    Hi there

    found your forum two days ago as I needed help and boy, I sure got it!
    As you can tell from my nick I am a grandma (two grandsons 3y and 7mt) and therefore also a mama (two daughters and a son, 28, 24, 26.)
    I live with my hubby in basle, switzerland.
    I (used to) know your country quit well as we lived from 1984 to 86 in Santa Barbara. Our youngest daughter was born there and after our stay there we travelled with a caravan and the three young ones for 7 month across canada and the usa. Best time in my life! Cant even say which area I loved the most, seen so many great places.
    I was sewing more or less my whole life and just a couple of weeks ago I accidently came to patchwork and was hooked from the first minute.
    Look now for hours at your great quilts and will sure bug you with lots of questions.

    greetings from switzerland

    Well welcome to the group you will love it here. Ask anything you want and you will get some great help and ideas. Check out the block of the months and the swaps they are a lot of fun. If you need anything just hawler. My family came from Switzerland I'd love to see it someday.

    Welcome to the board!

    Just two weeks? I saw a couple of pictures you posted. Surely you have been quilting longer than 2 weeks!

    You will find a lot of friendly people, and great information here. Glad to have you. I hope you will also share your knowledge with us.

    Welcome from a 3rd Missourian - outside St. Louis, MO. This is a great site, it is addicting, just reading and looking around. I am always willing to give my 2 cents worth and love seeing all the beautiful quilts all create on here.

    Welcome from Connecticut and Arizona. My family lived in Munich for 4 years - loved Basle. Both kids spent a summer there while in college to take intensive German language course.
