    I've been on the board for a couple of weeks, but never did the "introduce yourself" so I thought I'd do that and say hello to everyone. I live in the upper peninsula of Michigan, just an hour from Canada. I've been quilting for over 30 years and I teach quilting classes when I get the opportunity! I've been enjoying all the posts - what a great group of ladies (and a few gents!)

    Welcome, Pamela. I reside 240 miles from The Soo. We hope to attend Engineer's Day at the locks the last Friday in June. :-)

    Hi from Tennessee, I used to live in the tri-city area and Harrison. Several years ago. I was reminded just how many years ago this week. My high school reunion is this year in June. I think they have the year wrong.

    Hi! I'm a Yooper, too! I live in Menominee. Nice to see you here.

    I've been to Newberry, but not since I was little. There is an institution there for people with psychiatric problems, or at least used to be, and growing up my mom would always say that we kids were going to "send her to Newberry".

    DH and I live in Iron Mountain with our fur baby. We're empty nestors with chilldren and grandchildren to visit :-) Sure wish they lived closer, but loved visiting family in Minneapolis this past week!

    It's starting to leave, a little at a time. We didn't get as much this year as last year. So it should be all gone sooner this year! Love these warmer temps!

    Yes, there used to be a psych hospital here, but it closed quite a few years ago. My quilting friend used to work there.

    Hi, I am new to this site too and to quilting.Welcome to the club. :>)
    I grew up in the center of the U.P. of Michigan!! I got tired of shoveling,pushing, and plowing the white stuff for so many monthes every year! But, I do miss the Summers there, and swimming in the lakes (there are no alligator gar fish in them - like in Texas)
    I am a transplant into Texas, but I love it!!! The snow only lasts a few days here!!:>)
