    Hi There from Portland, Oregon USA:
    My name is Becky and I am a self taught Quilter. I enjoy it alot, though I must admit lately I have not been at my sewing machine. I have started an applique quilt. It has cats on it so have been carefully working on the cats, but I am at a tough spot. When I get to those places I put it down to think about it for awhile. I am a sewer and have been for years. I actually started as a tailor for mens wear. When I found quilting I was hooked. I love pieceing the best, but have ventured into other parts of quilting. I also enjoy foundation pieceing. I am not real new to this site, but I don't get here real often. I like to talk with people about quilting. Would like to converse if you want to? You can talk to me here or at my e-mail address. [email protected] Talk to you later. :-D

    Welcome from the heart of Texas. I'm a grandma too but my grandkids are in their thirties now. I found this site about two months ago and just beginning to learn my way around but have learned so much.

    I go to the LQS or for the cheaper fabrics to the market. Also I order a lot in the UK. I order almost never in the US because then I have to pay a lot of shippingfees and here a big amount on taxes! Because UK is also Europe I don't have to bother about taxes at all.
    Switzerland lies in Europe but doesn't belong to the European Union, so I think you have to pay tax too even if your fabric is from UK?

    Hi Maksi

    I have to pay taxes where ever I shop. They do punish us for not being an EU member. The funniest part are postal fees. A parcel from Germany (I live a ten minutes drive from the border) send to Switzerland costs the same amount than send to Swaziland!?
    A lot of stuff is not available in Switzerland and if, it is three times as expensive than in US. So I can live with the shipping cost.
    It is just hard to wait three weeks for your stuff..........
