    Hi - I'm writing an article about lefties for American Profile magazine and found this site and thought it'd be interesting to hear from a left-handed quilter/seamstress. Article due soon, but if you read this and would have a few minutes to be interviewed, I'd love to hear from you.

    American Profile is a good-news weekly magazine with 10-million circulation. It's inserted in newspapers nationwide.

    I wouldn't be surprised if a larger percentage of the quilting world is left handed, compared with the population as a whole.

    Why would quilting left handed be any different than quilting right handed? Those of us who are LHed use both hands to some degree anyway just because of the way the world is set up. My only accommodation is using left handed scissors or scissors that are neither for LH or RH.

    LH person here too...and I agree with irishrose.

    The only thing I do different is ... nothing.

    My daughter is RH'd and we do things the same way.

    I too am a lefty. The only thing I do different, is to do things the opposite direction as a righty.

    Hello, and welcome from idaho!
    I am right handed, but I use one hand as much as the other. Happens when you have had casts on both arms at different times.

    I'm a lefty as well. I don't know what I do that is different; never paid any attention. Be glad to talk to you, though.
