    Hi everyone. I've been quilting for years so I'm not new to quilting but I'm new to this forum. I live in a "smaller" rural town about an hour outside of Las Vegas but we have 2 quilt stores and one other fabric store, plus our Wal*Mart sells fabric. I guess you could say we are lucky here. I quilt and crochet and sew. *grin* I can't wait to share my fiber and fabric addictions with everyone! Cheers!

    Hi, Bodie358. I'm from So Cal, too. Lived in L.A. and Ventura counties, traveled from Simi Valley to Van Nuys and Rancho Cucamonga to work. Can't say I miss the commute or the smog, but I really miss the people!

    I actually live half the year in So Cal and half the year in Central California - near Yosemite. I get tired of the traffic and smog and go up. Then I get bored with all the peace and quiet and come back down. Works for me.

    Hi gdcleanfun! I have a brother in Henderson and go to visit once or twice a year. He's only been there a year or so, so I haven't had time to scout out any new shops.

    Hope you enjoy all the inspiration shown here!

    We're in Pahrump. It's really grown these past few years, we number at just below 40,000 people now.

    Colorado is such a pretty state. I have a brother living in Colorado Springs and nieces and nephews scattered nearby. And, thank you!

    Hi, Waving from Indiana, USA

    Above go to the user list and type in Nevada and it will bring up other members from your state. Just send them a private message.

    I met a nice lady from Indiana and we have become close friends. Awesome!

    Welcome from cool Minnesota - you can find others from Nevada by going to the top of the message board page - click on 'user list' - then put in your state name in the second box down (the first one is for searching for members by name) - hit search and it will show who else says they are from your state. But, if they didn't put that info in their profile to begin with, it won't list those people. Have fun on the board! There's a great bunch of quilters here - guys & gals - from all over the world!

    Hi Gdcleanfun! Welcome. I have learned so much from the great quilters on this board. I live in Vegas. Would love to hear about the stores in Pahrump. We go over 'the hump' once in awhile. (love to take the grandkids camping at Terrible's Lakeside Resort) Our Walmarts are all losing the fabric departments. Are you in a guild? I've never joined one but would like to find out about them.
