Ladies and Tim,

Incidentally, where is Tim? Has anyone seen or heard from him?

Very kind words have been spoken here about "we" quilters, but don't you find this with all quilters, not just those of us here, regardless if in the fabric shops or at quilt shows? We are genuinely good folks who are ready and eager to help others. I have often told newbies to find a guild as this is where the good people are and those willing and eager to teach, lead and solve problems.

We have this common bond and are instant "sisters" or "brother(s)" and behave as we have known each other for a long time and I guess, we genuinely have. We speak the same language. Agreed?

Are there any out there from Central PA who would like to meet for lunch?

I love this group and no one will ever be a police person.......right? right? :lol:
dunno ... they invited me for an interview. depends on how good the money is.

might be kinda kewl to come around here in QP uniform. I could get PAID to be ignored. i used to have to let my son do that for free.

I agree with everyone. I'm a new quilter and no one in my family quilts so I really appreciate the fact that everyone here is so friendly and helpful. I work full time and most of the quilt guilds around here meet during the week so I can't join them. Therefore I really appreciate all of the friendly people here who help me. Keep up the good work girls and Tim. :)

Wehad a small group through my church once upon a time. We met once or twice a month and it was mostly show and tell. The quilts wnt to Birth Choice and the Christian life home (unmarried mothers home. Well another lady joined. then things changed. She said she didn't have time to come and just visit. So we drugmachines up to the church. then she decided we needed to meet twice a month. So we met twice a month. then it got to where I was quilting withe 3 people----me, myself and I. No one else was showing up. When I called each person, they had all decided that it got to be too much. When I contacted the new person, she said that she couldn't come anymore because her boss (she worked at a fabric store) had organized a group and she was going over there.

I guess my point is that this group is very warm and welcoming. No one tries to bully or police us, other than to ask us to be polite and not vulgar (just common courtesy) Everyone is always willing o help and encourage each other--no criticism, just support. I hestitated to join because I was afraid it would be like the group at the church. Everyone was in awe of this lady because she worked a a fabric store in town. They figured she must be something special. But everyone here realizes that we are all united in our love of qulting and all share our joys and sympathize in our not so perfect endeavors . And I appreciate all of you I have a new enthusiasm for quilting and have made some wonderful friends besides. Who could ask for anything more? Except maybe lots of money, good looking men and chocolate :!: :D :D :D

Sounds like a dream job to me! Let me know when you are ready to expand the force. I am ready to sign up. I have plenty of previous experience being ignored -- I have 2 sons that I can't even bribe any longer. I remember the good old days when all it took was a promise of a Hot Wheels car to get them to Wal-Mart with me.... sigh
