    I am looking for someone who lives close to West Pains, or even Sringfield that would be willing to help me learn to hand quilt. Our LQS isn't going to be teaching it nor are they interested in HQ. I have also purchased the Aunt Becky system, needle thimmble, hoop, book, etc. I just can't get the hang of it. I used to be a beautiful hand quilter 25 yrs. ago then I got into my business & haven't hand quilted since.I would be willing to pay you, come to your location , I am desparate!!!!!! Can you tell???? I am so frustrated with myself. Any one who can help???? Thanks, Donna, The Rustic Quilter

    Just had to say "Hi"...if you find someone to show you that aunt Becky system let me know. I'd like to see it in action! Might even try it myself! Take care!

    There are some great videos on YouTube: that's how I learned how. That, plus hours of trying and erring and sore fingers, but I did finally "get it."

    Jory, Thanks for rresponding. I have tried & tried. I have the video almost memorized LOL. I tend to be too much of a perfectionest, I really think this is my problem. My hubby & kids say I have OCDC. But of course I think they are wrong. I would really like to be able to sit down with someone. I had a guy come here to spray the house for bugs & he saw my quilting & told me his Mom & Grandma quilt everyday & they live near by. Guess what I am thinking??? I guess I will just have to call them. LOL Do you use the Aunt Becky's? Thanks for the encouragement. Guess I am just too impatient. I want to quilt perfectly NOW. Donna, The Rustic Quilter.

    Donna, I don't live near you but I am so sad that your LQS isn't interested in teaching it. Wow, times are changing :(
    Have you considered a quilt group where you live?? There has to be someone somewhere!!
    Good luck :)

    Have you tried a church group? I don't live close, but I hand quilt with the ladies from my church. I know there are hand quilters in that area.
    Maybe this thread is in the wrong category. Could be in MAIN.

    Susan Margaret, yes, it is sad that this shop doesn't want to teach hand quilting. Said they tried before & no one was interested. Saw you are from Ohio. That is my home state. Where in Ohio are you. We are from Gallipolis, down by the river. Thanks, Donna, The Rustic Quilter

    Shemjo, No I haven't tried a church group. Good idea. We just moved here 2 yrs. ago Ours does not have such a group. How do I get this thread into the main. I am new to this thread & any help would be appreciated. Thanks, Donna, The Rustic Quilter.

    I am just a few hours from you and I do hand quilt without a hoop or frame. I would love to get together with you and show you what I know. It would be great to see you quilting again.

    PM me if interested.
