    Another newbie from NC

    Hi all!

    Technically, I'm not a newbie. I quilted for a few years between college and children. Now, 20 years later, I am come back to a fondly remembered hobby, but with significantly less vision. So I am figuring out how to do things all over again.

    I can't see the needle on my sewing machine anymore, and I have to use magnifiers to use my tools and see my stitches. So far, going back to doing everything by hand has worked the best - tracing templates, hand cutting, hand piecing, & hand quilting. Good thing I've always enjoyed lap quilting!

    Yesterday is history; tomorrow is a mystery; but today is a gift.
    That is why it is called the present.

    By all means let's be open-minded, but not so open-minded that our brains drop out.

    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
