    Hello from Canada!

    Hello, I am new here. I have been sewing on and off (mostly off) for 15 years, but have always wanted to quilt. Now that my kids are older I've decided that I'm going to start. I've taken a couple of classes at Craftsy.com, and am already signed up for a few more. The thing I really need help to learn is FMQ. I have signed up to a Leah Day FMQ course and as soon as I complete some blocks I will start learning.

    Hi Bilben, I'm also new here, but it's nice to see more Canadians - there is a large mix of people here and all of them are pretty nice

    HI Bilben, good morning and welcome to the board from Tennessee. We are so glad to have you. You will find lots of board members who are also learning FMQ. I love the classes on Craftsy! The tutorials available to us there and at MSQ are great. Happy quilting!
