    Hi, I'm a newbie in many ways

    Hi all,
    I've just gotten back into sewing/quilting/embroidering after an illness that took a couple of years of my time. DH bought me a TOL sewing machine which intimidates the heck out of me. I also have a featherweight (1952) and a Pfaff about 15 years old. I've done a lot of embroidery and have always been interested in quilting but didn't think I had the ability. Anyway, I'm going to give it a shot and am thankful to have found this board.

    Hi You are never too old to start quilting, I started about 12 years ago and love it, love it. I may not make perfect quilts, but they sure do make me happy when I finish it. At that time, I didn't even know how to make a bobbin, so I really was a newbie.I also love embroidery. Have fun.

    Hi BarbH41, my quilting isn't the best either, but it's mine, and there is no Quilt Police here. Wonderful place to chat and get great information on just about any aspect of quilting.

    Howdy from Oklahoma! Welcome to the Board. I keep my small "learning quilts" to practice quilting the quilt before I do an important quilt for more uniform handstitching & when I'm done I have a quilt & a wall hanging, that's my tip of the day. Newbie myself (19 months!) and still so much to learn. So glad you've joined.

    Another SHO-ME welcome - this one coming from Lebanon, Missouri. I was born and raised in St. Louis and still have some family there (175 miles from here). My advice would be to start on a very simple project and master your machine and your skills.

    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!

    I can relate. My sewing and quilting took back seat to family illness for a long time(Father and Mother). I have sewn off and on for many years, but I am no expert! I do it for fun and for family. Welcome from Texas and have fun!
