    New member from Newfoundland, Canada

    Hi , I just joined the Quilting Board this week and thought I would introduce myself. My name is Jackie and I am originally from Quebec but have been living in Newfoundland for almost 30 years. I am married and have 2 children, a daughter 26 and a son 23. I have been quilting for about 6 years and am developing an interest in vintage sewing machines. Hope to learn lots on this board and contribute when I can.

    Welcome Jackie, from New York state! I'm sure you will find this website very addicting and very helpful. I've been sewing for nearly 20 years and quilting for ~10. Have a great day! Enjoy the QB. LQS means local quilt shop. DH usually means dear husband, DS - dear son, DD - dear daughter.
    Go forth and sew!

    Welcome Rosie from Washington State! Have you seen this forum on here: http://www.quiltingboard.com/vintage...thusiasts-f22/

    I have about 20+ vintage machines myself. And I must say I caught the bug from the Quilting Board. There is so much to learn on this site about quilting and vintage sewing machine.

    Hi welcome from Australia. I too am developing an interest in vintage sewing machines to go with my collection of vintage sewing implements. I have my eye on a machine that I am going to look at tomorrow, hope you find a nice one soon.

    Welcome to the quilting Board Jackie! I'm from Nevada, have a long background in sewing, did quilts 30 years ago, and am now picking it up again in retirement. My, have things changed! I would so love to have my old Singer one stitch back. What a workhorse of a machine. But I have one of those new computerized sewing machines, a Janome, that does absolutely everything, and I love that too. But sometimes I'd just like to sit down and just sew, straight line, even if I have to do my own button holes by hand like we used to!

    Anyway, welcome, welcome! You'll find much to learn here, and much to offer, I'm sure. Thanks for joining us! We love newcomers!

    Cheers!
    MacThayer
