    I am a retired lady that has been quilting for the past 10 years, learning a lot more than I will ever be able to put into much use. When I started out I wanted to do it all.......LOL.....over the last couple of years I have settled into mostly piecing, paper piecing, and machine applique. The hand work does make my hands ache. However, I do enjoin embroider and am in the process now of doing some stuff for Christmas. I like to listen to audio books on my MP3 player and I do this while hand stitching. My DH is also retired and seems to like only TV so I spend most of my time at the machines. Thank God for my hobby.
    I look forward to learning and just enjoying you folks here. I do belong to another quilting forum at another site and it has been great inspiration for me.

    Hello, and welcome from Missouri! :lol:
    When I saw Galt, I thought of Ayn Rand's book, Atlas Shrugged. Guess it is time for a re-read. :?

    Greetings from outside Sacramento. That's not too far away, is it? We have quite a large contingent of Northern CA quilters on this board.

    Which ones do you attend?

    Every season I go to Auburn, Grass Valley, Yuba City, Sacramento, and I usually pick one or two different ones. The challenge for me is not to visit the vendors or not to buy the store - lol
