    Hello, newbie from SW Florida

    I'm a newbie to this board and to quilting. I've spent the last month or so browse the different forums and soaking up all your knowledge and tips. I really enjoyed admiring all the beautiful quilts. I hope yo one day be as good as all you.

    I took my first lessons in 2006, but in 2007 gave it up to go back to school. After I graduated in June 2010, I kept trying to start up again, but never seem to find the time. So, about a month ago, I decided I had to find the time.......and I did....yah!!!

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Hi Gail and welcome from New Hampshire.
    When I used to go to Marco in the winter there was a nice quilt shop in Naples - hope she's still in business.

    We have two good ones that I know of in Naples. We have a big one, which has a huge fabric selection, in Fort Myers.
