    new from central Illinois

    I've been looking for a board to share quilting ideas and find inspiration and advice and this looks like the place to be! I'm retired and live in a small central Illinois town with no quilt guild near, so it will be great to share and chat with you.

    Welcome Lynne! I was a happy solo quilter for years but met people online and later joined a guild and had other contacts. Now I'm dealing with vision issues and can't drive to night meetings but I start out each day with my cup of coffee and quilting board. Glad to have you join us.

    No, I'm over 5 hours from there, but I have been there and it is wonderful! I o have a question though. I'm trying to navigate my way around this forum and would like to know if there is a way to find or get notifications of a new message to me without having to remember or find what I had replied to? I thought I clicked on something that said I would get new notifications in my email, but that didn't happen so I looked for these replies.

    Notifications are PM ( private messages) sent only to you. It will be marked at the top of the board when you get one and you can click on that notice. Replies to this thread will only show under the original post

    Oh, thank you! I tried it and it worked. Otherwise I probably wouldn't remember to whom or where I posted and would miss out on replies. Thanks again!
