A while ago I posted a question about joining a quilting quild because I did not know any quilters in my area. I bit the bullet and joined. Thank you all for nudging me in the right direction. A QB member sent me a pm regarding my quilt guild. We met for a quick cup of coffee which turned into three hours of chi-chat. She ended up joining the same guild and we both decided to leave our kids in capable hands of our DHs and go with our guild to a quilting retreat to Shelter Island. Who would have thought that one simple question on QB would have resulted in a new friendship, meeting a whole group of quilters and having so much fun. Cannot wait for my retreat...it is in March!
