    Hello From Queensland Australia

    Hi Everyone, I from Queensland, Australia the land of sunshine, beaches, g'days, and howyagoins. I have 3 grown and flown babies-2 daughters and a son - and 3 Grand-babies - 2 girls and a boy - ranging in age from almost 7 to 15.
    I am, as I imagine you all are, mad about quilting. Just love it, I have a stash that is now exceeding 2 very large rooms, and I'm having problems finding enough room under beds for bins to slide under. I'm sure you know how it is, visit a town with a quilt shop and go home several loads heavier.
    I've been making patchwork quilts for the best part of the last 12 years and to date am still inspired to reach for the rotary cutter whenever I see anything with a white background. I also do quite a bit of machine embroidery and have done many quilts - mostly kids ones- incorporating cute embroidery designs and personalising them.
    I love love love quilting fabric, especially the pre-cuts...1 day I plan on buying a AccuQuilt Studio.....and I am not afraid to admit that 99.9% of my fabric is bought from the US as I am not always so fussed by our prices here in Australia. The US range and selection is so far better to what is available to me here.
    Well that's about it about me, really is a brain drain telling about oneself, I'm sure my husband could go on for pages and then some.
    Nice to meet you all and Thanks for having me

    Hi Lonnie, welcome from another Aussie I live in Perth. This is a great place for advice, help and hours of of enjoyment looking at all the fabulous pics and links. I agree completely with you about the fabric choices available to us here in Oz, and buy a lot of items from the US. I am off next month to LA for a holiday and am making a list of quilting shops to visit. Enjoy!!

    Lonnie,
    Nice to meet you. I'm really Traci. I live in New York state, about 90 minutes east of Niagara Falls. Or about 7 hours west of New York City. We have many similarities. I hope you enjoy this site.
    Go forth and sew!

    Hi Im new too...Im looking for new pals in Australia for friendship and sharing. Postage to the USA is too expensive for me at the moment. Like you I also shop online and have a ton of fabric.
    Hope we could be friends.
    Hugs from down the coast.
