    The people on this board are the absolute best!!! I have been on the giving and receiving end of many RAKs and PIFs and it brings such joy, whichever end you are on. I am always excited when I can give something here, as I know from personal experience how great it feels to receive, also. It's always a winning situation. How great is that??!!??!?

    I believe UFOs are like scraps, ferns and dust bunnies. Once you get two, they send spores out into the air and more just happen anywhere the spores meet.

    I really do think that most quilters are the most loving, most generous souls on the face of the earth! A few won't share a hint or anything, but most of us will share our knowledge willingly. Welcome aboard!

    I have been the recipient of several RAKs from other quilters. It is amazing how good it feels to pay them forward.

    There is a group of people on this board who are regulars in the monthly
    secret pal swaps who have shared their addresses and are ALWAYS sending
    out RAK's to other who are on the list.

    Of course the list in NOT published anywhere so the addresses are only shared
    with those who wish to share with others on the list. We have about 50 RAK
    swap members now.


    I LOVE mailing RAK's it is so fun to get the pm with a huge "thank you" from
    the recipient.

    Glad you are experiencing the kindness also.

    [QUOTE=Wonnie;5156461]Maybe I'm wrong but doesn't RAK stand for Random Acts of Kindness? [/QUOTE
    I agree!

    Yes, this is the best place to be. After looking for several years for a baseball field pattern a member of ths board found one in one of her books and offered to send it to me. I went on line and was able to order the mag and a few days later had the pattern. Now I am waiting for the fabric I ordered to come in. Should be any day now.

    Just today one of the board members offered me a pattern I had admired. So many here are so thoughtful and helpful. I hope I too will be able to show a RAK when I see an opportunity.

    Is it possible she didn't receive it? Maybe you could email her and ask if it showed up.
