    Agree. I want to encourage new quilters. I remember what it was like when I was one, ( in some ways I still am). the more I quilted the better I got, So encouragement is the road to travel.
    A kind word turns away fear and rejections.
    Thanks for asking.
    You are doing great.

However communication exceeded expectations..)????

    And the new quilter said she was sorry more than once for the mistake?
    I would never leave negative feed back that the public would see, especially for a new quilter. One sure fire way to lose what will someday be a great quilter! This is something that should have been handled by the swap host/hostess in my opinion.

    When you enter into a swap you knowingly are aware that there are quilters of all skill levels. That being said not every item you receive will be 100% perfect. (doesn't mean that only new quilters make flubs either)

    I have 2 rules I follow:
    1. Always be gracious!
    2. Only give advice when asked! (reason being we all arn't perfect)

    You feel fabulous, fantastic, and exhillerated because you made it thus far and have at least another 50 or so to go. You have spent your life doing the best you can and will do so the other half. You are closer to retirement, maybe 20 years or so I am sure, so you can spend more time quilting.

    Any just because I have the software that will change the file, my machine uses pes, but I can change it to HUS, VIP, any of the embroidery designs.
    You have been so busy, the fans are beautiful.
    Haven't talked to you for a while. How did you do with the storm?
    Love you
