    Hi! My name is Gwin, which was my maternal grandmother's maiden name. She was a life-long quilter and taught me to quilt in 1970. Since then, I've set quilting aside several times because of life-events but I've always returned to it, finding much joy and comfort, and through the years, my quilting friends have always been been the ones who sustained me as I have tried to sustain them when life was throwing lemons at us. I'm looking forward to sharing experiences with everyone here. I am a widow and my 3 grandchildren are the lights of my life.

    Thanks you, craftiladi. Maybe I should add that I'm a native Texan and still a Texan at heart though happily transplanted to the beautiful Pacific Northwest almost 18 years ago.

    Thank you, Lisa_wanna_b_quilter. My Air Force pilot husband was stationed in Illinois for 2 years in the late '70s and I still have a friend there. We survived the winter of '77-'78 in southern Illinois!

    77- 78 was a tough winter! We missed tons and tons of school. The snow plow got stuck trying to plow the road to our house and a bulldozer had to be brought in to dig it out.

    My Uncle was in the Air Force stationed at Scott a couple of different times over the years.
