    Hi Everyone!

    What a great site this is with a wealth of information. Thanks so much to founder and hosts. I live in Northern California in a little town called Bella Vista which is on the outskirts of Redding, Ca. I am a retired postmaster adjusting to retirement as I have found I miss being part of the working community.

    I have worked in the garment industry years ago doing piece work when my children were small. I was able to sew (and supplement our income) using my own industrial sewing machine which was set up in a spare bedroom. Any sewing I've done in the past did not require the precision as does quilting. I was humbled as I worked on my first quilt block last month.

    My awe and respect to all you quilters who silently are working away making your creations.

    Have a wonderful day.
    Althea (Blisterful)

    I'm new here too!! I live in Atlanta, GA where it's 72 this afternoon and only the second day this year I've had the top down on the convertible.

    I've been quilting since I was very young and that's a long time ago. After owning a quilt shop for a number of years, my stash is extensive and I am now concentrating on scrap quilts to reduce it a bit!

    Welcome from Alturas, CA. So glad you joined us. I go through Bella Vista whenever I head down to Fresno, maybe we could meet up for a few minutes.
