    I just took a new job and will be relocating to the Winston-Salem area in August. I am very excited. My DH will be following in time - our last child starts college in the fall and so we will have two in college in NY this year. We want to make sure that he transitions into college well before DH leaves.

    He also has to transition his job and sell our house, so we may have a commuter marriage for a while but we're ok with that. I am looking forward to finding new quilting buddies, and hope that some of you may be among them!

    And I probably need to find a new name for myself on here. :lol:

    You will love the that area of NC. I taught at Rockingham CC for 4 years and just loved it there. You can go to the ocean or the mountains in no time at all.

    Good luck,

    NC is a great state. Going to W-S in 3 weekends for a scrapbooking convention. Great quilting state too. We have an annual symposium where 450 quilters attend.

    I don't know how big a city you are moving from but Winston-Salem is a great place. I go there to shop, and especially pick up Gloria Jean's ice coffee mix. A lot of nice eating places. You'll have to visit Old Salem. We often took our school children down there.

    I live in Statesville, NC less than an hour from west of Winston-Salem. We've got two quilt shops in Statesville and two in Mooresville just minutes from here! I moved from FL to NC in 97 and love it here! I'm sure you will too!

    Once you've settled in, take a trip to Mary Jo's Fabric Store, in Gastonia.

    The carolina's are fabulous. Moved down here with my hubby and kids from N.Y. many years ago. Only problem here is that there are too many beautiful days and feel guilty for wanting to stay in and quilt. So when it rains ...... Enjoy the transition!
