    Hi!!! From Illinois-needing some quilting buddies

    Totally new to the forum and am falling in love with quilting, but no friends that have that same love i am looking for a group of people to ask questions and learn as much as I can. And hopefully make a friend or two with my addiction problem

    Illinois has some nice quilt guilds, which have meetings and events.

    Welcome from Gundy County ... I'm just south of Joliet. This is a great place, lots of helpful people and tons of inspiration ... in fact some times TOO much inspiration as I keep adding patterns and techniques I see here to my ever increasing bucket list!
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    Hi,
    I'm in Illinois about 1/2 hour south of you in Orland Park. Have you been to Pieceful Heart Fabrics? I went there on a shop hop with a friend last year and loved everything they had in there. Unfortunately, I couldn't buy it all! LOL

    Hello form the Western suburbs. There are several guilds in the area. I belong to DCQG. We meet the 4th Thursday of the month in Sycamore. Then there is Prairie Star in St. Charles. That one is closer to you and they have a day and a night meeting. Both of these guilds have shows this fall and I will be happy to give you times and places. A show is a great place to start. You get to see what they do and how they function. Also check you local LQS. They should have info for local guilds.
