I would REALLY like a head-count of the Left-Handed Quilters out there in blogland.
I believe that there are more of us than ANYONE realizes!
And - just so you know - I was going to have a "secret" door prize - but decided against it.
I think participation should be based on the love of quilting - not the possibility of a
Maybe next time - but not now.
And - I didn't get a linky thingy set up - too much trouble and not enough time to figure it out.
Maybe next time - if there IS a next time...
Button, Button – Who’s got the button?
If you have the “A Left-Handed Quilter” button on your blog –
or the "Right Handed Friend of A Left-Handed Quilter" button on your blog -
please let me know in your comment - I want/need to update my "Lefties" list.
If you don’t have the button – you really should. (Especially if you're on my "Lefties" list already - reciprocity and all of that. ;))
If you don’t have a blog – just tell me that you would have the button on your blog if you had a blog. That’s good enough for me. I can still add you under - "No Bloggie - No Button".

#2 – PROPOSALS
But first - I would like to make the following proposals -
I propose that we form our own local "Left-Handed Quilters" (LHQ) groups.
If the “Modern” guys can do it – why can’t we?
I propose that we seek out other Lefties in the Local Quilt Guild - if you belong to one - and form our own groups.
I propose that we ask our Local Quilt Shop owner to post a sign-up sheet for Lefties –
or do it ourselves – on a bulletin board – at church - at the grocery store - or wherever they post notices - so that we can find out which other quilters in the community are Left-Handed.
I propose that we ask our Local Quilt Guilds and Quilt Shops for “Lefties Only” Classes - taught by Lefties.
I propose that – if we are Lefties – we offer to teach classes – for “Lefties Only”.
I propose that we help each other learn new techniques – cutting tricks – and share info – either in person or on the internet through tutorials on our blogs.
I propose that we add a page to our blogs – "Left-Handed Quilting" (LHQ) – with links to tutorials on “How To Do It – Left-Handed”.
I propose that we add the button – "A Left-Handed Quilter" – to our blogs – at the top where other Lefties can easily see it. Tell the world that we are Left-Handed!
I propose that WE MAKE SOME NOISE!!!
I propose that we all get together to do this again – real soon!
All in favor say “AYE!”
