    Cool hello

    I've been "trolling" here for a couple weeks and decided it was time to say "HI" My mother taught me to sew just enough to make a few dresses and skirts, but it was always a chore, not a passion. A few yrs ago I became disabled and find myself with lots of time on my hands (and very limited income) and unable to do much of anything useful. Spent the last couple yrs learning embroidery, knitting, etc. and finally decided to try some simple quilting projects. I'M HOOKED!! I've made some table runners and placemats. I have a jigsaw puzzle quilt started for my grandson and plans for a couple more quilts for family. To "practice" my quilting skills and different block designs, I'm making some baby quilts to donate to charity. I'm having so much fun and finally feel I can again contribute something to my family as well as the community. I'm going to have to be careful, though, as I could become quite addicted to vintage sewing machines. I inherited my mom's featherweight (complete with folding table) and just bought a Singer 15-91 off CL for free motion quilting.......a sweet alternative to an expensive sewing machine!

    Oh wow, you'll love your 15-91! I have one too. It sews beautiful stitches. I have a 201 as well, and some days I can't tell which one is my favorite! Welcome to the quilting board!
    Warning! If someone comes to your door telling you they are from the government and they're checking to see how bad the ticks are in your area, and then tell you to take off your clothes and dance around so they can check for ticks.... DON'T DO IT!!! This is a scam! They just want to see you naked! I wish someone had told me this yesterday, I feel so stupid.
