I am not a joiner.  Joining groups with regular meeting times just isn't in  my introvert personality, with a few exceptions, namely 1) Bell Choir, and, since last summer, 2) my church charity quilt group.

I've realized that getting together with people is a lot more fun for introverts when we're actually, y'know, DOING something.  Like making music.  Or quilts.

This is our first charity quilt, made by the gang of us of mostly donated fabrics.  It's a Disapearing Nine Patch, which was more fun to make that it looked when I saw the pattern online.  Each of us made three or four blocks, the group leader put it together, we all tied it, et voilà!  A quilt, soon bound for a good home. 

Amazing how much more you can accomplish together than you can working alone.

Like you, I'm an introvert. I wanted to join a quilt guild, but after one meeting, decided that wasn't for me. I did find a group of ladies that
get together once a month to work on their own quilts. I talk some, but mainly just sit and sew. I like the company. Thanks for sharing.
