    I'm new to the site, a quilting/sewing teacher - used to own a Stretch & Sew store in the '80s, so that's how long I've been teaching. Working now for a local store and teach Adult Ext. classes for a local college. :lol:
    I'm always looking for new ideas, especially since I try to come up with something new for Quilt Club that I teach monthly.
    This site has been so helpful, as I've found some great fabric & notion sites already. I'm looking forward to being a part of this

    thanks - my friends and I love to come down to Arcola/Arthur, just to check out the quilt store in Arthur. What a fun short trip that is!

    Welcome from central Illinois! I lived in the NW Chicago suburbs years ago, near Woodfield Mall. We've been downstate for the past 22 years. This group has a lot of fun. Hope you join in!

    I used to live in Roselle, and worked in Lord & Taylor in Woodfield Mall. Small world. Now live almost to the WI line, as my church is up here.
