Hello everyone! I recently stumbled upon this forum while searching for something and thought it would be fun to join (especially trying to find alternatives to social media websites). I have been quilting for around 30 years and worked in several shops as well as taught classes for a long time. I have been away from quilting and sewing for the last 10 years or so, but am returning to my sewing machine as I am now mostly retired. I enjoy appliqué and piecing more complex blocks and love planning quilts in EQ6 software. After being away from the industry for around 12 years I am not too familiar with new products, but have a good stash of old ones. I look forward to meeting some new quilting friends and hope to contribute to the group.

Welcome from Ontario, Canada. You can find all the new gadgets and ideas on YouTube nowadays. The newest thing that interests me is the ruler foot for my Bernina and rulers that I can use to quilt with on my sewing machine.

Welcome from sunny Southern California. I enjoy this forum every morning with my coffee. I've found plenty of gadgets and new ideas. The gadgets light up my day when they're delivered, happy moments during Covid.
