    Retired from teaching at 58 (my husband is older and he wanted to play), at 59 we had 4 deaths in the immediate family, moved to a mountain cabin near Yosmite and began a 5 year long healing process. At 60 I began to quilt which sort of amazed me because I grew up on a ranch and was the tomboy to beat all tomboys. Gee's Bend librerated my quilting, my husband loves my hobby and helps out whenever asked. We moved a few years ago to a one-bedroom apartment (in the top of a barn) closer to civilization and guess what..... there is a "craft" room next door and my wonderful newphew and his wife put a washer dryer in there and gave me one end to use (about 22x12' + large laundry area)... and at times I spill over onto the ping pong table (I have 4 3/5' folding tables already). Quilting had a lot to do with the healing (so did the mountains), which is probably a lot why my husband is so supportive of it! Overall, I'm one of the lucky ones in life.

    I started when I retired at age 67. Wish I could have started sooner.

    Started last fall after turning 67. It is slow going, but I'm making progress.

    I was 60+ when I started quilting. Sewed for many years before, but now I am hooked on the piecing and quilting.

    I took my first quilting class at age 62 (5 years ago) and have not stopped quilting since. I have always been "crafty" and have been sewing since I was 8 yrs. old, but quilting has take over as my favorite thing to do.
