Wow, I just found you people and I am impressed with the forum! I have been quilting for about 7 years now and am totally addicted. My husband and I are empty nesters, though proud parents of 5 great kids and 7 grandchildren that we adore. I started sewing by my mom's side as a young girl. My grandmother was a seamstress, my mom and sister both excellent seamstresses and I now have two granddaughters that are starting out. I love quilting, and have transitioned from traditional to modern style quilts. I belong to a local modern quilt guild whose ages range from early 20's to 70 yr olds. I'm looking forward to chatting with you!!
