I love quilting and have always wanted to join a quilt guild. I'm pretty shy though and wonder if it would be awkward to join a guild because in my stereotypical mind, the other women would be in their 50's and I'm only 28. Have any of you joined guilds? Is there an age difference and if so, does it matter? Would they welcome noobish skills or do you already have to be pretty good? Would you recommend it? I'm pretty new to this town and don't know anyone yet. I'm looking for some crafty friends. Just hoping to hear some feedback from all you wonderful quilters
And as a side rant, what is up with all the quilt shops that close before 7pm and aren't open on Sundays? How are working girls supposed to support their local quilt shops if they aren't ever open?! Not all of us have the luxury of being able to craft during the day time in the middle of the week. I know they need time off too, but it drives me nuts. End rant.
