Eileen - I had to chuckle :lol: when I read this. It reminded me of when I was in the first or second grade (long, long time ago) and I colored the animals outside the line and the teacher said "no, no, no, that's not the way we do it!" I didn't see why I had to stay in the lines ... We were going to cut out the animals anyway!! no one would see the color outside the lines. I have loved art work all my life and it seems like every now and then someone says 'No, no, that's not the way to do it, even in my art quilt group. Some don't always understand why I paint on fabric so much. At TQS I feel that there are many, many that understand and encourage all of us to jump out of our box and dance.
I'm dancing with my paint brush and needle, Carolyn :lol: :lol: :D

I would love to see some of your art quilts, please :D

why I like TQS 05 Jun 2008 08:58 #19326

I have stayed out of this thread because you have all heard my thoughts on TQS ad infinitum. I have to admit that occasionally there is a show, a technique or some suggestion on the forum that is not something I would do and am truly not interested in. It is few and far between but differences are what make the world go round. I am not a traditional quilter and will never be a hand quilter. Am I going to quit coming here because Alex did a series on hand quilting. I watched every one and learned some things that will be helpful if I never pick up a quilting needle to do hand quiltiing.

And as far as some of the nonquilterly comments and things that come here, we are human beings and as Ricky said in the first show We need to get a life!!! So I love reading a blog about a graduation, cried over the flood story in the stories section etc. etc.

So for me ARJJ you are doing a wonderful job and keep it up. I know you are adding new things but for now its pretty darn close to perfect for me. I am not sure how much more quilting excitement this old body could stand.

Hi My name is Ann and I am a TQS addict.

Dana,
I can only imagine the conversations around the table for lunch and dinner in LaVeta!! :mrgreen:

TQS has given me a whole new perspective. I was so stuck in my box, coloring only inside the lines. I was tired of quilting the same thing over and over. I can look at it so differently now. It's hard to put into words-yeah, that's right; I'm at a loss for words. :oops:

Sherry, there are so many on this site that I too would love to meet. TQS has given me so much for my quilting life and my personal life as well. I am so thankful for it and for all those with the vision to do this. Thank you from my heart.

Dana in La Veta at quilt retreat for one more day. :cry:

ADDICTED AND LOVING IT!!!!!!!!!!!! 04 Jun 2008 04:36 #19256

:shock: :D :wink: It's good to have a place where you can talk and listen, cry and laugh, give and take. No matter how your day is going this is the place to be. Sisters are good to have. Thank you for this space. :D :D :D Debbie, (quilting sister)

Plop me down in the "addicted" group! I also have no other quilting friends except for those I have met on this site. No one in my family quilts and I'm not in a physical guild. This is the perfect cyberguild for me! TQS is my prime source of quilting information and fun and this is where I get together with all my friends! I had a question the other day about a project, I posted a picture and a plea for help in the member blogs and all my TQS friends came to my rescue. Where else can you get worldwide help almost instantly? This site has given me knowledge, inspiration, and most importantly some great friendships. Definitely worth every penny. Thank you TQS!

My name is Wanda and I'm a quiltaholic. My fix is TQS!!! I love the people, you all have become my friends. Where else can I talk to people all over the world and never leave home. I have learned so much, and thought that I would never try appliqué...how boring! Well, the BOM has definitely changed my mind. I love hand appliqué and learning all the different techniques everyone is using. I check in at least twice a day. It's the first thing I do when I get home from work. Thanks ARJJ for the leap of faith that brought us all together and for all you do. WandaM
Happy Quilting,

Shiner TX

My name is Carla and I am a quilt show addict..... it has been 9 hours since my last visit and I don't want to be cured!

I love the quilt show because I have no local quilt guild or anyone else that really quilts around me. You are all my quilty family and friends. When I am not sure what I am doing someone is always there to chime in and give me help. When I want to try a new technique and don't know where to get supplies, someone is always there to give me help (thanks for the down low on the hot fix crystals Bridget!).

When my heart was breaking at the loss of simply quilts... along came TQS and more than filled the void.....I have grown to know the Alex behind the camera and find her all the more dear..... and then there are my new hosts Ricky and Justin.... they are all a hoot!

TQS gives me so much more in return than the few dollars that I have given them. I only wish I had found out about it in time to have become a charter member. :O(

Thank you ARJJ!!!
