Unlimited Textiles

**********Thank you all for the wonderful response to the call for new members.
We now have a wonderful, vibrant group, a full sign and a waiting list!!**********

My very good friend Jan and I run a little known Yahoo group called Unlimited Textiles.

We came on-line to keep in contact with our members that had moved away, were now at university or had jobs.
Sadly we have dwindled and would love to have some new members.

The group is textile based and low volume to allow for other commitments.
We like to run 2 swaps per month based on a theme.
For example the theme could be Layers and the swaps could be a mini quilt and a bookmark.

You will not have to do both swaps and indeed you will not be forced to swap - where is the fun in that.
But we hope you would enjoy being in our playground enough to join in share ideas and swap when you can.

We would like all abilities.
Perhaps you have been working with textiles for a long time.
Maybe you used textiles a long while ago and think you would like to get back to this great medium.
You may even have never attempted any thing with textiles but would love a fun and supportive group where you can learn.
If you like to share and create with textiles we would very much love you to join us.

We would like to keep the group small, perhaps limited to around 25 members. This way there is an influx of ideas but we will be able to get to know one another without pressure.

If you think you would like to come and join us in our playground please e-mail me (addy in my profile) for an invitation. Or leave a message here and I will get back to you.

Go on, come and play. Hugs, Alis and Jan.

Hi Sue,
Would be happy for you to come and play. I don't have your e-mail addy so please mail me at and I will send you an invitation.

Alis - I would like to visit and maybe play! I already lurk on 87 other yahoo groups so may not be able to join in as much as I would like! Lv ANNA

Another lovely example of your textile work!! I'm delighted you asked me to join in!


Alis said...

Oh I wish that was my work but that belongs to the very talented Jan.
I'm delighted you joined.

HI Alis. I would love an invite to join your group, but if I hit a busy patch as I have just now, do we have to commit to swapping twice a month?

Alis said...

Hi Mags,
No you don't have to commit to that at all.
The only commitment is to have fun and swap when you can and when a theme takes your fancy.

Hugs, Alis

Hi Alis, thanks for your, as usual, kind comments on my blog. Glad you are enjoying the DVD. I watched it so many times during my obsession phase I can quote her, I think "just add a bit of glitter" "Those colours are not bright enough for me" "Nothing is out of bounds here" (contemplating cutting up the table cloth :)I think I ODed, Since that book I've done nothing.
Love to join your group, but not at the moment,maybe next time you are recruiting?

Alis said...

You did watch it a lot didn't you? I thought thinking of cutting the tablecloth was hilarious.

You will always be welcome. We would love to have you with us. You just let me know when your muse comes back from her holidays.

Hugs, Alis
