Re: [inbetweenstitches] !! All Members! Read! Respect in Our Venues

Whoa - I thought I was a bad girl.  :)
Last year I had someone leave because I "marginalized her and her friend".  Emilie helped me to understand what marginalized meaned and then I realized that it was the person and not me.  She felt ignored the last 2 times she attended because I was busy with everyone else - I had 15+ in the house.  I DID ask her if she or her friend needed anything.
Rebecca thought this was funny and told me to just forget it about it.
I Have to say I am VERY grateful that I have not had to deal with the situation in your lap.
How are you doing, besides this?  I know, Facebook.  Sorry sweetie, but with every horrible thing going on right now, it turns out that not being on Facebook was the best thing ever.
When I am able to talk I will call.  Probably when I am in Utah this March.
You take care.  Moni

Hi Ladies,

As a reminder, please remember that no matter what venue we are in that you are REQUIRED to respect that space. Whether we're at the church, a restaurant or someones home you must be respectful. You represent our group and yourself. If a member is kind enough to open their home to our whole group, please remember this is their private space, home and where their family lives. Please don't touch their phones, computers, go through their house, drawers or any other items without asking the owner. Even something that seems innocent in your mind is not fair without asking. I've noticed several things lately going on so this is coming from me, not others in the group. There will not be an open discussion of details so please DO NOT ask me who/what/where/when.

To respect the privacy and embarrassment of everyone (who may or may not know what I've even seen) I won't share the situations I've witnessed lately but please be aware of your actions & remember to respect every space we're in or I will be having a serious discussion directly including up to removing members from the group.

Sorry for the intense email but once in a while I have to send reminders that aren't as fun.


Thank you for your attention on this matter.
