    Quilting acronyms

    Is there somewhere on this site that lists frequently used quilting acronyms. I know what LQS means, but there are others I am coming across that, being new to this site and quilting, I'm stumped.
    Thanks

    Look at the 2nd sticky at the top of the Main page.

    Actually it might be the 1st sticky, depending on how you are viewing the page (I view in order of time posted).

    I received a note from a friend with the acronym WOF, but "width of fabric" didn't make any sense. She was referring to Women of Faith.
