    Hello from sunny California

    Hi all,

    I'm new here. I found this forum from a post on Reddit I made. I'm also new to quilting & sewing too. I recently got two old sewing machines that were practically in the trash that I took in and decided to play with, plus I've always wanted a sewing machine! The resources here have been great... I got one machine up and running (for the most part, needs a new foot and have to find out a slight creak) and I'm working on hopefully rewiring the motor for the other. Anyway, look forward to making more posts here, asking questions, and hopefully start making cool things!

    Welcome from So. Cal (too)! If you have not gone to the Road to CA in Ontario in January - set your calendar now, it's wonderful. We have the San Diego Quilt Show coming up Aug. 29-31.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Waving hello from Seattle.

    I spent a number of years rescuing and repairing old sewing machines that were then dispersed through a charity. I love a good solid machine and have spent most of the last 30 years sewing on a machine that is older than I am.

    Almost a year ago a friend gifted me with one of her modern Berninas she replaced. Oh my, I do love the bells and whistles -- but I still love me my vintage machines!
