May 31st, 2017 – More Leaked Screenshots! from Eric the Quilter


Today, is a sad day. Quiltgate is getting deep, and I have fallen down the rabbit hole… I have more screenshots from the secret quilters group, now renamed “Conservative With Common Interest”. The Hate in these is ridiculous. One person even tells others to report quilters they don’t like to the IRS, and for what reason, other than to stick them with an audit to tie up their time. (This is literally accusing someone of a felony offense.) Other topics include Threads of Resistance, MQX, and Jinny Beyer. You know, a valuable lesson could be learned, and even should ...

Another Response from Eric the Quilter


It’s 7am. I’m getting ready for work. I was thinking about a response I got yesterday evening… I must say, it’s a heck of a lot better than the last one! This one actually sounds thought out. The last one was vulgar. Vulgar in it’s simplicity. Vulgar in its message. This one is not vulgar. I’m glad she wrote apologies to the people involved. I’m glad she actively tried to do something.

Lisa Burmann: Dear Eric, I want to thank you for reaching out to me regarding my take on Quiltgate. The entire situation ...

Screenshots From This Morning from Eric the Quilter

more hate.jpg

It’s a beautiful Sunday, or at least it was… As I posted earlier about Linda Thielfoldt teaching at AQS, I had no idea the comment section was becoming quite the battleground. I did get called, “Eric the what’s his face“, because ‘The Quilter’ is just too much to remember. I’m not going to lie, that did make me giggle. We know there was a hate group, and we have their screenshots. Today we have a couple more items of debauchery to share with you.

I also wanted to point out one shot in particular, I blocked out ...

AQS Sure Doesn’t Seem To Mind from Eric the Quilter


Yesterday evening I reached out to AQS for a comment on the issues in the quilting community. They have not responded as of Sunday mid-day. Clearly they do not seem to mind. The image above is on the American Quilter’s Society facebook page. The caption above the photo reads…

Linda Thielfoldt—an award winning quilter and owner of The Quilted Goose in Troy, Michigan—has been quilting for over 40 years. She loves to share quilting knowledge as a teacher of quiltmaking and machine quilting. Linda’s classes are taught in a no-rules, fun, and lively style that provides ...

I Reached Out… from Eric the Quilter


I did some soul searching over the past couple of days.

You see, at first I was upset many of these big name quilters and quilting companies were not saying anything on the topic. As I pondered what must be going through the heads of these titans in the quilting industry, I figured… Just ask them. Just ask them, what could it hurt to ask as to why they have been silent. Ask them if they will take a stand against bullying. So I was up late yesterday getting a list together of companies and people to email. I did ...

Sexism In Quilting – The Conversation Worth Having from Eric the Quilter


Today is a another special occasion. I have an interview with a blogger and quilter. I just met Stephanie in a Fiber Artist group online…. No, it was not secret. As we all know, I’m working on a set of 4 interviews with people who have been victims of Homophobia, Racism, Sexism, and Ignorance, as these are the themes for a quilt I’m working on for the Human Rights Campaign Dinner. This is our second interview. Her name is

Stephanie Forsyth, a quilter, and let’s get to know her…

ETQ: Today we have quilt-extraordinaire Stephanie Forsyth with ...

It’s Been A Week from Eric the Quilter


It’s been a week since ‘Quilt-gate 2017’, and I’m still pretty pissed. I don’t know about you, but when I hear a response along the lines of, ‘We should just all get along and get back to quilting.’, it makes my blood boil. Really, we should just all move past this? Quilters were attacked, quilters were hurt, people are receiving death threats, and you just want to move on??? You have to be kidding me. Mark Lipinski pointed out on his blog that silence is the worst response. He also pointed out that many quilters aren’t ...

People Are Finally Talking About It from Eric the Quilter

this kind

Finally, after several days, people have begun to speak out. I am thankful people are finally talking about the issue. We have to take a stand against bullying, and the only way to do so is acknowledge that this attack on people was bullying. The group of people who wrote these hateful and hurtful comments are now trying to say they are the victims and outing them as bullies, in itself, was bullying… Gaslighting much?

The only way to deal with bullies, is to stand up and say something! Silence is not the answer! I’ve seen quite a few ...

Attacking Children… Shame On Them! from Eric the Quilter


Seriously, attacking someone’s child. Name calling. That is where we are at. It’s disgusting. These people actually attacked someone’s child, who is a minor, with name calling. This woman posted a video about how hurt she was that these people targeted her, and then they continue to target her and her bring her son into it. This is vile. These people are bullies and should be labeled as such. Don’t believe these people would sink that low, check it out.On top of that, now they are on the mole hunt. Those ones are mainly funny ...
