    Is there a glossary somewhere here?

    I'm new to quilting and have learned so much from reading the messages on this forum. Sometimes, however, I run across something I can't figure out. Is there a glossary somewhere with the acronyms and abbreviationsm and terms that people use in their messages. For example:

    FMQ?
    Red Work?

    I'm cure there are other terms, but those two come to mind first. And I'm also sure I'm not the first newbie to scratch her head and wonder.....!

    Thanks.

    FMQ - free motion quilting

    Red work is embroidery with red thread on white fabric, as was popular 100 years ago.

    take a look at this thread for more help.

    I had to use that link that Ptquilts posted when I first joined the QB. I think that everyone is lost at first!

    My initials are BB, so dublb is double B.
