    Hi from Michigan!

    Hi everyone,

    I'm new to quilting and have always wanted to learn so finally took the plunge and bought some supplies today. I enjoy other crafts such as embroidery and knitting and have two children. I'm also a big gardener and canner. I'm looking forward to soaking in all the knowledge here and starting my quilting journey.

    Thanks for having me.

    heh, heh, heh,yet another joining our ranks. Won't be long and you will have stash taking over your house, your children will forget your name and sewing machines, we won't talk about all the sewing machines you will soon be owning. Yes, it is a marvelous trip. Welcome to Quiltdom my dear.
    My stash keeps me in stitches!

    You'll be hooked before you know it. Just do a "small" quilting project to begin so you don't become overwhelmed. I looked in your profile to see where in Michigan you live. I am 18 minutes SW of Lansing. WELCOME!

    I'm near Grand Rapids, thanks!

    I am actually taking a very small easy class tomorrow and doing my first block. I'm pretty excited.

    Thanks for the warm welcome everyone! I've been very inspired already!
