    Hello from upstate New York!

    Good morning! Just joined hoping to make some new quilting friends. Anyone else from Upstate NY. I live in the beautiful Adirondack Mountains of NY. I'm 68 yrs old, widowed, mother of 2, grand mother to 7, g-grandmother (nana) to 3 and Mom to 2 rescued kitties. Been quilting since 1969. Do my own machine quilting on a Handi quilter Simply16. Love everything fabric! Been making purses and totes for bout 5 years. Favorite fabric is reproduction cw. Kim Diehl and Jo Morton are my favorite. Will post some of my creations soon.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Welcome! I'm originally from upstate (Buffalo, Rochester & Binghamton). Now in NC, but have a cottage in Canada about 90 minutes north of Thousand Island bridge so still come through your beautiful part of the world often. I know you'll like it here.

    Welcome. I never know if I am from upstate NY or western NY. I'm originally from Corning but have lived in the Rochester area since I was in my teens. If you are ever down this way let me know and I'll show you some of my favorite quilt shops.

    Hi Deb, Welcome to the Quilting Boards. I am 68 years old, live in CNY and do most of my own quilting on an HQSS Sit Down ... We have some things in common. I,too, am addicted to fabric and fiber! I love the ADKs, such a beautiful area. I used to go on a Quilting Retreat at Minnowbrook Conference Center on Blue Mt Lake, which was like spending 3 days in Paradise! Unfortunately, the current SU Chancelor raised our fee and the woman who directs these retreats had to find us a new place. We now go to The Copperfield Inn, North Creek. It's just "okay" .......
