Hi, I'm Lisa and joined last week. Thanks to all of you who helped me with the t-shirt advise.
I figured I better try and follow some guidelines, of course I had to find the time to read them first. :)
I'm an experienced quilter and seamstress of over 40 years BUT have never had any formal lessons. I learned at the knee of my grandmothers and great aunts and aunts, well you get the picture. generations of beautiful handwork, I definitely feel blessed to share in that gift and ability.
I've never joined a message board or participated in any virtual community quilting groups. I've actually always wanted to part of a regular quilting bee, but as of yet have found none. I have started and assisted many successful prayer shawl groups tho, both in yarn and fabric.
We recently lost our home to fire (October) and so I have been very busy trying to make quilts as we wait to move back in our house, looks like April. Shopping for fabrics for window treatments etc. It's all fun and somewhat overwhelming. I think I'm over the depression of losing everything (ha if that's possible right?)
anyway, the little temporary rental is sweet, not very practical but fun. It's small. Good things too though, I got a new sewing machine. Another Husqvarna, technology and features have certainly come a long way.
THE MAIN REASON I'm posting is I'd like to know more about and play in the swaps etc. I read the rules and some of the groups, a little scared to jump in.
Could use some advise and encouragement.
A little personal information to share, it's just me and hubby, my son is in college. We have a spoiled dachtsund and two spoiled Tennesee Walking Horses.
Thanks so much for all of your time and kindness.
