    Red face New Englander Now in Florida

    Hi everyone I a Native Vermonter now in FLorida doing my best to adapt to the Florida heat! Thank you so much for accepting me here. I have only been quilting for a few years SEW I am just a little infant in this great sea of wonderful quilters!! I hope to make new friends and learn eveything I possibly can from this amazing group of quilters. I have been sewing since I was 9 years old and professionally since 15. I opened the first sewing school in the state of Vermont in 2003. The Arub Designs School of Sewing. I still teach sewing on occasion and I still make a few gowns but mainly sew for pleasure these days. I am engaged to married after being a widow for 3 years now to a very fine gentleman who has been a widow for 5 years. I also have 12 grandchildren. Thank you so much for the addition. Happy sewing and Quilting to All!

    Welcome Sew_Pink from a fellow Floridian. Just like snow, you get used to the heat after a fashion. I look forward to seeing what your working on.

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.
