      As far as I am concerned the entire Missouri* family is an inspiration. I have the utmost respect for any family who can work together in such a demanding business and still survive as a family.
      May God bless you all.

        I also have never said an unkind word against M*QC, and I certainly would never do so on this forum (or anywhere for that matter). I completely understand the time, effort and expense of operating a forum such as this and appreciate beyond words the lack of "strict" moderation that exists here and am amazed at the friendliness that exists in spite of it.

        However, I have wondered at times why it was not moderated when things get out of hand, (and lets face it, we are human and everyone doesn't always get along) so kudos to you for appointing mods. I have some experience moderating threads and know that it's a fine line between "dictating" moderation and moderating with...well moderation. I would hate to see this place disintegrate into "control freakishness" but I'm certain that would never happen here as everyone is so fantastic.

        Thank you for trusting us to take care of this forum with you. I think you all know how much the forum and M*QC means to all of us around the world but we sure don't say it enough. So.... from my heart to all of yours.....Thank you.

            Wow. When I first read this I started going over and over in my mind my own words here. I don't believe I've joined in any of the negativity, especially when it concerns you and yours Al. What I confess I am guilty of is not speaking up when something negative about the shop has come up, and I KNOW how it is for you guys. I've posted about how amazed I am when I get an order two days after I place it (still don't know how you do that!), and that any time I have had an issue I get a response quickly, weather permitting and all that. With the growth you guys are going through (bigger shop, the magazine, the countless tutorials.....) we gotta expect some growing pains. I feel fortunate to be watching all this from afar! I can say "I was a M*QC shopper before it was cool!"

            Finally, if it wasn't for stumbling upon you guys on the net I would have most likely given up on my quilting a year ago. Jenny has shown me that anything is possible and I believe I really can do this! She's given me the confidence to make quilts that WOW the people I give them too! I think this is a good move Al. Thanks for taking care of us!

              Well said, Al. I've often wondered when you would finally speak out on this issue. 99% of us on this forum love all of your family and would never think of complaining about any glitches that may occur because we know the tremendous amount of time all of you must be contributing to MSQC during this period of huge growth. I'm so excited to see how immensly popular your company has become and with this new quarterly magazine, your growth will be even crazier!

              2013 will be a year of exhaustion and headaches that go with a booming business and we are here to appreciate, love, pray and hopefully be a source of encouragement for the family. Thanks Al, Sarah, Natalie, Jenny, spouses, kids, and grandkids! These are exciting days and we have your backs! <<<<< Hugs to all>>>>>

                  I have been a member of this forum for only a very short time but I have thoroughly enjoyed reading all the posts and trying to catch up on all the posts that were here long before me. I love M*QC tutorials and enjoy Jenny so much. Keep up the good work, and thank you for all you do to keep this forum so interesting.

                    No problem...keep up the good work and keep the tutorials coming. Everytime a new tutorial is posted, the flag one now, I think "I want to make that"....don't know when I'm going to find time to make all these but at least I love watching them and thinking I might make them.

                      You guys are the best!!! Truly love MSQC and look forward to many years with you. Thanks for all of the work you do and keeping this forum so positive - Snafus are going to happen (hey, we're all human), but the way that you have handled them is exemplary and should be a model for all. Thank you!!!

                              I must add my Thank you also. There is nothing new for me to say but for me this forum has taught me a lot and keeps me company and even picks me up when I am feeling down. The ladies on here are just full of knowledge and so witty at times they make me laugh which some of us do need. And I have never had a problem with my orders from the store. So please except my heart felt Thank you to all .

                                I think Jenny and her family have done the best thing for the quilting industry.
