    So I'm fairly new to this quilting board and my name is Ronda (without an H). I recently met another "Rhonda" (with the H) on here, who happens to live 15 minutes from me! How cool is that? We've met up and although she's skinny and cute, I still like her! LOL! Today, we're going to a Shop Hop being sponsored in the area and plan on having a great quilt experience! "To Wanda!"

    Isn`t it fun. I met a quilter who lives 30 min away and we`ve hit it off so well. She is joining my guild!
    Also met one in Michigan we stop at every time we cross the border now.
    Have fun shopping with you new quilting buddy!

    This board has brought a lot of people together! Isn't it so much fun to meet someone close to you that also has the same interest as you?

    Isn't it fun to meet other quilters. I met one from this site just this week. We live close together and I met her at a guild meeting. I was the visitor. BTW - I love the quilt in your avatar.

    Thank you Cindy! I started with a center and just kept going...it was a gift for my DD for her birthday.

    Thanks ladies! I completely forgot to take my camera! We had a blast though and spent waaay too much money. Next time we'll have to take pictures!

    Almost six years ago, I escaped an abusive marriage, moved away from where I had lived all my life and married my High School sweetheart !!New Life...needed New Friends... I've met so many good friends through quilting! In fact tomorrow I am going with a quilter I met on Facebook, to another Facebook Quilter Friends house 6.5 hrs away, to attend The Gees Bend Exhibit in London ONT! I have friends from all over the world that I met through quilting. Even been to Australia to meet up with quilter friends and hope to go to New Zealand in the next couple of years!!

    I just recently met someone on here who lives where I used to live. Seems we have a lot in common. It's just to bad she doesn't live closer, we could go shopping. I don't have anyone down here that quilts. Trying to get my sister-in-law interested, but I'm not sure about that. I had such fun material shopping with friends long ago.

    I haven't met anybody here who lives nearby, but I've met a couple of quilters here who I became sort of penpals with.
