    Hi everyone! My name is Chris and I am "brand spankin" new to quilting! LOL! I've been a crafter for MANY years, mostly paper crafting and crocheting, but I've never been much of a seamstress. I feel it's time to give it a try! I'm really hoping to start my first quilt this year! I'm originally from West Virginia, but feel like a native here in Arizona as I've been here for about 18 years. All I have to work with is a VERY inexpensive Singer that has about five stitches to choose from in straight or zigzag! LOL! Can I even hope for any success using this machine? I'm really happy to be here and look forward to chatting with you again in the future!

    My sweet girl

    Hi! I was born in Parkersburg but did most of my growing up in Williamstown. Where in WV are you? I know where Queen Creek is...it's quite a little hike from where I am in Glendale.

    I live in Kenova, it's the most south western point of WV where the 2 rivers meet. Across the Ohio river is Ohio and across the Big Sandy river is Kentucky. It;s just out side of Huntington.

    Welcome to the Board Chris..all the way from Mesa! Also, welcome to quilting...wont be long now and you will be addicted. There is a Quilt show at the Arizona State Fairgrounds on the 27th, 28th and 29th, you should try to come on out. We are trying to arrange a Meet and Greet with some of the quilters from the Board. http://www.quiltingboard.com/tpr?p=2200425&t=86815

    I've been to Huntington...so I think I know about where you are! Williamstown is right across the Ohio river from Marietta, Ohio. In the winter when the leaves were down, we could watch the barges going down the river. I love Arizona, but I do miss the green and changing seasons of back home.

    Hi, thank you! I would love to try to make it to the fairgrounds one of those days! I think I'll be in Tucson on the 29th, but maybe one of the other two days! Let me know when and where you plan to meet!
