    What to name our quilter's group

    I just got back from 6 days in Minn. at a quilting/scrapbooking retreat. Next year we will meet in Iowa. We have been getting together for several years. The young ones in our group wanted to make sweatshirts with our name and a logo on it. Okay now we need a name. We vary from 10 to 20 in our group depending on work schedules. One of the young ladies has a commercial embroidry machine and will do the shirts. Love her for that. The big question is what do we name our group. We are from Minn. and Iowa so we tried all sorts of combinations of the state names and nothing really stuck with us. The last I heard someone came up with "The Scrappy Quilters". You ladies are great at coming up with unique names so here's another challenge. What are your suggestions for us.

    How about something like, The Traveling Stitchers or the Traveling Quilters. Maybe use a car full of women ( quilters ) going down the highway/road with road signs along the highway showing Iowa and Minn. quilt shop destinations. I love to design things like this!!!! Let me know if you use it......

    Or We're IN THE ALTOGETHER?

    I like the idea of a car going down the road with everyone hanging out of the windows. The ladies could be holding strips of fabric, blowing in the wind. As for the name--how about Scrappin' and Strippin' .

    How about the charm pack? Only quilters would get it though
    It is easier to be wise for others than for ourselves.

    Thanks for all the replies. I'll email this to the group and see what they pick. Clever names. I knew you could do it.
