Round Robin Redux

Wow! That post brought you out of the woodwork. A little research shows Nic and I were in the Prairie Schooler RR together, and Mercy was in the group too. All of us hosed.

As for outing her, she's already been outed. If you googled her, you'd find her on the "Stitcher's Report Card," an assessment of stitching traders. Frankly, I don't even think she's stitching any more.

The sad thing is that this wasn't even the first time I had a lousy RR experience. Back before the interweb, when we just had e-mail and 50 on-topic RCTN posts a week, I did one organized by Theresa Venette (she organized all of them back then). The very first RR I was ever in was stolen by the woman right after me. Excellent.

So a couple of years ago, I did one with friends. And still! Mines MIA. Its' like a freaking conspiracy. I can't win for losing.

Wow, hate that for you. A good round robin is wonderful, even the ones with a few hiccups are fun so long as everything eventually gets stitched and returned.

Hope you can get your pieces back somehow some way.

That's just crazy! I've been involved in about a dozen round robins over the years, and all of my pieces arrived safely back home. Most of the round robins that I particpated in where organized on a board that has lots and lots of rules when it comes to exchanges. For example, one must be a contributing member of the board for at least one year before being permitted to participate in exchanges. No fly-by-nighters or lurkers allowed. I know it sounds Draconian, but it seems to work.

The only RR I've been in was one with ladies from a stitching retreat... where we knew we'd see each other the next year. (everyone got theirs back, completed)
