My name is Janet and I live in Northern California. I am so happy to have found this group. I have been "lurking" for a few weeks and enjoy how friendly everyone is and all the wonderful information that is available. I have minimal experience in sewing and quilting. I have made a few wall hangings and dresses but got sidetracked with water gardening and wood carving. It is time for a change and, fortunately, I do have a pretty good stash of fabric to get started. My husband and I are both retired and ready to try new things.
