    I am so blessed. Nearly everyone in my guild is very douwn-to-earth, and willing to help others out. We all do different forms of quilting, but we don't put each other down. They are so encourageing, and quite of few of these ladies are very well to do. I have a much better appreciation for my group now, after reading some of the replies.
    We have a lot of fun, and I hate to miss a single meeting. I have been in it for 2 years now, and I do the newsletter now. Wish everyone could have one as super as this one.

    Loretta, maybe it's time to start a guild of your own. Through the ladies of your church.......through some of the quilt shops......even if only meet once a month, you could take turns meeting in homes. Surely you aren't the only one in your area that quilts. Take an ad in the newspaper, looking for quilters.

    Hugs,
    Sharon

    Wher in Texas do u livE? I am in San antonio and just belong to my church group quilting friends. We just meet and have fun. I have heard that they can be clickish and rude sometimes. Give it 1 more try if not leave and try to form a bee of your own Bebe

    Maybe someone should tell them the high school called and they want their robes back... ;)

    We don't have a guild locally, there are a few select ladies who get together in groups and have quilting evenings and quilting retreats on weekends. I've never gone to any simply because I don't/ won't buy into that click scene....guess that makes me a solitary quilter... lol :)

    :roll: This seems to be a Huge Problem with guilds. My problem with it is I was given begin blocks only Now I find out they were Not and I was doing Intermediate quilt blocks all along, so now I have skipped and pulled my hair out and done these things to find myself looking at patterns that I began on marked Intermediate so Now I mean if I wasn't so inventful myself and was able to figure it out, they even had the wrong measurements for the pieces to be a end up block size then I hear someone say they cut them big in the first place, Maybe you just have to out Fox the Fox or the quilt guild!!!!

    Thought I'd put in a few cents worth, my guild has been a source of sorry and pain at one point I was ready to jump in a Lake and I can't swim over some quilt Guru being critical and rude over my quilt. Luckily I had a talk with a few friends and family and they told me just to keep making My quilts the way I want to and no matter to what they think, after a while I did realize this was best though I have tried and done other styles now. I say Noone should make a body feel bad about their quilt Period. Quilting is for enjoyment. Ok? Anyone else???

    I would go. Something will spark some inspiration in you that you will want to try. See their show and tell and get advise from seasoned quilters. If you don't go, you will miss out on a lot of great ideas! Go with the flow, I would think their criticism would be very helpful if you take it as constructive. If it is too much to take, then don't share your stuff until you are ready to share. Be proud that your work and know that we all can improve.
