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.
