    Hi, My name is Estella. I'm from San Antonio, Texas. I've got 3 children and 5 grandchildren and another on the way in Feb. I'm married and have been handicapped since 2001. I have time on my hands (when 9 brothers and sisters are not calling on the phone) so I'm trying to learn to quilt from books and TV shows. Hope to meet alot of friends even if we don't always talk about quilts.

    Hi - My name is Victoria, I am 68 years old; 4 children and 2 grandchildren. I have been hooked on quilting for past year and a half. Get most of my guidance from a church friend who only hand sews quilts. Have made 4 but would like to move on and experiment with machine sewing top -- trouble is I am terrified!! Ordered a book on it recently and hope to receive it soon and I will get up nerve to put it under a machine needle after I have spent time cutting and putting it together!! Dont know why my registration isn't listed on board either. vhokanson@hotmail.com

    Hi Estella and Victoria. My name is Diana and I am soon to be 62. I have 4 daughters and a son and 11 grandchildren. I live in sunny San Diego and have been quilting for about 14 years now. I take lots of classes whenever I can (I still work full time) and I use my quilting to relax. I do not assemble my quilts by hand but I do a lot of hand applique and hand quilting. I even prefer it to using my machine. I belong to 3 guilds and an applique group. Don't let the machine terrify you, if you make a mistake, you can always correct it. Just remember that the Amish who are professional quilters put an error in their quilts on purpose to make them unique. Have fun quilting and ask lots of questions here, you will get lots of help. That is one thing about quilters, they love to help.

    Hi Diana:

    I have been facinated with the Amish and have visited the Amish area of PA many,many times and have also read many books on the Amish. The real reason they put a mistake in each quilt is that they believe nothing they make can be perfect - only God is perfect.

    My quilts are never perfect - so I don't have to purposely put a mistake in them - lol.
