    I decided I needed to clean up my e-mail inbox today and went to the last page and found an e-mail from Konstantin Quilter's Board from October 25, 2007. So I lurked/read incognito for over two years before joining on January 17th, 2010.

    Am I the only one who did this? I finally joined because I wanted to comment on a posting. It would be interesting to know why you joined too.

    I jumped in and joined right away after I read a few posts because I knew I could learn a lot from the quilters here. (As a bonus, they are all sooo friendly and I am loving it here)

    I joined immediately- I was so excited to find this site! I also wanted to introduce myself right away.

    I am always telling people what a great site this is and recommending that others join.

    I think I just looked around for a couple of months first. This was the first forum that I'd ever joined, and I wanted to make sure that I spent some time learning the "rules of the road".

    About six months of lurking ... actually joined right away, but didn't start commenting until six months later. Watching the caring and sharing that goes on ... definitely a group worth being part of. I am not yet active in the PIF stuff yet, as I still have projects of my own that I need to get done. Perhaps in another six months?!

    I lurked for nearly 3 1/2 years before I jumped in. I joined because someone was looking for some fabric and I just happened to have it. Now they can't get rid of me!! LOL!!

    Funny you should ask this. I joined right away but foolishly forgot to introduce myself. Instead I asked something, which isn't the proper way to start but that was awhile ago so I'm not too concerned at this point.
    Sometimes when a new person just starts asking questions I realize I did the same thing~! lol
    Live and learn!!

    About 15 minutes I think. I'm just too mouthy to keep quiet very long.

    I joined right away, but evidently I didn't follow protcol either. I had a comment I wanted to make about using poly fabrics. I guess I am just mouthy enough I want to have my say. lol

    I think it was about the same for me, at least a couple of years. I was introduced to the site by my friend who started me on my quilting journey. But it took me a while to feel like I had anything to offer. If I had questions, I asked her. I never introduced myself, just joined and jumped right in. :-D :-D

    This site was recommended to me. I joined on my first visit. It is so active and there is something for everyone here. My favorite discussions are the tutorials and pictures. Although I have added to "chit-chat" a few times and have joined the BOM and the applique BOM.

    I come here every morning now with my cup of tea...........

    I lurked for about four months until my husband convinced me to join because he always heard me saying how nice everyone was on here. I don't know why I didn't sign up right away, probably because he had to show me how to set up my avatar!
