    Free Pin

    Ok now that I have your attention. I would like to know if it is possible to create a pin or something similar that would distinguish us as QB members when we are out at a quilting event. I don't know exactly how to do this, but I'm sure the creative group here could help. What do you all think?

    Sounds like a great idea. Now if someone can design it. I'm not the one to do it; I have enough trouble following a pattern.

    Great idea...I will be glad to own one...Do you have any ideas about what you would like it to be? It must be sortta easy for the newbies like me but distinctive that it is instantly recognizable.

    We had them in little league. They were called lapel pins, but I don't know to design them or purchase them. I don't even know if QB would let us to it. I have pins form different quilting organization and hops and thought it would be great if we had something to represent us.

    Never new the card existed. Maybe we could print it off and laminate it or just quilt the design to a pin

    I wonder if the shops that have %-off discounts for Guild Members would honour that?

    Won't hurt to ask. The worst they could do is say no

    At the Quilt Festivals and Markets there is a booth that sells pins for different guilds, quilt stores etc. They can make your pins to your requirements for what ever you need. Don't know the price but you could check with them. Think they are called The Pin Peddlers.

    Some members have said they've gotten guild discounts after showing the card, yes.

    I would love to have a pin. I was at the Cincinnati show today and kept wondering if anyone was a QB member.

    I think a large purple "Q" with a pretty BEE on the end of it would be darling!

    OR why not use the block on the guild card, but leave the center muslin so we write our name it?

    I'm all the time asking people I see in quilt shops if they belong to the board. I then explain what it is and give them the web site. Would be nice to be able to recognize with a lapel pin or something.

    I printed off my 'membership' card and am going to try to make a block from the picturer. Shouldn't be too hard. If I can accomplish that, then I should be able to reduce the size down to something smaller to put on our blouses. Might be able to post the pattern (of sorths, anyway) I'll keep everyone informed - but I am leaving for a quilt show in Slidell, LA on Wednesday, so this will be put on hold until next week when I return. Have 3 quilts entered, hope I come home with a 'warm fuzzy' from one of them!!

    It would be nice to have a lapel pin. Most people I mention the QB to aren't members and then when I try to explain it to them, their next comment is, 'oh, I don't need anymore computer stuff'. I just shrug my shoulders and realize they just don't know what they are missing. LOL

    Didn't know about the card That would have been so much easier to print off and wear to the quilt show. I ended up making a tag I wore around my neck. Didn't see any one else though. And I know with my eyesight I wouldn't see a lapel pin. lol But it is a great idea. I use to have a bunch of pins but they were dumped at a thrift store when I moved years ago ..
