    Hello from British Columbia, Canada

    I took up the hobby of quilting very late in life, but I'm enjoying it even though I have found it rather challenging at times. I have been looking at the photo gallery of all the beautiful quilts and I'm amazed at the talented quilters here. So, between learning a new hobby, a new computer and finding my way around the forum, I've been very busy. I have already printed out a few of the wonderful tutorials posted by some members - so thank you!

    Welcome from what's known as "north-central" BC, although if you look at a map, geographically we're smack dab in the center.

    Welcome from a fellow BC'r!! You will love this board - so much talent, support and inspiration! Judging by your name "RainyBC" you must be from the lower mainland!! I'm from "SnowyBC" in the mountains. LOL! Love your Avatar! Is that a life-jacket? My shelties like to come canoeing with us, but swim like rocks.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. Yes, I live in the lower mainland where it rains non-stop! My avatar is my little Shih Tzu Penny. The picture was taken during training time. She is wearing a little rain coat - mandatory when you live here. My son has an Australian Shepherd which looks very similar to your Sheltie.

    Hello and welcome from Ontario. This is a great place for information and inspiration. My son lives in the Vancouver area, so we've been to that beautiful place.
