Playing the Name Change Game

You'll notice the spelling on my blog title has changed from The Gypsy Quilter to The Jypsy Quilter.  Apparently there is online quilting store that also goes by the name of The Gypsy Quilter.  The owner contacted me concerned that a professional business and and informal blog with the same name might cause people confusion, and asked that I change my blog title.

While I tend to give people more credit than that, given that she is a fellow quilter, and made her request courteously, I saw no reason not to comply.

I had to laugh at the irony of the situation though.  As some of you may remember, I started out as The Desert Quilter, became the Prairie Quilter when I moved to Kansas, and decided after the move to Texas to choose a name that I would not have to change if I moved again (which I did, by the way ~ move that is).  Hence The Gypsy Quilter.  And now, I am indeed changing the blog title yet again, albeit in a very minor fashion.  Maybe this will be the last time?

*And a shout out to my cousin, Lori, who suggested simply changing the spelling.  That made life easy.


  1. I'm rolling my eyes. If people stumble upon your blog they'll see that it is obviously NOT a quilt shop and move along.

    You were nice, though, to change it. Funny and ironic that the name you chose to keep from having to change it again had to be changed.

  3. So funny! But I'm glad you came up with a creative solution!!

  4. It was nice of you to change it and it sounds like the request was put to you in a nice way too which probably helped.

  5. Great save! Maybe this one will last.

  6. Hey, keep posting and we will keep finding you Michelle! Hope this helps, because you gotta admit "gypsy" fits pretty well, lol

  7. I noticed that first thing. It works and you were very nice to do that.


Your comments brighten my day. :-)
