    Well, Mr. Murphy, I am the mother of six sons and the grandmother of four boys... So that means I can read it, right?

      haha, of course, especially if they join the bee!! and it's Ms. Murphy LOL

      I titled the post like this so the guys would read it - and I totally knew others would too. Hopefully others that know male quilters that will join!

      It seems that there is a blog land hub bub going on about the name of this bee - apparently some women found it offensive.... seriously, not kidding!

        I thought you meant "thread" like a "spool of thread" and I couldn't imagine why a particular kind of thread would only be for boys! LOL

            Thanks for the links, Murphy. Those links plus all the ones they led me to have opened a whole new world for me. I didn't realise there were so many 'man quilters' out there.

              Your welcome, Ron! I thought of all the guys here when I was reading the threads. I think it is so cool - please keep us updated if you join the bee! I will definitely be watching the flicker link to see all of the quilts!

                    How COOL is that??
                    And women are upset by this?
                    I really need to get off the exclamation point.
                    It may give people the idea that I'm bright and cheerful all the time....

                        Good for the guys! I am happy that they are finding places to connect with each other. They may get tired of being a minority on a forum, etc.

                            Occasionally I do solo projects but most of my quilting my wife, who is definitely a girl (believe me, I checked!), helps me with. I suppose I could start a "No Singles Allowed Quilt Bee" for couples who quilt together?

                            Neat idea. Weird that some people have gotten upset over it. I don't think it was done out of sexism, it was done to be fun and silly.
