So...happy year to you...

Well it has been a long time since I posted. What a naughty blogger I am. So why blog now? Well, something quilty is on my mind and I thought I'd ask what people think here. I could just ask the members of either guild I belong to but that would be too predictable.

So here is what I'm wondering. Have you ever gone to a guild meeting and looked around and thought, hmm. There are few young(er - because youth is sometimes relative) people in this room. Is there a way to get more young(er) people interested in quilting?

What do you think? Quilting does have a bit of an old-lady reputation. But so does knitting and somehow the knitters have broken through to a broad array of age groups. How can quilting do that? What was the appeal for knitting? (For the record, I do know how to knit and have even gone so far as to make a pair of mittens and also a sweater...but I must have bad form because it makes my hands hurt something awful.)
