Hi, I have been lurking around this board for over a year now, I have decided, it's time to stop lurking and become a member. I live in east Texas and have two boys ( both Eagle Scouts) . I have been sewing since I was about 8, but made my first quilt about 3 years ago. I am still very much a beginner. I have been reading this board for such a long time, I feel like I know some of you. It is great to be at a place where everyone is so friendly and helpful to each other. I too, sort of miss the set up of the old board, but live is full of changes, like everything else, it just takes a little time to get used to the new way. I just wanted to say I've really learned alot from all of you, and hope to continue learning more in the future.
