    New Member from Southern Oklahoma

    Morning everyone! My name is Carolyn and I'm a self taught quilter (thank goodness for YouTube). I've only been quilting for about 3 years though I have been sewing/embroidering for nearly 50 years. My first quilt was a Hunter's Star (quilted by hand) and I quickly learned that there is a big difference in sewing crafty things and quilting. I am so excited to learn of this quilting board as I am hoping to learn many new tips and useful information from all of you.

    Welcome from St. Charles, IL. Your quilt is absolutely gorgeous.
    Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.

    Welcome from up north. Topeka, Ks. I used ot make forays into OK to get vintage machines, but maybe I have enough now. Have you been to the Sewing machine museum in Tulsa?Name:  tulsa 4 homebulit table.b.jpg

    My greatest fear is all of my family standing around my coffin and talking about "how sensible" he was.
