    Hello...new to this forum... looking for a fellow member

    I have one friend who told me about this forum, but a few days ago I "met" a lady at the Houston airport who also mentioned it. I don't have a lot of info, but hoping it's enough to find and contact her. First name is Karen, lives in W VA, was a nurse (now retired). She was on her way to Dallas when we met up and got stuck in the airport for 8 hrs on a layover overnight last week (May 16th). We had a nice visit talking about sewing and machines, etc. Made the 8 hrs go by a lot faster. If anyone knows who she is beyond the info I posted above, let her know please?
    As for me, I've been quilting about 4 yrs, sewing more than 50 yrs. My main area of interest aside from that is vintage and antique machines - their repair, refurbishment and restoration. I collect as well. I've made one quilt from a pattern, all the others (about a dozen) I made from my own "pattern" (which is to say not really a pattern at all). I discovered quilting patterns and I do not play well together. I'm better at making them up as I go.

    Hello and welcome from Minnesota! Click on the "member list" at the top of this screen. You will have to go into each "Karen" to find one from West Virgina, but I bet you'll find her!! (usually people put where they are from when signing up on the QB.) Then you can click on her name and send her a personal message! Lots of luck!!!

    Welcome to the board from Spring, Texas. Wow what better way to kill time in the airport than talking about quilting and discovering the "Quilting Board". I sincerely hope you can find the Karen you met at the airport.

    I would probably put "West Virginia" in the search and see if you have better luck that way. Just click on "Advanced search" at the top of the page and type in West Virginia. There are a few threads there where members are seeking other members. Maybe ask one of them if they've come across any members from WV named Karen... Or post in "In Search of" and post right in the title. "Nurse Karen from WV met at airport". Good Luck! Never know...

    Welcome from Indiana -

    I like how you said 'quilt patterns and you don't play well together - I'm the same way! I would expect that though...I don't follow recipes exactly either. LOL -

    I agree with M.I.LATE's suggestion of posting a separate thread under "In Search Of".

    Welcome again! Nan
