Hi my name is Jodie and i'm a wife and mother of three boys. I'm only 29 and my friends think its weird that I want to take up quilting.
I went to a Cracker Barrel with my husband a few weeks ago and so a beautiful quilt, then a light bulb went off. Although I loved the colors and design wouldn't it be more meaningful if I made something with my own hands?
So I started looking up quilting. I live in Brooklyn and this is not a hobby kind of neighborhood so it's not that easy to find a fabric shop or craft store really ( closet I have is a michaels).
I would really like to make a quilt by hand, no machines, and hopefully after I get the hang of things ( who knows christmas is around the corner) get a sewing machine.
Anyone have any advice before I go crazy in the store buying things?
