    Hi from cold, snowy northern NY

    Hi,
    My name is Carol and I live in the Adirondacks in northern NY. I've been sewing for years. I mostly make potholders and neckties which I sell wholesale to shops around the country

    Once I get the ties or holders cut out, I find myself piecing the scraps together to make more potholders or mug mats or something so they don't go to waste I have also used the scraps to make several full size quilts. The quilts are nothing fancy - just small 4 inch squares but that makes for quite a variety of prints in a full size quilt.

    This forum looks so interesting and I know I can find some great ideas here, even on non quilting topics like what books people are reading. Nice to meet you all.
    Carol

    Oh so glad you found us! Welcome from North Carolina! A couple of times in my younger years I drove through your area (always took the scenic way)on my way to Canada and back. What beautiful beautiful country even if it is a bit cold.

    Hello, I am also from New York...near the State Capitol. It sure has been a cold Winter so far..but not much snow my way.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Welcome from Japan! I am also originally from upstate New York. It sure gets cold there, but what great weather to make you want to quilt!

    Thank you for the warm welcome everyone! Yes, the cold weather makes you want to stay inside and quilt so it does have advantages. We've had several feet of snow so far although some melted but it will soon be replaced :-)
