    Hi I have just joined the message board in my lunch hour. I have been quiting for about 7 years and seem to have made quilts for most of my family members but not one for myself yet. Hope to get to make new friends as there is no quilting group where I live.

    Welcome to the board from Southern Ontario Canada!!!
    I think a lot of us are in the same boat as you, we make things for everyone else and leave ourselves until the end!! We need to stop that!! You will love this board everyone is helpful and friendly!

    Hi Angie and welcome from an English gal living in France!

    Are you anywhere near the Cotton Patch shop? I order from there a lot and have been there once when I was staying in Stow a while back.

    It's great here and you'll soon be inspired to make that quilt for YOU! :D

    That's one of the nice things about the QB - our PC connects wherever we are. Call it an instant Quilting Circle.

    Greetings from Sacramento California.

    Hi, yes I am fairly close to the Cotton Patch although I have to say that I don't buy from there very often. I find them rather expensive by comparison to some other internet quilt shops I use.

    I am resiting buying any more fabric at the moment as we have the Festival of Quilts UK in a couple of weeks and I know I shall end up spending far too much there. :D

    Hello Angie

    Welcome to the board from Nottingham, UK. You will love it here we all do.

    I'm off to the NEC too - what day are you planning on going, I'm going on day 1, & I can't wait. Maybe we could meet up :wink:

    Welcome England from down in the holler here in West Virginia in the good 'ol USA. I'm too far down in the holler for you to see me wave. My old boss, now friend is from England and she is the one who has taught me to quilt. She is very good. Only hope I am worthy of her teachings.

    Hello, and welcome from the middle of the US. I spent some lovely weekends in Birmingham while I was working in Stafford! Wonderful experiences from the 80s. :lol: :lol:
