    I have been collecting some old sewing/ quilting photos from sites on line and wanted to share them with you.

    Thanks for posting these, Janice. I love old pictures. I can't imagine how they could do such lovely work with poor lighting and so much other stuff to do.

    I love these pictures. My grandmothers quilted this way - the frame took up so much room - but it was their social time. Great memories.

    I love your pictures. I also have a picture of some ladies at a quilting bee. My great grandmother that I was named after is in the photo, (unfortunately she was not quilting at the time of the photo, but standing on the right in the back) I really love this photo. Really gives me that connection with my great grandmother.

    sorry for the flash, its the best i could get without removing it from the frame

    What cool old pics. I always wondered why no one smiles in them.
