    Hi,
    I bought another featherweight centennial yesterday (my 2cd cent, 4th fw) and started wondering about forums for the fw.

    I found you...! :thumbup:

    I lurked around for about an hour before registaring. What a lovely bunch of women you are! I also like how active you are with the block exchanges and such.

    I've been quilting for about 25 years, sewing since I was a child (I'm 50 now). After an early retirement, I went to work for a local quilt shop and ended up managing the place and teaching classes i.e.machine embroidery, know your machine (bernina, babylock, viking), and quilting. After I lost my husband I 'retired' (again :lol: ) and have just been piddle-ing around with quilting, cooking and crafts in general.

    Well, that's me in a nutshell.... I'm off to go read up on here!
