    Hello

    While I have been reading posts for several months, I thought it was time to introduce myself. I have been quilting for a few years now and I'm so glad I stumbled on to this board. The beautiful quilts and great advice here is wonderful.

    I lost my sister last year who started me on the quilting bug and really knew no one else who quilts so this board is like sitting down and chatting about quilts. Thank you so much to everyone who takes the time to do this.

    I am disabled so I spend a lot of time at home and alone. Unfortunately, my LQS only has classes that go all day long - something I can't do even if I could afford to. This board has been such a blessing in feeling like I'm connected to others who share my love of quilting. Bless you all Erin (elly66)

    Welcome. You will certainly enjoy this group. I look every morning on this board; one of the first things I do with my first morning cup of coffee.

    Welcome from OHIO! This is a great place to learn about and chat about quilts.
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
