    I belonged to one but finally gave it up. I just didn't feel comfortable there. If you dread going, don't. Life is too short to do things you don't enjoy.

    Don't force yourself to do something that you do not enjoy. Stress takes years away from your life and life is way to short to waste even a minute of it.

    Just out of curiosity - would it help if I made a name tag & under my name I put my quilting interests?

    (not trying to hijack this thread; I just want a better experience out of the next quilt guild)

    so are you going to be 50 this year?
    I am...so I am with you on this!
    When I turned 50 I decided that I was going to say what I think. I was tired of keeping quiet. (This applies to my family of 10 siblings) If they don't like it that is their problem. It seems I had to get mad before they paid attention. They have been dealing with it now for 13 years.
    I was a committee chair in 2 guilds. They were board positions. Sometimes they didn't like it when I asked why or disagreed. I've cut back on my commitments. I needed more time for me.

    I don't belong to a guild, doesn't fit into work schedule. But I loved going to a monthly strip poker night at LQS. We had lots of fun & made alot of useful items. The shop closed due to the economy. I'd love to do strip poker again. So much fun.

    Do you like it?

    I belong to several, but most of them are out of town. Even out of state...

    The one here in town I just dread going to...tonight is guild night and I just do not feel like going...though I do have obligations to being there!

    How sad is that?
    Unfortunately all the guilds in the area have waiting lists so no.
