    Thanks for putting this list together. I sometimes have to ask about the acronyms used on the board. This will help a lot.

    Yippie and NStitchs ... I didn't know, but one of the other posters explained it in a previous post. I think that was on Page 2 (maybe 3)

    Now I dont have to feel so stupid. If I cant remember what the letters mean then I can just look at this. I made a copy and put it in my quilt file. You dont know how hard it is for new quilters to understand unless they know all the words... or maybe you do, else, why would you post this. Thanks again.

    I can't thank you enough for such an extensive acronym list. Being in the older generation, I don't always get up-to-date on the latest language our younger folks use, so this is a blessing to keep up with you all. Thanks so much...Gwena

    My initials are BB, so dublb is double B.

    QUILTS --- quaint unique individuals loving to sew. I would say 'quiet' but that does not work for this group.

    Is there anyway to save this as a reference. I've been around quilting for awhile but I still find myself guessing somethings. Many thanks for putting this together.

    You're welcome!
    Sure ... there's lots of ways.
    * print it out as is
    * print it out, using the option at the top of this page, under Thread Tools
    * cut and paste it into a file in another program you use
    * create a shortcut to leave it as an icon on your desktop
    ........ and I'm sure others can give more suggestions.

    By no means is the list complete!
