I'm new here, and to quilting as well, so thought I would introduce myself. As my topic title says, I hope men are allowed here, since I am one. :) I'm 48 years old, live in Arkansas, and have always loved quilts, so finally decided to dive into the hobby. My wife is an avid machine embroiderer, and my oldest daughter (19) loves to sew, so I have set up our basement as a sewing room for all of us to use. We each have our own workspace and machines - I purchased mine last week and it is a Brother Innovis NX-650Q "Quilt Club" machine. I'm learning on it, and quickly saw that there is a lot to learn! :lol: I finally picked out an easy quilt to begin on, and purchased my fabric and supplies today and have it all washed and dried now. Soon I'll start cutting and piecing and we'll see what comes from it.
Thank you all for help with what I may ask, and I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can and giving back when I can.
