Red face Hello from Western Washington!

Hello from Washington! My name is Olive and I am a brand new quilter and a pretty novice sewer.

I just started working on my first quilt and somehow fell into vintage sewing machine addiction! That is a long story, so I am going to post it over on the vintage sewing machine part of the forum. But researching vintage sewing machines is how I found the quilting board, so I'm happy to be here.

Hello Olive! I'm here in the Seattle area, I'm actually rather near the Seahawks facility so a bit south east. Welcome to the boards, no matter what section you post in most

A number of years ago I would get nice post-war Japanese all metal machines and clean them up, buy a part, do what was needed and had a charity that connected them with refugees and immigrants. I'm not all that mechanical but the machines I selected didn't need much more than a cleaning.

For most of the last 30 years I've been sewing on a vintage Remington that originally belonged to a friend's grandmother. I'm 59 and it is older than me, but when my once top of the line machine (the last year with cams before they went to computers) broke, the part that broke was not covered and I tried for years to have it fixed, so I started using "Remy". About a year ago now a friend of mine gave me her replaced modern Bernina and I have been trying to come into this century.

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

Welcome to the QB from SE Michigan. There are a lot of vintage addicts here and some like myself that just dabble. I mostly quilt and love patchworking. Thanks for joining and jump right in.
