    Quilting Board - the best site

    Hi
    I have to say that this forum is the tops. I love all the people that are willing to help with advice, tutorials and even the yummy recipes. I don't think there is another site around (probably is - I just haven't found it yet) where you can rely on getting at least a couple of replies to any cry for help.
    I have been very much a lurker for quite a while, but have found the encouragement and advice given to other newbies has given me the confidence to start patchwork/quilting and to be brave enough to ask questions without fear of being scorned for asking "stupid" questions.
    So to all you wonderful, experienced and beginner quilters I thank you for your encouragement and advice so freely given.
    Thank you one and all.

    I agree! I've had endless help from people on here, have been part of some very interesting discussions and learn new things every time I come on. With no friend nearby to quilt with and no suitable guild in my area, the Board is invaluable.

    I completely agree! I've been quilting for almost two years and have learned so much from the members on here....and for free!

    I have quilted for more than 30 years and yet I learn something new and useful every week. Such a great group of wonderful people. Generous in spirit and kind with words.

    I have been sewing most of my life and quilting for about 30 yrs but I have learned a great deal about making things easier on this board. You will always find a kind word here so I totally agree with you.
    A friend is someone who knows all about you and loves you anyway.

    Yes, the QB is how I start my day. I am fairly new to quilting and I have learned more here than in the classes i have taken. It is wonderful that it is world wide, a camaraderie of quilters willing to help each other - how wonderful is that.

    I also find it absolutely fascinating at how "international" quilting is and how quilters seem to be so willing to help in all ways. I have even noticed many go out of their way to Google sites and find answers for other members.
    Many other forums could take a leaf out of Quilting Board's members generosity and helpfulness. I also love it that there are no arguments or "put" down remarks, everything is just so positive.
    My favourite forum site - can't ya tell. :-)
    Thanks everyone
