    I just joined this group and am looking forward to getting lots of great quilting tips from all of you nice folks. I'm originally from New York but live in north Georgia now. I recently lost my job and am looking for a new career but in the meantime I have four quilting projects going on and am having a great time letting my creative juices flow again!

    Hi! I grew up in New Rochelle in Westchester County, just north of the Bronx. I graduated from SUNY at Oswego and lived for a short time in the Elmira area when I got out of college. Later on I moved to Suffern in Rockland County and then up to Highland Falls in Orange County between Bear Mountain and West Point. I moved down to Georgia in 2002 and don't miss the snow one little bit! Where in New York are you?

    Welcome from a life-long Georgian. New Rochelle was where my husband's grandparents and parents lived for many years. As for not missing the snow...wasn't yesterday just beautiful? That is probably the most snow I can ever remember seeing!

    Welcome from another in Louisiana! And we thought we'd avoid snow by moving to the South - Ha!

    My husband's parents know just about everyone in Canton since they have lived there for over forty years. I wouldn't be surprised if they know your family. Small world!

    New Rochelle was a beautiful city back in the day. We even had a Bloomingdale's department store with a fabric department. I can remember an absolutely gorgeous floral linen fabric that my Mom and I bought there. She made the most beautiful dress for me with it. We lived down near Hudson Park right up the street from the marina. Where did your husband's family live in New Rochelle?

    hI, I'm in Texas and have only begun quilting since I retired and moved from Nashville. I find quilters to be great people and what a rewarding way to meet with people.

    I have read a lot of things on this site and have gotten some wonderful tips. I do have a question about how does becoming a regular member work?

    Oh, I would absolutely love to go and thanks so much for the invitation but, unfortumately, Thursday is the day that I have to report to the Dept. of Labor unemployment office to attend a mandatory re-employment workshop and to verify that I am actively seeking employment. Now, honestly, which activity seems like more fun??? I am so jealous!!!
