    Hello and welcome from SW FL. Don't worry about what the first one looks like. I think we all have one like that tucked away somewhere.

    Welcome from sort of central Alberta! I'm the opposite. I love quilting but am scared to try sewing garments as my first time wasn't enjoyable. :)

    Hello Ana!
    You've come to the right place for confidence and inspiration. There are so many people that are willing/wanting to help whenever you run into problems. Please give quilting another try! If nothing else, you'll make lots of friends! :)
    Welcome from Minnesota!

    Welcome from Ontario, Canada. Quilting has come a long way in a few short years. If you can, take a beginner class but if not you'll get lots of tips here. Check out the tutorials page on the QB and jump right in with something easy. Perhaps a 9 patch or if you're feeling adventurous a Disappearing 9 patch(DNP).

    Thank you all very much for the warm welcome and I have to tell you all right off the bat I will most likely be spending most of my time in the Vintage sewing machine room :D.

    Try it --you'll like it --as they say. Don't give up. I also do the vintage machines. Do you have any extra parts?
