    Greetings from Houston

    Hi, I'm new here and thought I'd introduce myself. I'm Patrice and I'm located in Houston, TX. I've been here for over 30 years now and love it. I've sewn for most of my life and was introduced to quilting thru wearable arts 12 or 15 years ago.

    In addition to sewing, I have 3 dachshunds who I love and are often incorporated into my work. My husband and I show cars. I have a 66 Mustang and a 2011 Corvette Z06. He has a 34 Ford Street Rod (think ZZ Top car only black with flames) and 2008 Toyota Xrunner. All my hobbies and working too don't leave as much time as I'd like for my sewing, but I get up to the sewing room as much as I can. I'm so glad I found this board!

    I take 2 days off work every year to go to Quilt Festival. It's wonderful! In the old days when I had more time, I used to take the whole week off and take classes and attend Festival. Sadly, I just don't have time to do that now. Maybe in a few years I can retire and spend more time sewing and at Festival.

    You really should go. It's the most amazing collection of quilts and quilting vendors. So much too see and the classes are awesome, too. But you do need to check out the classes ahead of time. They fill fast. The class schedule for 2013 is here You should be able to find all the info you need there also.

    PM me if you have any questions, I've done Festival for about 15 or 20 years now every year so I'm pretty well versed on what you need to know.

    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
