What a great site this is with a wealth of information. Thanks so much to founder and hosts. I live in Northern California in a little town called Bella Vista which is on the outskirts of Redding, Ca. I am a retired postmaster adjusting to retirement as I have found I miss being part of the working community.
I have worked in the garment industry years ago doing piece work when my children were small. I was able to sew (and supplement our income) using my own industrial sewing machine which was set up in a spare bedroom. Any sewing I've done in the past did not require the precision as does quilting. I was humbled as I worked on my first quilt block last month.
My awe and respect to all you quilters who silently are working away making your creations.
Have a wonderful day.
