    I've been reading the posts on the quilting board for a couple of weeks, and I really like what I see.
    I've also posted a couple of times, so I thought I should introduce myself.
    I have been sewing since junior high, and quilting for about 12 years. I like to machine piece and quilt, and I love to hand piece and quilt (I was especially glad to see the hand quilting topic this last week).
    I have a closet full of UFO's, and my goal for this year is to finish at least one a month.
    My partner, Joni (aka qltndog), and I own Thread Affairs (www.threadaffairs.com). We host quilting and sewing retreats in Southern California.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome.

    We have 80-degrees here today, but we may have rain by Tuesday, which is rare for us. Our winter has been unusual, but I'm not complaining.

    Thanks for the nice words about my quilt, but it's just a small wall hanging. I love to hand quilt, but I don't care much for the bulk in my lap, so I do small-ish things.

    Gayle, we don't have a shop - we host weekend (3- to 4-day) retreats, with one in May in Fullerton, and two in Temecula later in the year (check our website). I live in Laguna Hills, just across the 5 Fwy from Mission Viejo. Small world, huh?

    Jennifer, I have a good friend that belongs to a Guild in the Corona area. In fact, their quilt show is next month and we'll probably go. If you're in the area by then, let me know and we'll meet up.

    Linda

    Greetings from New Hampshire.
    Wish there was a retreat service like yours here in New Hampshire.

    Souther Calif sounds great about now! We are having lots of rain and cold! My daughter lives in Los Angeles and is a nurse there. We have visited and I kept trying to get everyone to explore the quilt shops with me, maybe next visit.

    Hello and welcome from another Orange County quilter. I live in Anaheim and my new favorite hangout is a new-ish (2 yrs maybe) quilt shop in Orange called the Orange Quilt Bee.
