sewnoma" seemed like a good pick for me.

    this topic was discussed not too long ago and it's a fun one! My name was given to me by my dearest friend and I called her Julieopolus. We were looking to up our class status, I guess.

    Neesie is my nickname, so I figured it'd be easy for me to remember.

    my name is Nancy and I'm Nana to my DGKs, so Nan is part of both. It's not my nickname - I never had a nickname. The Quiltn part is what I'm doing most

    Some other ladies and I started a group called the Joysewers at our church to do charity sewing and quilting. We were doing some things for another country and the missionary we were in contact with said we should call ourselves the Joysewers so then I changed my name to Joysewer.

    I used to be a living history re-enactor. Bisbetica is the Italian word for "shrew." It fits, trust me

    I was called Neecy when I was little- only my siblings refer to me as that now.

    Mine is part of my e-mail. Like others too many screen names would only confuse me.

    Thats basically the same with me. When I started working for the IT department 11yrs ago they used your last name and first initials and to make it simple and easy for me I've just kept it that way. I may forget a password but if I know the username I can have them send me the password if needed. I didn't know at the time that as long as you don't "log" out of here you don't have to sign in each time or I might have gotten more creative. Who knows, maybe not.

    Hubby says, "all she does is sew and sew". My nickname is Kat , short for Kathy, so I made it katsewnsew.
