    I love that I found this messae board. I have sewed since the early 1970's, and learned sewing after taking a Stretch & Sew class! I had just gotten out of college and had very little money. So I sewed an entire work wardrobe in stretchy fabric. I actually still have the book. I have only been quilting for 4 years and have so much more to learn. Besides quilting, I love to do cross stitch, sashiko, applique, collecting sewing machines, and going to quilt conventions!

    I had knee replacement surgery in March and have not been able to sew, but have bought lots of fabric on line! I am so anxious to get back to it. I have spent a lot of time on my computer and I stumbled upon this wonderful forum. I have enjoyed you guys so much that I decided to become a part of this great group!

    You are about as far west as you can be, and I am as far east as I can be. I live about a mile from the Idaho border.

    Welcome from Maine! We are the farthest East as you are West. Next year I'm hoping to get to Sisters, Oregon for their show. Ever been?

    No, I haven't been yet. But I do plan to go. I hear it is a lot of fun. I also hear that it gets so crowded it is hard to get from booth to booth, but that won't stop me from going.

    Go EARLY! It is truly amazing. I live about 70 miles west of Sisters, and go every other year. This is my year to go - WAHOOO :thumbup:
    Welcome aboard. I've learned more on this board in several months than I ever thought possible.

    Welcome from Alaska! I grew up in Oregon and we used to go camping at Sisters. Things have changed there a lot. Would love to take in the quilt show someday! Take pictures to share! :thumbup:

    Hello from Oregon. Have fun in Sisters. I was planning on going this year but my nephew chose that date to get married. I'd be in big trouble if I chose the quilt show over the wedding! But it is tempting :)
