Hello, I just join this board and it is the first board that I have joined, so please help me if I make mistakes with postings. I am Mary Ann and from Wisconsin. I absolutely love quilting and thought it would be fun to connect with others. Actually I have been reading these posts for awhile because there are a lot of answers to my questions, so I decided to join in the fun. I recently (last weekend) purchased a long arm, so I am having "fun" and a few frustrations (darn tension) learning the ins and outs of that. I am also a consultant with My Lazy Daisy and am having a ball with that. I can now help people select quilting kits, sewing projects, and fabrics from the designer Dana Brooks. Guess I have turned an interest into a passion!
