    Hello to all! I am new to this forum and am happy to be here.


    Hi, I have been attempting to learn how to sew above and beyond the basics I learned in 4-H, many, many years ago. I have 2 older machines and plenty of material, from 2 close relatives who were super quilters and have since passed away. I have been trying to learn from books and the 'Net! I always have questions and am always looking for new ideas. So I am looking forward to learning from you!

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

    First off welcome to the forum from Corpus Christi, Texas. I only quilted a few things in the past and having had no real experience with a machine (just little here and there) my DH taught me more than anyone and one day I had the machine working and just did a couple blocks on the wonky side, then played/practiced some actual quilting (SITD). This board is an encyclopedia of quilting information from maintenance to repairs to patterns and tutorials. Everyone runs across a link to share (those you want to bookmark or add to your favorites). Sharing short cuts, so much and before you know it you will have a quilt made. Have fun because I know you will.

    Welcome from NJ. A self-taught quilter here as well. Watched lots of Alex Anderson on HGTV when I started. Everyone here is very friendly and helpful so just ask away when you have questions.
