    New here. I have sewing experience, but am new to quilts

    Hello everyone. I have sewn for kids and household for years, but being a Mom of 6 I haven't had the time or space to quilt but have always wanted to. The nest is almost empty and I now have more than enough of both. My machine is from my Gramma who quilted (an old Singer 401a) and I have a beautiful hand stitched quilt done by my great Gramma in the late 1800s she didn't use a machine for anything. I have always been a bit intimidated but I am going for it. In doing research I have been routed to this site A LOT so here I am looking forward to the adventure.

    Welcome from Australia. You will become addicted to this board but like the rest of us you won't mind. Ask anything as no question is stupid, just an unknown answer. Happy Quilting.

    Welcome from Iowa! This site will help you learn a lot. Just remember Rome wasn't conquered in a day. Just start and it will all fall into place.

    New to the board and quilting myself but I've been watching this board for a couple of months. The people here are so friendly and helpful. I've never seen a rude remark to or about anyone! Don't be shy. For every question on here you will get at least a half dozen answers!

    I have noticed how nice everyone is too in my wandering around the site. I live in a very small ethnic town and don't know anyone who even sews so it will be nice to have a place to go for all the little questions. Thanks for all the welcomes.

    Welcome from SC Texas. Happy you joined us and hope you jump into making a quilt soon. I still sew and quilt on my 401A I bought new in 1958. I have a newer Brother with quilting tools, but still love the Singer the best.

    Welcome from the Mississippi Gulf Coast. Will you post a picture of your Grammas' quilt?
