    Hi, I am Kim! New to this site and pretty new to quilting. I am trying to make more time in my life for quilting, because it makes me so peaceful and happy! I am 44 and a stay at home mom of two boys, 17 and 21. Not many people in my area quilt, so I am looking forward to connecting with other like-minded women! :D

    Hi Kim Marie,
    I'm new to quilting, too. I think I have become addicted to quilts...lol. I'm 53 and live in Ohio. I am homemaker and was a stay at home mom, too. But, my kids are adults and out of the house now. (A daughter that's 33 and a son that is almost 24.) It's nice to meet you. Happy Quilting!
    Debbie

    I used to live in the Twin Cities area. Have you considered joining the MN Quilter's Guild? Here is their website:

    Glad Creations is a fun quilt shop in Minneapolis.

    If you want to reply to just one person, it is called "private messages" or pm. Click on the person's name by their avatar. That will take you to their profile page. Then click on PM and you can communicate with just that one person, and not the whole board.

    Hi Kim - welcome to the board - this place is great! I'm also from MN - southwest of MPLS - a little town called Jordan - south of Shakopee and the MN Renaissance Festival. You'll get lots of ideas, suggestions and help from the board members - they're all terrific people - male & female!

    I'm all for it! It sounds like most of us are around the Cities... I'll help in whatever way I'm capable!

    Hi from Iowa, I can almost walk across the MN border, only 4 miles for me. I love the board and hope you do too.

    Hi Kim, I'm from Ham Lake, just north of the cities. I'm in Mesa Az for the winter at an RV park where over 100 quilters meet every Thursday. I think a MN get together would be fun.

    Hi Kim,

    I'm from the Excelsior area! You'll love this board, so many friendly quilters. I'm a new quilter too and get so many great ideas from this board!

    Hi, welcome from Blaine. I think it'd be great if we Minnesotans could get together.

    Hi Kim! I'm new here too and haven't even introduced myself yet....I'm in Tennessee now, but from Michigan originally.
    Everyone here seems so nice - and so so so smart, creative, busy, wonderful....need I go on? lol
    Heather, I think the reason there are so many quilters from Minnesota might be cause in Minnesota you need so many quilts?

    What type of get-together would people like?
    Would maybe a bus-tour be fun?! Organize a tour of the best LQS's in the twin cities... and go visit them! (obviously let them know we'd be coming... teehee! Can you imagine faces otherwise?!) ...maybe a potluck lunch... all we'd have to pay for is the chartered bus... maybe stay at a hotel and get up and sew or do a group activity the next day... I don't know. I'm just throwing ideas out there.
    I'd be happy to help organize something, but I'm probably the least-experienced quilter on this board... :lol:

    Hi, I'm in St. Cloud ! Are you MN folks going to the MN Quilter's Show in St. Cloud on June 17 - 19? That might be a place where we could meet. I'll be there on Saturday.
