Hi my name is Linda and I just turned the big 60. I retired from the workforce and now have time to quilt. I have sewed since I was a kid, but just got into quilting in the last year. I love it, and have learned so much about quilting from sites like this that have helped me tremendously, which I Thank you all. I just started to do free motion quilting and am really enjoying it. I have been stitching on my Viking #1+ since I purchased it in 1997. I love the machine and also love doing embroidery. I hope to learn even more from you all.
