I am 87 and have been quilting non stop for the past seven years. Bill and I had been married for 60 years when he was taken by pancreatic cancer. I was lost! Some friends encouraged me to join our Rec. Center, and Red Hats. My first trip with them was to the Texas State Fair where I watched a demon of the Viking embroider machine. That was all I needed to see, I bought one on the spot and brought it home and I haven't stopped. I have about 47 ggrand kids and announcements of more to come. I really have lost track of just how many because my grandkids can't figure out what causes it. I love them and love making quilts for them.
