    Sometimes it's the simple things in life.......

    Last month I was contacted via pm by another local board member inventing me to Monday sit and sews located in one of the local quilt stores, to meet her, connect with other quilters, and do some sewing well today I was finally able to attend. I am very glad I went I met some very nice ladies that welcomed me, I will be attending again hopefully regularly.

    It was so nice of her to reach out to a complete stranger and ask me to join them. It was a simple sweet gesture one that made my day.

    Yes, it is nice, isn't it!?
    A quilt is like a good life. It's full of mistakes, but, in the end, it looks pretty good.

    Meeting other QBees is SUCH a blessing and blast!

    Virginia Qbees meet a few years ago in Harrisonburg at the VA Quilt Museum for a day of viewing, eating, show and tell, visiting, and shopping. It was so much fun and several of us have stayed in touch, doing a workshop together each spring.

    Everybody needs to try this at least once!

    isn't that great.
    today I went to a bee with people I met here.
    Saturday, i'm meeting fellow members at a show.
    I think this board is just fantastic.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Members of this board are so generous -- a friend and I were invited to go on a bus trip to the Des Moines quilt show last October, and to stay in an individuals home before and after the bus trip so we didn't have additional expenses. All this from a wonderful lady I met here! When we met it was like seeing an old friend!

    Yes, I have met two wonderful friends through QB. Had the pleasure of meeting Jennie Penny in person this past September. I have also become close friends with Caswews. She surprised me with a phone call not too long ago. They will both be forever friends to me.

    Our LQS is having a Saturdays in March sewing meeting. We attend when we can and they supply the fabric to make charity quilts. I have met some very nice people. (I never met a quilter that I didn't like.) I have finished two quilts and on Saturday will begin a third. Great way to while away this awful winter.

    That is awesome,

    Looks like a few people have become friends and met IRL. It's a good way to meet new people.

    I met a very nice lady on this board who as it turned out lived about 10 minutes from me. We met for lunch a couple of years ago and it's like we were separated at birth. Same likes and dislikes and love sewing and quilting. Great way to find people in your town you didn't know!!
