I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.
We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.
It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.
I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Dear Kathy, I am also a group of one. I do enjoy knitting and quilting. I knit the baby hats becauce of one special girl. My sisters granddaughter. She was born 3 months early. She weighed 12.6 ounces and was 10 inches long. Thank God she is healthy and 5 now. She was in nicu for 4 months. All the babies are special. That is how I started this project.
Hey Ruth, I am new to this site tho I have shopped CT for years. This is the first group I've looked at and was dismayed to see your post. Tends to make me think the group not so active. I have crocheted preemie caps as well as belonged to a very active charity group when I lived in Florida. Sadly, have been unable to find any of the same groups here in Virginia so am starting to form my own, lol. Right now I am a group of one!
Is anyone still in this group. I knit tiny baby hats for the nicu for a hospital in peoria il. the babys are from under 1 pound to 5. You can imiange how small some of them are. PLease write back. I would like to hear from others who do this kind of things. Ruth Ragland
that is so cool... i have a few people say Pay it Forward...good evening... working on a Quilt of Valor quilt.. first time trying this. i used to make smaller ones for the nicu unit when i lived in green bay... and pillowcases but now since i moved back to milwaukee i found other charities to quilt for.. i also would like to make some quilts for the adults in the cancer floors too.. not just for the children.. Adults need that caring blanket .. take it from me.. i know.. a high school friend sent me a beautiful pink lap quilt and it really comforted me when i was going thru my mastecomys and other surgeries.. breast cancer is hard but having a quilt was a comfort.. so let us not forget the adults too
Greetings everyone! I am so excited to have found this group. If you look at my pictures, you will see my PIF ( Pay It Forward ) quilts. I didn't do many for a while because we were in the process of moving. In my new town, the quilt groups are very much into giving. I love it !
