    My Dear Momski, most quilters are very sweet and elegant people with sharp minds and bodies when it comes to quilting and daily life. Those woman probably didn't have a clue about quilting or ever used a sewing machine in their life. Please try to forget what they said and remember, the mutiple pages of wonderful quilters that have replied to you being upset. You deserve the best wishes for all your quilts to be the best show stoppers. Put your next one in that museum, and wait for the (3 so called ladies to return), then call the quilting police on them. Laugh and run like heck. Hugs for you honey, you really deserve them. Happy Quilting.................

    What does a "Quilter" look like? Or should I say what do some people think they should look like. Quilters are men and women who enjoy the craft. We come in all sizes shapes colors and age I might add. That is what makes our quilts so different and wonderful.Any one who has an idea of what they think a quilter SHOULD look lke is not one of us.

    My husband and I were on a trip on our motorcycles and Sunday came around and we decided we needed to go for a morning of worship. Needless to say,the stares we recieved when we walked into the door and sat down. I do not believe a person there new what the sermon was about, No handshake... No nothing..

    Not quilters related, but I recently flew First Class by using frequent flyer points and because I don't look like a "typical" first class flyer, the looks I got were amazing. One couple with Business Class tickets tried boarding when they called First Class and were turned away at the gate and told to wait. I thoroughly enjoyed walking past them and onto the plane before them. And I thoroughly enjoyed my First Class flight.

    I think it is sad when someone believes that they make themselves look (and feel) better by tearing others down. Bad form!

    Does Karen McTavish look like a "typical" quilter? And look at her unique artwork! I dislike stereotypes. We all belong to the sisterhood of quilters and our focus should be on creating the best we can and enjoying the process. How we look should not enter into the equation.

    amen to that! I always feel that I'm regarded as a'bag lady' because I guess I may look like one, but in my 75 years I have cut and stitched thousands of yards of fabric, given lessons to countless others. You can not tell what talent is in someone else by looking. Maybe the work they do does not meet your standards, but we are all a work in progress. Bless you for being interested in others' work. If you were not there to learn and admire other's work, you wouldn't be there. Shame to the so called ladies tht made you feel bad.

    For this reason we won't every pay good money to go to another quilt show.....I enjoy sewing and will keep on keeping on.
    Love the seam ripper with a rather BIG sharp point idea.

    Know what I think is really pathetic?

    That we get so upset about something like this! Was there any bodily harm done to anyone? Did anyone suffer any property damage?

    Are we always considerate as customers? Have we never, ever made an impatient comment about someone else in a public place?

    Read about what happened to trupeach's daughter (think it was her - rock dropped/thrown through a windshield)

    My nephew was just about killed when a bunch of thugs ganged up on him and kicked him in the head until he was unconscious. Reason? He got out of his pickup and threw it back at them after they threw something at his pickup! (this was at a gas station at 1:15 am)

    Those people are a disgrace to quilters everywhere. I've NEVER met any quilters like that!

    You got some machine there! It must be a dream to ride all through this beautiful country on it.

    You got it wrong: The people who are looking at you are not looking crosswise, they are jealous!

    There you are having fun!!

    Some of Jesus' followers didn't "like/appreciate" the people He hung around with, either.

    Amen. And Amen.

    I believe people are bullies because it fills some sort of inadequacy they have. So really, we should feel sorry for them, because they just don't get it!
    I think that with some people, SOME, that being rude back to them is like taking candy from a baby. They don't get it. They are completely ignorant.
    But I only feel that way sometimes. :) For those who know better; shame on them.
    There's a difference between being unaware and choosing ignorance.

    And I think that's all I have to say. :lol:
