    Hi, I'm new at quilting but pretty excited about finishing just one project. I started a couple of years ago and am self taught, so I have a heck of a lot to learn from you all.

    Welcome from Ontario.

    Where in NB are you located?

    My boy's dad owns a house on Campobello Island. We haven't been there since his dad died 2 years ago.

    His mom grew up in St. Stephen, and his dad mostly in St. Andrew's but they moved to Montreal during the school year.

    Welcome to the boards. You are gonna love it here!

    I am in Oromocto, just outside Fredericton - the big capital city of Fredericton :roll:
    I have never been to Campobello but I've seen it on the ferry ride on the way to Grand Manan. I do all of my shopping in Calais, Maine, so I go through St. Stephen's a lot too.

    Ever been to St. Andrews? My daughter's favourite place! I grew up in British Columbia and moved to NB, 20 years ago when I was 24. Got divorced here and never left. I love the Maritimes.

    Come visit anytime :-D

    Welcome. My mother and her family are from Campobello and I have several cousins in St. Stephen. It amazes me to see people who actually know where the Maritimes are. Beautiful part of the world!

    The boy's dad's house is right next to the Legion in Welshpool. Thier great grandfather was Cleavland Mitchell and he ran a general store out of that building when he retired from the Algonquin hotel in St. Andrews. Your mom would probably know Clev, as he was very social and played the organ at the Anglican church.

    The boy's uncle graduated from UNB in Fredericton with a law degree, so I've been there a few times.

    The boy's dad's grandmother grew up in a house on Mill Street, in St. Stephen and it is now and insurance agency. It's a big one, and I know your cousin's would know which one it is.

    After the boy's grandmother died in 1997, I didn't go back to NB till thier grandfather died in 2007.

    I was born and raised in SK, and I liked to visit but definately couldn't live out there.
