    Hi everyone! I am really excited to find this place! I was new on another forum but had trouble finding my way around for some reason. But this one is the same style as another forum I am on where I am an Admin and Mod...so I think I can get around well here! :D

    I am fairly new with quilting, 2 years. I have made 4 quilts, a couple of table runners, a bag and a couple other small things.

    I recently bought a Janome DC 3050 and love it! I am building up a stash of fabric and also check out second hand stores to find scraps of fabric. I love fabric (don't we all?) :lol:

    Your chat is great, I went there earlier and had some immediate questions answered, sure liked that!!! So, you will see me around quite a bit.

    My kids are grown and married, we have 9 grandchildren.

    Yes, we met on chat...it was one of the first things I found and was so happy for instant answers too!

    The walking foot worked fine for the heirloom stitches, and I did one all the way around my table runner. It was SWEET!!! I am having so much fun discovering new things to do!

    I have the binding on the runner and decided to hand sew it to the back, thanks to a tutorial I found here showing a great way to sew them.

    Hello and Welcome, beachy :!: Sounds like I am about an hour east of you.

    Amma - Have you been driving right by my place without waving "hello"?
