    Hi everyone,

    I joined in December but misplaced the link. Lucky for me, my 4yr old was playing with the keyboard today and must have clicked on an old bookmark.

    *POOF* As if by magic up popped this message board. I'm thrilled to start reading through the posts. Thanks for having me!

    My name is Matt and I'm a long arm quilter from Canada. I need some inspiration to make more tops rather then just doing the quilting. I think I found the right place. I'll be back in the morning to browse the topics. Looks like you guys(girls) are busy on here :)

    Welcome Matt. This is a busy board and you will find lots of inspiration. Be sure to check out the picture files.

    Also, please consider posting some of your pictures. I'd like to see your work too.

    Hello ManQuilter & welcome from NE Alabama. Yes, we have a lot of conversation & one of my favorite men on the Board is Eddie from Arkansas, who has made 25 plus quilts since last May when he started. Look above to find the Search Button in the second row, go there & type in Eddie. You'll see some of his posts & his beautiful quilts. We're all real proud of him, as you will read. There are other men, too, so I'm sure they'll be posting if they see this. There are a lot of us women folk in all age ranges. Skill levels vary, but the intent of this Board is to give each other support, make each other feel welcome & make suggestions when another Member asks. Lots of quilters will post pics when they're having problems & ask for help & ideas. There are different swaps, Block of the Month Club info, etc. Take a tour & you'll catch on quick. Nice to have you.

    Matt, I went to your profile & saw that you have the Live Video Lessons for long arm machine.......you are professional! I had no idea last night when I replied to this thread how talented you are. Hope others will click on Matt's Profile & go check out his site, ManQuilter.com. I do good to Emb Machine/sewing machine quilt and Hand Quilt. Oh how I'd love to have a long arm machine. So glad to have you here.
