    Hi all. I've just stumbled upon this amazing forum after trying for ages to find one in the UK - unsuccessfully. Anyway, I'm almost a complete beginner. I have most of the equipment I need and know a few of hte basics, but I'm looking forward starting my quilting journey!

    Welcome from California.
    You came to the right place... we all love to quilt! We do it at different skill levels and various amounts of time per week. I myself am sadly on a break due to poor health, but I still enjoy reading and viewing photos and the camaraderie of all the friendly quilters here.

    Welcome Jools you will enjoy this forum. I have found the ladies to be extremely kind and helpful. I too lived in England. I grew up near Chester in Cheshire and have lived over here for 50 years. Still reminisce about the "good old days"

    Welcome from Michigan!

    What part of the UK are you in? My husband and I were in the Wirral last May -- his dad is from Liverpool originally, and they have family all over Merseyside.

    Elle, I was born in Wirral. A place named Bromborough.Went to school there also. I also have lots of friends back there although no siblings or parents. Liverpool is a place unto itself. Different accent, if your'e from Liverpool your accent is known all over the world. Lots of special slang, and yes, sometimes hard to understand. The Wirral is opposite to Liverpool across the river Mersey. Oh My!!!Geography lesson in a quilting group.
