Quilt With Us

From most of the feedback I have received, it seems that my intentions of posting my "Health Coach to Quilters" information have been misunderstood.  

 I was actually wanting to just get some objective feedback from quilters about what I was trying to do - from people who are not already my friends - again - I lost a dear friend to cancer and I do not think she had to die - I am trying to find ways to help people - and I am a quilter - I am 66 years old and retired - still do teach at our local community college on occasion but have no interest in working full time or even part time, anymore....  I have been on this site for several years, now,  but have not made comments - I am sorry if it seemed like I just jumped in with an intent of 'selling my business'.   I pretty much share what I know, 'for free' - and even as I envision how I might do this, it takes more of the form of sharing at guilds to give 'quick and easy ways to improve your health'.   

Again - I have just set up my sites and had wanted some independent feedback from quilters, and I just happened to belong to this group, and always get emails of peoples' comments.   I am very sorry that I used what appears to be poor judgment about this.

I saw nothing wrong with you sharing your information.  I have seen all sorts of solicitations on this site, some quilting related, some not, and I didn't feel that there was anything wrong with reaching out to fellow quilters about something that could be of interest to them.  Maybe some people only want to discuss the actual process of quilting itself, but I've seen a lot of posts by members concerning health issues, so why not?

I'm sorry your good intentions were taken wrong. PQ worded things very well.

Thank you so much!  I was kind of 'knocked down' by the first comments I received - my mother had a little sign that said, "Seven times down, Eight times up", so I had to grab hold of that, today!  Thanks for helping me feel better!

Don't give it a second thought, Karen.  We share lots of things on here - family concerns, health issues, joys, sorrow, exciting news - and even some quilting. :)  Your new venture is no different.  It is a topic that is important to you.  There have been several members who use this site as self promotion.  I figure they are just using the tools that are available and it does reach a large audience.  Some will be interested, some will be annoyed and some will be indifferent.  Hopefully your feelings weren't hurt by the comments made.  Here's to helping others.
