Hi, my name is Michelle. I live in Arlington TX with my beloved puppies and work in Dallas.

I have been quilting for about 7 years and have to laugh at how much I love it since 20 years ago I told my sister I would never ever do a quilt!! Of course, she is married to a wonderful guy who would pull her fabrics and do all her cutting and then ironing. Well, when rotary cutters became popular I started to quilt and have been hooked ever since.

I am just now getting into machine embroidery as well. I've been wanting to incorporate machine embroidery into charity quilts for a long time to make those baby quilts a little more special and maybe bring a bigger smile to some child's face.

I am the mother of two, grandmother of 3 and happlily divorced (the happy part took some time.. but at least I don't have to ask anyone when I go on a fabric binge!!)

I look forward to reading through the messages on the board.

Hi my name is Michelle too, (I use ShellyQ online) but I'm from the other side of the world, right down the bottom there, just about an inch above the south pole :lol:

Anyway nice to meet you, you'll find lots of fellow enthusiasts here and they're a friendly helpful bunch too :-)
