    Hi, I'm Terri from Michigan. I have been quilting for 25 years or so. Retired Cosmetology Instructor. Love this site. Last year we came home from a two week vacation to 4 feet of water in our basement. My whole quilting room was destroyed along with 5 machines. 2 sewing, a baby lock embroidery. Janome long arm quilter, and a serger along with my Grace quilter and my stash. I was heartbroken and am now finally getting back on my feet. I was able to get 1 sewing machine and a long arm last year after the flood and hubby is getting an embroidery machine for me for Christmas which should arrive any day. I love looking at all your work. So many beautiful quilts. Thanks for having me.

    Welcome, from Manitoba, Canada. That is just heartbreaking seeing those pictures and all those machines. I really hope you can enjoy quilting again.

    Welcome from Oregon! Glad to hear things are getting put back together for you. Anxious to hear more about your new machine. It would be fun to have an embroidery machine.

    Bless your heart. I would have had to turn around and cry. I know you did your share. I hope the home owners covered something. Basements just scare me. Where does the water come from that floods so many basements. Looks like you had a really beautiful sewing room. I am so sorry this happened.
    Welcome to the Quiltingboard. I am glad you joined us.

    Ours came from the sump pump, all clean water not sewage, but still ruined everything. We lost about 40,000.00 and insurance only covered 10,000.00. Needless to say, walls, furnace and hot water tank. I had hard wood floors too. Had to put down vinyl, but wood grain. Also all my saw's and exercise things, treadmill, elipitical, weight's. whole lot's of stuff we used alot.
