    Welcome Jodie: I am not too old here myself but have found it to be a very positive and helpful place. I started quilting about 2 years ago but have only finished 1 throw and 1 pillow. I have several others that I have worked for a time until I ran out of fabric or had a problem or got bored but I consider them all to be Works In Progress not Unfinished Objects (UFO's) As with every other trade or craft there is a separate language involved. Are you quilting?

    Thanks everyone. I just finished a T-shirt quilt for a co-worker’s daughter who was graduating from high school. I think it will be a while before I do another of those!! I have always wanted a wall full of mini quilts. We moved into our new house in December. I have 2 minis completed and space for about 20 more!! Gonna start weeding through my scraps next week!!

    Welcome from Texas. This is a good board for encouragement & information. Ask as many questions as you can think of. I'm always learning from questions other quilters ask.

    Welcome from Tennessee. Minis are such a good way to get instant gratification. They are quick to make and finish. Unlike a large quilt that will live in limbo. I have several of those. Maybe I need to follow you and work on more minis

    I don’t want to admit how many quilt tops I have sitting here..waiting to be finished! Lol. I say I’m making the minis only because I want a wall full, but I really think I need about a year of instant gratification before I’m ready to tackle the big ones!!

    Hi Jodie, what part of the SD do you live? I'm near Mitchell.

    Welcome to the board, there is a lot of fun stuff to follow along with on here, and lots and lots of ideas too.

    There is a second hand fabric shop in Tea????? Why was I not aware? I've only been ordering online since Millend closed. Is that quilt shop in Mitchell worth visiting?

    Jodie,

    the quilt shop in Mitchell is on the small side, but they do have a decent variety and the staff is very pleasant. Mitchell also has a discount fabric store a lot like Mill Ends, but they are going out of business. They are at 50% off quilting cotton right now, but the selection is getting down. I've bought about $1,500 since they announced closing, and if they get to 75% off I'm gong to go load up on backing fabric.

    The place in Tea is a real Hole in the Wall. Called Quilters' Exchange, and it's on the west side of I 29, north side of the road right before the Antique shop, it's the same parking lot. We found them by accident because we were checking out the Antiques and noticed the little sign in the window. Barb, the owner, does mostly Long Arm work, and she's there quite a bit. She sells fabric for around $4 a yard, and buys it by the pound from quilters that have no use for it anymore. So it's a great place if you are looking for smaller yardages for sampler quilts and such. Not good if you want several yards of a fabric.

    Cathy, I’ve seen that shop dozens of times when we’ve been to the antique store. I didn’t think it was ever open! I may need to check out the sale in Mitchell. Thanks!

    if there is a car/truck parked next to the building, Barb is most likely there. She's super friendly and loves having people come to visit, even if they are not buying.
