. . . and need help. My name is Cynthia and have yet to actually quilt. How SAD for me. I've made a couple of tops and learned that our ONLY quilt shop does offer help as well as project specific classes. My husband & I retired in 2007 and moved to live in Big Bear, California, in 2008. When we started "courting" almost 15 years ago, we both knew we wanted to retire here so here we are in ". . . our little peace of heaven." I've been reading the postings for about a month now and have gotten a lot of very useful info. I do have a question for the board but am not sure how this works. For now I will send this and look for more info on posting my question. I look forward to my continued enjoyment of the site and, who knows??, I may be able to offer some help myself. In the meantime, Happy Holidays to all and God Bless.
