    Hello from New York/Scotland

    I've just moved to New York City from Scotland. I'll be here for 3 years and really want to learn about and do as much quilting as possible. Can anyone recommend a local quilters guild for me? I'll be living in Forest Hills, Queens. Thank you in advance!

    Welcome from Chicago, IL! I can't answer your question about quilting info in your locale but it is certainly nice to say Hello!

    Welcome from SC Texas. I hope you enjoy your stay in the U S and get a lot of quilting done. At least you can take the board with you wherever you go.

    Welcome to NY.. I don't know of any quilting guilds, as I don't have time to join. I can tell you that there is a wonderful fabric store in Astoria, which is not far from Forest Hills. If you Google fabric stores in Astoria, you will find the store I think on 30th st. I don't live in the area, as I live on Long Island. He sells all kinds of fabric, but has a bunch of cottons for $2.50 a yard that are amazingly decent, and has a bunch of batiks, and color washed. Hope you enjoy your stay here.

    Welcome from South Carolina/UK
    If you find a quilting/fabric store near your home you could ask them and I am sure they will be able to help you find a local guild.
