    Hello, all. I've been a lurker on the board for awhile, and decided it was time to say hi.

    I've been a seamstress for a long time. Quilting was one of my first passions as a teenager, and I've just gotten back into it a couple of years ago, after other persuing other ventures. I have my own business, manufacturing wetsuits and drysuits for divers, and decided that quilting was the best escape from the daily grind of rubber!!!

    I also enjoy hand embroidery and crochet, writing, and scrabble.

    Wishing everyone a warm and happy holiday!!

    Cricket

    Welcome from Maine. This is a great place and hope you will post some pictures of what you do.

    Are diving wetsuits different than the surfers wear in the cold waters of
    Maine?

    Love scrabble too.

    Thank you for your welcome.

    The dive suits are two to three times thicker than a surfsuit. I do make surfsuits as well, but most surfers around here like to wear the big name brands and show off their stuff!! :-). Very few surfers who can't fit into stock sizes come to me for custom suits, but I do all of their repairs.

    I have a friend who moved over here from Maine, and he said the water temps are pretty much the same, so I'd assume the suit requirements are about the same.

    I will post some photos once I learn a little more about the board and where to put them.
