Banished! And a Giveaway


I've been banished like an unmatched sock!!
 You all know  I love to work with wool as well as cotton. I've done quite a few fun projects, like this unfinished one,
 And this beauty...
 And this one...
Some time ago I posted the Rebekah Smith mystery on my blog. I looked at all the details on the facebook group and never once did I see anything in writing that it was a big secret not to share. As soon as I found out it wasn't supposed to be shared I removed the blog post immediately and told them it was me who posted it. (never did I try to cover anything up) Several folks jumped my butt and were "appalled" that I would break the rules. Well, I found out this week that before I got a chance to remove the blog post it had been pinned on Pinterest. I was "reported"! (this is a couple months later) What does that mean? Is there really people out looking to report people? Well, that was the last straw and they banished me from the group. At first I felt bad, but then I felt bad for people that were cruising the web looking for troublemakers and rule breakers like me. I guess I'll have to wait for the project to end before I can see what the rest of the wool applique looks like. 
May I implore you not to jump on the bandwagon when someone supposedly has broken the rules? I had no idea until I wrote and asked why I wasn't part of the group anymore. Nobody had the courtesy to tell me they were kicking me out.
I've emailed the designer, Rebekah Smith, on August 6, and have given her to opportunity to make this right. 
Aug 9, update: All is right with the world again. Thank you Rebekah for correcting the situation. It says so much about what type of person you are!  
Alrighty, moving on to celebrate life and bigger things than nit picky people. I have a giveaway!

Here is the fall 2016 issue of Primitive Quilts. If you would like to win this please leave a comment with your current email address. I'll announce a winner on Friday.

Giveaway is Closed! Thank you all for entering.

I hope you won't hold the banishment against me!
Love to you all
Lori

  1. WOW! Banished?! I could see a public flogging, but banished and not informed. Sorry that happened.

  2. Oh my.... it's the first time I'm hearing that ...I'm so sorry for that ! WE LOVE YOU LORIIIII !
    And thank you for this giveaway ! :)

  3. I can't believe that. I'm sorry and yes WE LOVE YOU LORI XXX

  4. Oh geez, don't those people have anything better to do, like be nice to people.
    Sorry that happened to you.
    We love you Lori and your work.

  5. Banished? How ridiculous! Life is way too short for the hat nonsense- it's almost funny.

    Is this a group of adults or preschoolers?

    ReplyDelete
  6. :( Life is too short not to be kind. Hugs- have a great day,

  7. Sorry! I routinely drop out of Facebook groups because of the negativity.

  8. I feel for you. So sorry this has to happen to such a sweet and giving person like you. How were you suppose to know it was a secret? They are just little people and you are so much bigger than that. Personally, all I can hold is a candle to you as you are a much better person than I. We love you Lori! xox ;^)

  9. silly business - I don't get the whole "control" thing - show this, but not that. Share this, but not that. Oy!
    count me in as I don't get this magazine.

  10. Banishing you was their loss! I love your work and your blog!

    ReplyDelete
  11. My initial reaction was to laugh out loud, but then I thought, how could anyone do that to someone they don't even know? I'm afraid that is why I am rarely on Facebook. It seems that we are friendlier and more understanding in Blogland. I am sorry it happened to you of all people! It just shows how people go off half cocked these days. What happened to patience and understanding? I would hate to give up the internet entirely, as I have learned a great deal from quilting friends, but I think I am close to blocking the whole world out! O.k., rant over. I love your wool blocks. You always inspire me (too much sometimes!) to try new things. Enjoy the day. We all love you!

    ReplyDelete
  12. Oh well, they lost a fun and encouraging person in their group! Too bad for them! Hope the rest of your week goes much better!

    ReplyDelete
  13. So sorry to hear of your banishment and the reason for it. It seems as if some people never make it out of the sandbox. It certainly is their loss! So glad you shared!

    ReplyDelete
  14. I love your attitude. You really do have to laugh about it - otherwise it would be too easy to get dragged into,the muck. I have that little eagle block all cut, need to find it again and get it stitched!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I like the eagle piece very much. It looks very "rich" in the wool.
    I have a subscription to the magazine so don't put me in the drawing.

    ReplyDelete
  16. It is their loss! A yucky feeling nonetheless! Interacting with quilters on the web is almost always positive and enriching, but now and then I guess this kind of crud happens. Maybe just like in real life - every now and then a person or people come briefly into your life and cause a stir and then are gone. Shake it off and move on, which you have done! I think I already have that issue of the magazine!

    ReplyDelete
  17. Some people take themselves W A Y too seriously!!! I appreciate your sense of humor, but am so sorry it happened to such a nice person! Their loss for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  18. This isn't the first time I've read about a blogger getting in trouble with a designer! So silly, don't these designers realize that they're being paid a compliment & their business is being promoted when we write posts about their designs? This makes about as much sense as not sharing a family recipe! We're not giving away their patterns, only sharing what is under our needle. Don't they notice their websites experience a greater number of hits when their designs are seen on a blog, adding to their bottom line? I've seen the negativity on FB too. It really gripes me when a designer is doing a free QAL and people start nit picking when a step is delayed for some reason. Life Happens for cryin' out loud! Keep doin' what you do darlin', your work is a gift to the quilting community and there are a whole bunch of us who appreciate YOU!

  19. It seems some folks only pleasure comes in making others miserable. They're to be pitied I guess. So sorry you were targeted. Primitive Quilts is always a fun read, thanks for offering this giveaway.

  20. Lori, how sad someone else's happiness comes at your expense. Good job holding your head up.Love your wool projects they are lovely , keep up the good work.

  21. Love this magazine and have had subscriptions at various and sundry times but not currently. This issue looks like a super good one (as they all are!).

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh yes, please! I'd love a chance at the mag!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh, for Pete's sake, accidents happen. You're probably better off without them. I'm not a "Primitive" person so don't put me in your giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Wow! Rough crowd! Wish I'd seen your post, although I probably did. Just can't recall. I love my subscription to PQ&P. Hope whoever wins loves it too!

  25. I was surprised at all the rules and reporting people, etc.I just read blogs and am not that computer savvy. I enjoy your blog keep on quilting.

    ReplyDelete
  26. I don't get the banishing thing. I got my hand slapped once when I shared a different method of piecing a block in Yahoo group dedicated to fans of A FAMOUS DESIGNER. I guess members were supposed to use only THE FAMOUS DESIGNER'S method. What? Isn't quilting about sharing? I left the group. So have a chuckle and move on, right?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Quilters by trade are rule breakers. If something is a secret Facebook is NOT the place for it. Banishment sounds like a grade school play ground thing. Rejoice that you're free to do your own thing. :) I was really struck by your post on the 70273 project and will participate because I found it through you. So see there are positive outcomes to your sharing on your blog.

    ReplyDelete
  28. I just started slow stitchin' and the primitive thing. I haven't moved on to wool yet, but I just LOVE the table topper on the cover. So warm and inviting. I'd love to win! Shahann@yahoo.com. Thanks for the chance. Happy sewing!

    ReplyDelete
  29. I could see if they let you know, but I really don't get this new thing of not showing your work with patterns you buy. I make things for pleasure and if I have rules like that, not worth it to me;) It is a shame and unfair, and i understand, I read things but my brain doesn't absorb it all so I miss things and have had people get mad at me because I didn't read it all, life is too short for so much drama;)

  30. People are so petty! I joined Facebook to keep in touch with my daughter at college and it is so ridiculous all the whining and complaining on there. Hang in there! mcsdces19(at)gmail(dot)com

    ReplyDelete
  31. Wow, banished? Really? Seems like they could have been more understanding. This is why I do not do FaceBook too much. Like Tanya said in her comment. there is way too much whining and complaining on there. I also do not like all of the hate and the arguing that goes on on there a lot. Main reason I even have a FB account is to keep in touch with my daughter as well. I would love to win the magazine. Thanks Lori :)

    ReplyDelete
  32. Wow. Sorry about that. Just picked up a copy on Monday. Heres to celebrating life!!! Several friends I know are fighting for their lives, so I Will celebrate them.

  34. You crack me up!! What is the reason a finished "block" couldn't be posted? Has anyone come forward to say why?
    You rule breaker!! Wish I had known you in High School, we would have gotten in lots of trouble! Oops, FUN!!

    ReplyDelete
  35. I LOVE your Eagle! And I'm so sorry you were targeted by ''mean girls". Your life is so full that it perhaps isn't a big deal in the whole scheme of things, but it must be hurtful. And undeserved as you are such a kind and giving person. The actions of that FB group are not how we like to think quilters behave.
    Also, was this not a paid program? I looked it up: ''To be a part of the Stitch~Along you will need to buy the pattern from me starting Jan.2, 2016 at Noon EST for a one-time payment of $30 " If I were you I would demand a refund.

    On a happier note I d love to win a magazine!

    love

  38. Hahaha! You law breaker you!! That is hilarious! Sorry, though, too...hey, I already have the magazine, so don't include me in your drawing...everyone, it is a wonderful issue, and you will love it! Thank you for your generosity.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Lori, I've heard of groups that will strike you from the register if you don't play to their rules but you are the first I've met to have this experience! You're #1! But for many more positive reasons, I've had pictures disappear without explanation from groups also but not been dropped. They don't know what a loss they've created for themselves.

    I have a subscription to the magazine so please don't include me in the draw.

    Have a very good day.

  40. Wow! Sorry this happened to you, Lori. Just nonsense.

  41. The quilting police drive me batty. I had a comment on my blog about my ad-hoc improve,saying it was very influenced by a specific designer & to please give credit where credit was due. I was like wow! Does this designer 'own' that word or what? If they were referring to my style I'd say the influence was much more influenced by primitive & antique Quilts which just made her ignorant.😊 The jump to assign negative motives is just hateful all the way around.

  49. Me again. Didn't read the bit about PQ&P this morning because I was too blown away by you being banished.

  54. I got kicked out of a Yahoo Swap group for using the wrong Kona cream. I felt bad for a while. Had to just get over it! You just can't please everyone. I still haven't finished that swap quilt. Don't sweat it. I have that copy already so no need to include me in the drawing.

  61. That's too bad that you were removed from the Facebook group, Lori. You'd think people would have more important things to do that "police" participants -- like work on their own blocks and make more quilts! Their loss.

    Thanks for offering the magazine as a giveaway. I appreciate it.

  65. I really like the eagle block.
    Too much drama on FB for my taste. What a ridiculous action--to cut you out without even telling you. Sounds like a junior high clique.
    Thanks for the giveaway. I enjoy that magazine but I don't subscribe and the local bookstore that carried them is closing.

  70. So sorry, Lori - and good for you for letting people know what happened. I have seen photos from my own blog, photos of my property taken by others at shows for example, posted all over Pinterest with no attribution. I just accept it as part of the technology, people can copy and paste just about everything. You were helping a designer get attention for her work, I don't see a problem with that. Oh well, it's a lesson I suppose.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Hardly seems fair to banish you when you weren't the one to pin it! Some people need to get a life!

  72. Quilters love to share so it's easy not to see the fine print when you want to share something you've made. Sorry that happened. Anyway, I have some wool I would love to use so this book would be perfect. tljeo at yahoo dot com

  74. Lori, I'm so sorry this happened to you! I think that you are one of the most nice and creative person I have ever knew. But they loss something, not you ; )

  76. You poor thing! I innocently broke a facebook group rule once too, and I removed myself from the group after the first comment. I don't have time for folks like that, I say let them henpeck each other to death if that's what makes them happy. I've got too much fun to have for that sort of thing. Don't give it another thought, too many people are better off because of what you share to worry about one silly incident. Oh and I subscribe to that mag, so don't include me.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It is truly abominable the way some people behave and they would never do this to your face. Love the primitives and so am soaking it all in as I'm new to quilting. Thanks for sharing.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Don't give it another thought! Just reading your blog for so long anyone would know what a kind and good hearted person you are. I have always enjoyed reading your blog and watching what you do and will continue to do so! Hugs,

    ReplyDelete
  79. So sorry you were banished! I'm not sure why some groups have rules like that. My feeling is that the more people that see it across numerous platforms, the more that will join in--good advertising for the designer.

    ReplyDelete
  85. Several ways to look at. What happened. Trademark and writers rights are nothing to make fun of especially if it is your work that is being used/traded/sold with no prior approval. The members of that group did not have the final say, the owner did. Nice they wanted to defend the owner but not their ultimate say so. If you pulled the post off and sent owner a personal apology including what you have learned from the event, Well that is about all you could do but you also need to look into making your blog not open to unauthorized copying. Pinterest is an odd animal. I like/hate it.....same with FB. You can only lock down so far. Closed groups are the only venue that protects the most and it is being altered.

    So that is that and I am hoping everyone is having a sunny day, sewing up a storm and not hearing hammering, my studio is being built!!!!! we had rain and now sun and hoping we don't get another deluge like the one a week or so ago where we were a news item for being grossly flooded....hey look there goes my dock.....

  86. Geez. "No soup for you" I guess. Good to move on, there is too much fun to be had. Would love to read this magazine. Thanks for the giveaway.

    ReplyDelete
  87. Wow, sounds like a group I wouldn't want to be part of. Too Judgmental for me! It's not like you did it on purpose and everyone make mistakes. Unfortunately people don't let you make mistakes anymore. That's why young people no longer have any way to learn right from wrong. Anyhow, continue on and don't let it get you down! Thanks for running the giveaway!

  88. Lori, So sorry to read this. Innocent mistakes happen; but how it was handled is sad and speaks volumes about those with "middle school-itis". Banishment is harsh especially since you realized your mistake and made amends. I recently joined FB to catch up on family and to check on quilting related sites. I was a holdout because I'm not a fan of all the bullying and hate filled posts. When others are mean, you have to keep a happy heart! Hugs, my friend!

    ReplyDelete
  89. I haven't read all the comments, but I'd be willing to bet all 94 before mine sympathize with you and can't believe how this was handled! Personally, I don't want to have anything to do quilt police. If it's supposed to be a secret, it ought to be in HUGE letters and right up front in the rules! That you searched and couldn't find it is a good indication that this was not something that was emphasized. Pinning things without permission is one of the things I don't like about Pinterest. There are ways to try to keep people from taking pictures from a site, codes to put in, but there are also ways around them, and I know them, so I'm sure other people do, too.

    I'm glad you are working to diminish the effect this has on you. Can you incorporate what you've done into something else? I can't believe they didn't even have the courtesy to TELL you that you weren't going to get the information any longer and why. That's beyond bad manners and rudeness! Thank you for the giveaway. This looks like a great issue, and I've never seen the magazine around here. Maybe I just haven't looked hard enough. =)

  95. Good to hear you have moved on, but I can imagine you laid on your mind for awhile...I know it would mine. That table runner of the cover of the magazine is enough for my to want to look inside!

  97. I have found that people on the internet are vigilantes without looking to talk to the person who is "at fault" (in their eyes) first. Hopefully cooler heads will prevail.

  98. Oh well life goes on and it's their loss. All you can do is apologize and move forward. As my Father always told us, please there are people starving to death in this world.

  99. Recently I was contracted by my credit card co. I denied the purchase because the billing state was different than the shop. I received the nastiest email from the shop owner. Called me a thief. Why not just ask if a mistake was made. I mailed her a check, another check to cover her charges from the credit card co. And never got a thank you. Not all quilters are nasty. Thank heavens or I wouldn't call myself a quilter! Kindness goes a long way. Pass it on! Hugs and blessings for you. You are an inspiration for goodness.

    1. Some people just need to calm down before opening their mouth! A simple polite email goes a long way. If I know of a designer who treats customers like crap I try not to give them my business.

  100. I received a letter recently from a quilter who copied one of my patterns for a friend. She said she searched for the pattern and couldn't find it so she enclosed a check. I was so surprised. At first I thought she wanted to buy the pattern. I decided to send her two patterns and thanked her for being honest!

  104. Live and learn its just one of life's lessons. I appreciate the way you told the story of what happened how it happened and what you did to correct the mistake and what action was taken against you .
    Clear step by step

    There is just one nagging question in my mind was there $$ involved did you pay to join this group and/or to receive the patterns?

    If so did the booter outers refund your $$ or make arrangements for you to get what you paid for ?

    I usually only do free mystery things because I don't want to be guilted into continuing on with the mystery if it's above my skill level ( turning out poorly) or just plan ugly in my fabric choices because I've paid good money for that

    I always wonder what bad money is when I say that expression or hear it said

    Just look at how many comments what a number of supporters you have and here are many more who have not commented

  105. Dear Lori, I am shocked and saddened by the way you have been admonished, it is nothing short of playground bullying, and i find it extremely disturbing. Be assured that you are loved and respected by many for the caring, giving, sharing person that you are, and we will always stand by you. Big hugs to you dear friend.. Marian xx
