    This is an awesome place! Lots of talented sewers/quilters! Thanks for letting me in. I hope to learn to quilt, maybe even find someone in PA (Berks/Lancaster Co.?) who would be a mentor. For now I am experimenting on my own. So far I made two crazy quilt blocks, got stumped and turned them into something else. Had to be there, lol. Not giving up, yet. Looking forward to hearing from anyone!

    Hello! And welcome! :-)

    There's people of ALL skill levels here, so don't fret. :-)

    I have to tell you... I met a guy from Pennsylvania once, and me and my big mouth I blurted out "wow, isn't that where Dracula is from?!?"

    When he stopped laughing he pointed out it was TRANSylvania I was thinking of.

    I told him I was Australian as an excuse! ;-)

    Thanks for the welcome, Blue Chicken - and the story! It was amusing. My daughter went to Australia/New Zealand for two weeks when she was 13 through People to People International. She says it was wonderful, and ever since, she hopes to be able to return some day! (She's 20 now...) See you around!

    Good morning to you too, and thanks for the welcome! Home of Robin Hood? Made me laugh. Couldn't sleep here - the Mad Snorer is at it again. Nice to have some "company." Eventually I hope to chat. I'm sure I will have lots of questions!

    LOL - I have one of those snore monsters too - whereabouts are you in Penn, did you say near Lancaster is that an Amish area?

    Oh my goodness... we have "the boonies" too... I never knew it was a world wide phrase! LOL Another name for it is "out in the wop wops". No idea where that originated from.


    *QuilterWannabee*, what time is it there? It's 8:35pm here. I'm about to send the kids to bed and have some peace and quiet! :-)

    BC, that was always my favorite time, when everyone else was in bed.
    Now I have an empty nest, and can't sleep!

    God does have a sense of humor :wink:

    Welcome from NE CA. Glad you joined us. There's lots of friendly, talented people on board who are willing to help in any way, just ask. I'm sure there's bound to be someone in PA who will help.

    Howdie Neighbor. I am right down the road in Mifflin County, by PSU. You have TONS of resources in your area. I am sure you will be able to find a guild or more help might just be a neighborhood group. Go to one of the thousand or so quilt shops there and get the quilters road guide. (can't remember the name exactly) It will lay out all kinds of options for you. But the fact that you are smack dab in the middle of PA quilt mecca should help. Welcome

    Thanks for the welcome, Ninnie! I have heard "boondocks," too. It's all good.

    I am about a half hour from Lancaster, and yes, it is an area with an Amish population.

    Ninnie - LOL, in the wee a.m. hours I was trying to put some distance between myself and the sounds of the Mad Snorer ZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzz. Between that and "hot flashes" there was no sleep for the weary.
