    Hi,

    I thought this would be fun to start this thread about being an addict on this Quilting board site and also the live chat addict.

    I sure spend alot of time on this site, # 1 quilting site in the world.

    I want to thank the creators of this site and the administrators for all of the hard work to run a smooth site for all of us to enjoy.

    When I am reading the posts I see alot are on all times of the day and night. Wow we must be addicts!

    I am enjoying this site and sure makes me happy to be able to chat with other quilters all over the world. I have also chatted with some on live chat, instant messaging and met in person.

    Let me introduce myself, Karen "Craftybear" and I live in Indiana, USA. My birthday is November 15, 1956. I love to make all types of crafts. crochet, some knitting, spinning, fiber, needle felting, weaving, sewing, quilting and learning to use my embroidery machine Janome 10001. I also paint in oils, acrylics, water color and pen and ink.

    I love surfing to find cool links to share with others so I created some blogs to store the links on so others around the world can enjoy them as much as I do. I am known as the surfing queen!

    I love the tutorials on this site!

    Thanks again and hope to meet more quilters around the world.

    Karen

    I come here several times a day. I love to see what everyone has made, its a hand into the outside world for me with every day life stories (so much better than the newspaper which is always oh so filled with fun depressing tales of woe). Here you have real people.. moms, dads, grandparents, pony owners, cat lovers, dog pals.. you have the whole gammet of life at your fingertips and .. we know for a fact we all have one thing in common .. our love to create beautiful things. So an addict? Sure.. no calories and lots of smiles and inspirations.

    I'm a board addict for sure. I check in several times a day.

    Live chat seems a bit slow to me. I seldom drop in there.

    I'm not an addict, no way! I'm not a quilt-a-holic either! (stifles a airy laugh)

    I pop in & out of the forums, and nites I'm 2 lazy 2 do things I chat. Then there are times I don't come around the board for days.

    both, kinda/sorta ! I love PalTalk to talk. I have some wonderful friends there and we share trivia and have been actual friends and relatives for a long time. BUT this has to be ther ultimate in chatting. Two addictions in ONE! Paltalk is almost as obsolete to me now as Pow Wow is.

    I'm a board addict for sure. I check this board more often than I do my facebook!
    I gave up playing Farmville, and Farmtown because I didn't have time to play them on FB. I am on here instead! Much more informative, educational and such an encouragement on all aspects from quilting, other issues and to life in general.
    This is a great place to spend time - even if the house does get a bit dusty from time to time.
    Love it here.

    This is the first place I check in the morning, come back many times a day and at the end of the day. At least until I go back to work (two weeks from today) this will be my addiction.

    I don't think I'm addicted. I do sleep sometimes. But I do love dropping in to see what everyone's up to. None of my friends/relatives that I hang out with quilt or sew, so it's the only place I can get any quilting talk. I like the fact that it's always home when I want to visit. And if I don't feel like joining in, I don't have to. Nobody holds it against me or asks me what's wrong.

    Not an addict. Yet. But I do lurk a lot!
    And I don't turn my pc off, so it always shows me as "online".

    I guess i am cause i am on here daily, several times a day and i do get on the chat often. I travel w/dh for his job so i do not work and this occupies my time and i love looking at all the awesome work everyone does. And I have met several of the board members in person which has been a blast. and hope to continue to meet up with members thru out my travels.

    I love this place! I go into chat quite a bit and love seeing all the pictures people put here. There is a ton of information here and everyone is as friendly as you would expect quilters to be.

    Yes, I am an addict!

    I am definitely addicted. I have to check this site at least 2 or 3 times a day. I have withdrawals when I can't check out what everyone is doing. I spend more time with everyone here on this board than I do with my husband. LOL.

    I am definitely addicted. I check first thing in the am, often during my breaks during the day, and more than once in the evening. In fact, I really need to get off now and go start on a baby quilt I really need to get done. :lol:

    I am addicted, I check on here to see what is the latest going on and comment on some of the subjects and peoples quilts. I am not on as much as it appears because I forget to log out. I go on here at work when I have nothing to work on and late at home on the weekends after I have been sewing,laundry,housework. If I forget to log out there, it may seem that I am online around the clock, but, I'm not.

    I guess I'm addicted to the board. I checked out the live chat, but felt like I was coming into the middle of a conversation. I love this board. I check it many times a day to see what's going on. It's so educational. That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)

    You can just jump right into conversation in the chat room. Most everyone there welcomes who ever comes in next. Be sure to come back into chat, the more the merrier! :D

    Olivia's Gramy, I am on dial up and hesitated for a long time to 'use' chat. It seemed difficult and I too, worry about interrupting.
    I have since learned that ppl in chat, know that the door is open and the open and welcome signs are 'out', and that at any moment, someone new can appear, and they have no clue what was being discussed, so it's quite alright to just jump in.
    If the topic is really important, ppl will say hi, and keep talking to that person that needs their response.
    If it's not that big a deal, a new subject is certainly welcome and ppl just roll with it all.
    I tend to be a bit chatty, but I do that, hoping that others will follow my cue, to just come out of their corners.
    Sometimes I will notice names, but that person not talking and will ask them something, so they will feel included.
    I hope this mouse never makes anyone feel anything other than included:XD:
    I do tend to get rather excited at the prospect of so many to talk to. Like a smorgasbord. Meeces love smorgasbords. :mrgreen:

    I love this board. Like many of you, I check in first thing in the morning and then check back several times during the day.

    I'm addicted. I check in several times a day - before and after work. Love looking at the pics. Spend so much time staring at the screen that I don't get as much sewing done as I used to!

    Like Olivia's Gramy, I popped into Live Chat very briefly on a couple of occasions when I first joined. Haven't tried it again.
