    I'm Joann, a retired teacher from Naperville, IL, transplanted (by choice) to the Hiawatha National Forest in central UP of Michigan. I'm originally from the Soo. I started quilting in 2000 because I wanted 4 unique matching bed covers for the cabin's bunkroom. By the time the 4 were done, I was hooked and had done 5 others. I'm active in the Munising quilt guild, enjoy being outdoors year round -- yes, even in the winter -- to include fishing, snowmobiling, 4 wheeling, kayaking, snowshoeing, walking woods trails, gathering firewood, etc., and LOVE to piece and quilt my quilts. I have an original Tin Lizzie 18 longarm machine. I'm married, have a daughter & son, and now have two grandsons.

    Welcome. My daughter lives in Hancock, on the Keweenaw peninsula. We sometimes drive through Munising on our way to visit her. They love it, but the 70 inches of snow they had in January alone is too much for me.

    My mailing address is Manistique, but we're only 27 miles from Munising (23 from Manisitque). We've made a couple of trips to the Keewenaw. Beautiful area. We have fun with the snow. We get mostly lake effect fluff.

    Welcome, Joann. It's good to have you on the board. You're a woman after my own heart. I'm an outdoors girl too and love all those things you mentioned. We've been camping in the UP for many, many years. -From SE Michigan.
