Need table names ...

As mentioned in another thread, the Indian Guides will be at Camp Cheerio while we are there. They always have cute tribe names on their tables, so we came up with some of our own and used them. This year I think we will need 4 tables and I would like to make "fancy" plaques for them. I thought a contest for names would be fun, so here goes. Nominations are open till Sunday. I will post all names nominated and you can vote for 4. The top for will be used at the retreat. You do not have to be coming to the retreat to nominate or vote. Here are the names we have so far:

1) Runs With Scissors
2) Dances With Wools
3) Empty Spools
4) Piece Makers
5) Thread Heads
6) Wears Thread Proudly
7) Frog Stitchers

Feel free to add to our list.

This might need a preface, Bev.

At Camp Cheerio, we eat in a large communal dining hall filled with round tables and maybe another 150 campers, mostly children (they let us in first before the stampede). The campers sit with their "tribe" by names on the table and they find their own table that way. Since we're off in a corner at same type tables but without names, we added names to our tables in similar signs so we'd look the same. Names that are understandable to 8 year olds are best.

That said, I like

1) Runs With Scissors
2) Dances With Wools
3) Empty Spools
4) Piece Makers

Stands With Fabrics is great! LOL
I love Dances With Wools and Runs With Scissors. They are so funny and clever too.
In the same theme, how about Plays With Tension?

RE: Need table names ...

Oh, these are great. I will post a new thread Sunday with a complete list so the voting can begin.

I'd like to change my suggestion to Waits for Feathers.

But I'm definately going to vote for Runs With Scissors and Dances with Wools.

RE: Need table names ...

I kinda like the Dances with Wools, Runs with Scissors, and Wears Thread Proudly. After subbing today, my brain is too tired to think of anything else!

RE: Need table names ...

Great idea! I like Runs with Scissors a lot and also Plays with Tension. As for Dances with Wools, I never use wool so it is not very representative of me, but still cute. Maybe Dances with Thread as a suggestion for those who don't quilt using wool?
I'll see if any ideas pop into my head. I just got back from helping with my triplet grandsons for 2 weeks. They are now almost 6 months old. The overnight flight home got me even more tired. I slept about half of the day once I got home. The babies sure are cute though. You know I will have pictures with me at Camp!

I also like "Runs with Scissors" and "Plays with Tension"-

RE: Need table names ...

I can hardly wait until you get all the suggestions posted Sunday, beverly. I haven't been this excited about voting in a long, long time.

More suggestions:
