    Personally, I wish they would do away with/or change this requirement for selling stuff here. Especially just for the reason you expressed.

    It would be much better if they could change the rule to "membership for 30 days in order to sell" or something to that effect. JMHO

    I agree. IMHO this requirement encourages posting in order to become a regular rather than posting to answer someone's question or contribut to a thread. I'll never be a regular-I just don't have time to do much more than skim and look at the beautiful pictures.

    It is, only it's 90 days - not 30, and I was told I can't even give stuff away.

    As far as I know, one can BUY or REQUEST TO BUY or GIVE AWAY/DONATE at any time.

    You can contact PatriceJ via PM or you can send her an e-mail to the following address:

    [email protected]

    for clarification of that question or any other questions you may have about policy and/or procedures.


    The guidelines for the donations and pif section are in this post:

    sometimes rules are put into place to limit the people who sign up just to use this site as free advertising or to unload something or just ask for fabric to make a quilt. We have had people, in the past, try to scam...by selling a high end machine at way lower than you could get it anywhere.
    Please bear with it... :D

    I'm personally glad they did it. Plus, they limit how much you can sell. That is also good because it seems like a lot of people have a nice little business on the side, buying at sale prices on places like the 2.50-2.98-3.98/yard for quilt shop fabric (as mentioned in today's posts) and sell at $4-6/yard-- "Quilt shop quality" fabric. Hmmm. It seemed like a lot more like businesses doing 'unofficial' business than people selling their own personal stash as in a yard sale. The gov't limits people to 3-4 yard sales a year (I think) before you get tagged as having a business and needing to report/pay taxes, etc. So, when people here are constantly destashing...(and then buying more), it seems like it is more or less an unofficial business and not just a crafter needing to unload her personal stash.

    So, I do like the fact that they limited how much people could sell. I know it wasn't popular, but I think it made it a better site. There were some people who it seemed, only came to QB in order to sell something--not really interact. Ebay, Etsy, etc. are great for that...

    I lost my "regular status" while I was away on vacation. Wish I could have kept up but will just have to keep busy until I get it back.

    Something like this?

    "OMG! I just stuck myself with a pin! Has this ever happened to anyone else?!"

    I'm not a "regular" yet and I don't mind it at all. It takes a little while to get used to where everything is and where it should be. Meanwhile I've bought a few things, learned a lot of things and been able to help out a new quilter a few times.

    Looking forward to being regular....

    What I did was just go to the pictures and admire the quilts I liked....doesn't take long to post 20 times if you look at quilts people made and like them and say so. (and I never sell...though I've been tempted to give away scraps...)

    I have to agree with you on that. And, if someone is providing a quality product at a reasonable price what is wrong with how much of it they sell. Since when is it wrong to be productive? I would much rather see that than see people going on wellfare.

    The rules are good but most of the time I read responses that say the same thing I was going to post so why repeat and repeat.

    But your status says you are a regular here. I thought if you were a regular, you can post for sale fabrics.
