I've noticed that there are quite a few quilters from Alabama, all of varying levels (I still consider myself a newbie though I've been quilting for a couple of years now). I know there was a quilting retreat scheduled for February that had to be cancelled due to lack of participation, but I thought it would be cool to see where we were all located and to try and figure out if there was a way to put groups together for meeting every once in a while.
Would anyone be interested in regional meetings with perhaps an annual or bi-annual retreat for the whole state to get together?
Being new to AL, I'm always looking for a chance to meet other folks with similar interests. Being a new quilter, I need all the help I can get in getting projects started and getting them finished, learning new techniques, etc. Online tutorials have been a wonderful tool for a solo-quilter, but being able to meet and share stories and tips in person would be fantastic too.
Just throwing it out there to see what the potential interest is.
