    I'm brand new to this forum. I live in the Sandhills of NC, south of Raliegh. I've been a quilter for 20 + years. I am currently a "lone" quilter. I tryed the local quild, and decided not to go back. They bicker like teenagers. I am very interested in some one to talk to about quilts, learning more about making, caring for and decorating with quilts.
    I'm currently trying to reduce my stash. I'm making rail fence quilts to give at Christmas.

    Welcome from Alaska! That's a really pretty quilt using that fabric. I know what you mean about some guilds--some are very cliquey. We are all in this to enhance our quilting skills and to share. I love to see what others are doing and also where people are from etc. I love to sew with groups but I also like to spend time alone sewing and quilting. This forum is packed full of info.

    Helloooooo there! That's the exact reason I don't venture into a guild...I'm kinda sensitive to that very situation. Bickering, gossiping, all that stuff. Welcome to paradise!

    I live an hour from Raleigh. I usually got to Plain and Simple if I can. World of Bernina services my machine. They make appts for out of town customers, and service my machine while I shop. It's due in several months. Lunch maybe??

    I am sure you will love this group. I joined only about 2 weeks ago but feel at home already. I am sure you will enjoy it immensley. There is SO MUCH info and beautiful pictures on here. I doubt I will ever catch up. Welcome from southeastern Idaho. p.s. The QG here is really great but I did try one in another state that was that clicky kind.

    Welcome from the CA desert. That's why I don't go to the local guilds. You will find good people here!
