    I'm probably stepping out of my bounds here...I dont' belong to a guild (other than message boards...they are my guilds!)

    but what exactly happened....I think you need to explain a little better than you did...details?

    I don't believe I've ever been to a guild meeting where they applauded certain quilters while showing outward disapproval of others. That just seems so odd to me. I'm honestly having a hard time trying to imagine that. As "clique-y" as my guild had gotten from time to time, they've always supported anyone who was willing to show their work. How sad for the members of your guild, Hook.

    Maybe an artists' guild or group?

    You can always show off your quilts here in the pictures forum!

    How awful! It almost sounds like junior high. It is hard to imagine anyone being so closeminded that they don't accept a newbie's ideas and opinions. IT sounds like the guild your in rarely gets newbies or cannot keep them. I hate this for you! Is there any other guild you can join?

    Go back!! Kill then with kindness! Smile, smile and greet everyone whether anyone responds or not. And when you observe whispers after showing your ideas, politely ask if there is some they would like to share with you and the others present. This response will put them on notice that you "see" their whispers. Tell them you are there to learn and can take their criticisms/suggestions as well as praises.

    Good luck.
