    Hello from England

    Hi, I'm Janet. I live in North Yorkshire.

    I am absolutely hooked on sewing. I love dressmaking, patchwork and quilting.

    I'm married with two amazing daughters. My current project is a quilt for my younger daughter's room. In between doing that I'm making some clothes for myself.

    Welcome from a true Michigander living in Tennessee USA. Love the UK and have enjoyed visiting there. You are very blessed to have daughters to sew for and being able to make clothing for yourself. I am without in both areas so had to go into quilting to enjoy sewing. Welcome again.
    God Bless Quilters and Sewers

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

    Welcome from a Brit living in Virginia! My late Dad was born near Sheffield. My research on quilting in UK goes back to pre-medieval times when padded armor type garments were used prior to metal armor; women also wore under petticotes which were quilted. This proved to be an interesting journey! I too love to quilt and have finished one piece based on William Morris's art nouveau designs.
