Howdy!
  Rusty, I'm still in touch w/ Verdi; she's in her 80s, still quilting.

  Ruth's was one of the first Hug quilts; we made 2 quilts (1998) in her
memory, donating the first to her family, the second went to a raffle
recipient.

Re: Who has been a member of this group the longest?
I started sometime in the late 1990s.  The very first HUG quilt had
just been created for a guy who had access to free fabric and shared
liberally.  I think his name was Mike but am not quite sure as that
was just prior to my time.

That would have been Magic Mike, if my memory is correct. I joined in  
1997, I think -- not as early as many.

The last I heard of him he had to stop work and stop distributing
fabric because he had a brain tumor. That was quite a while ago.

I joined in 1995 when I got my first computer with a modem and had
access to newsgroups through my library. I recognize a few of the
names on that list, but not many.

Re: Who has been a member of this group the longest?
Hi, all.  Been some time since I was on the newsgroup, but do keep up on FB.  
I was cleaning out my outlook emails on my laptop and clicked on my  
newsgroup feed.  When I saw this post, I was intrigued.  When I used to do  
the Directory, oh, about 100 years ago, I used to check the archives for  
names I wasn't familiar with then.  I saw that they recorded message #1 on  
November 15, 1992. It was a reply by JJ so this was probably when the  
archives started and not necessarily when the group started.  Just thought  
I'd share.

  But do you know the name of the newsgroup? alt.what?   Because  
rec.crafts.quilting (later changed to rctq) did not start until Aug 93.  
Just curious :-)

Actually it was August 94.

The division of the rec.crafts.textiles hierarchy was approved in August  
of 1994 and the new groups were formed at the same time.  RCTQ was among  
those groups. At the time members of rec.crafts.textiles wanted some  
sanity.  RCT was too big and had too many people talking about too many  
different things.  So it was divided into 6 different groups, with a few  
others being approved into the new sub-hierarchy later.  The groups were:
rec.crafts.textiles.yarn        
rec.crafts.textiles.needlework  
rec.crafts.textiles.sewing      
rec.crafts.textiles.quilting    
rec.crafts.textiles.misc        
rec.crafts.marketplace  

rec.crafts.marketplace was quickly overrun by the rest of the craft  
groups, and an approval request was soon made for  
rec.crafts.textiles.marketplace.

Prior to 1994, you had RCT, and whatever was in the other hierarchies  
where such a group might be permitted.  Undoubtedly there was at least  
one alt group. probably more.  Since starting alt groups does not require  
any sort of authorization they come and go with great frequency.

I imagine that if you do a search for: rec.crafts.textiles reorganization
you would find the details about at least the initial division.

Before the 94 reorganisation, there was already RCQ, not just RCT. (I  
posted the link to the proposal, voting and approval for RCQ (93),  
together with a link to the reorg (94) much earlier in this thread). So  
of course _this_ group is from 94, but it was a name/location change  
from RCQ rather than a new group.

I believe between you NM, Ragmop and jeanne there is nothing that  
cannot be unearthed.  : )   Thanks.
