    Hi - my name is Jayne and I'm an obsessive about all things quilts. I've been quilting for about 9 years and have made about 50 quilts, none of them masterpieces but all of them loved (or so I'm told by the recipients!)
    I joined the forum because, although I have a couple of friends who quilt, neither of them live close, so I often feel isolated in a quilting sense. :cry: I'm hoping that I can now log on and chat to like-minded people whenever I want to.
    I am married to Stephen, who is really supportive of my quilting though he worries about where I will find the room to store the next load of fabric that arrives in the post! We have 4 cats and a pretty little house, full of quilts.
    I hope this is the start of a really exciting adventure, being part of the forum.

    Welcome Jayne, from a UK exile, living in Ireland. I hope you like it here, I have found it very friendly, and enormously helpful if you have any questions. Where are you exactly?

    welcome Jayne from Ontario, Canada. I have been quilting for about 2 years, just call me Newbie. Quilting is addictive, but I love it!

    Hello Jayne...I am a Devon girl transplanted quite happily in Perth Western Australia....

    I am pretty new to this site too and find it a friendly, supportive and interesting place to visit. There is no end of inspiration on these "pages" and the creativity, kindness and generosity is astounding. Welcome..the more the merrier!

    I am based in Slough, in Berkshire, which isn't the prettiest part of the UK but I can walk to Windsor from my house and it's convenient for my daily commute to London.
    Thanks for all your welcomes - I already feel at home!

    There are a few other UK quilters here, and some that live elsewhere too. You will notice them as you find your way around. I was born in Hertfordshire, but spent the last 24 years in Norfolk before I moved here.
