    Hello from Venice Italy

    Hello everyone - I am an AF wife & Army Vet from Granbury Texas - I was bit by the Quilting Bug about 13 years ago while in Boise Idaho! - I am a crazy Appliquer and currently working on about 9 UFO's including a Dear Jane. Quilting is my sanity while raising 3 kids including 2 teenagers. I teach classes in quilting, go to grad school and quilt - I also work with kids. I also love digi scrapping -
    I tend to do multiple blocks of the month because I have no access to fabric here other than the internet.
    I look forward to chatting!
    If anyone is ever this way - (Venice) would love to meet up and chat over some AMAZING Italian coffee -

    Hi Nonjay
    welcome aboard from Quebec City, Canada. I see that you are a real quilter with so many UFO on your hand! I am sure you will love it here. With what you describe, you sure keep busy!
    You live in such a beautiful city. I went for a visit in 2008. It would be fun if some members happen to go this year. You could meet with some board members. Have fun!

    Welcome from Illinois!!!

    My husband and I have business associates in Treviso. Next time we're in the neighborhood I'll let you know We're going to London in October, we considered popping down to Venice - will let you know if we do.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Welcome from the wet coast of Canada.

    Sounds like you have a lot on your plate. How about adding a small patriotic project to celebrate Italy? Or using the Italian colours in one of your current projects? You could incorporate your home state colours as well as any of the places you've been stationed. Just a thought.

    Welcome from SC Texas. So happy you joined us. My DH is retired Army and we spent a lot of years living over seas. I was lucky that our time was spent in Far Eastern country's where beautiful fabric was everywhere. I sure brought back my share. You will find a lot of helpful fun people here.
