    Hi Everyone,

    I am Lisa and I first became interested in quilting in 2008 when a friend and co-worker was diagnosed with cancer. A couple of ladies I work with got together to make her a "chemo quilt" that she could take with her to her chemotherapy appointments (we are nurses) and they invited me to take part. That was the beginning of the end for me! LOL! I have since just purchased a beautiful Bernina 440 sewing machine, went to my first quilt show (Road to California), and discovered while preparing my taxes that I spent nearly a thousand dollars on fabric in 2009! I think it's safe to say that I am addicted to fabric and quilting, but I have yet to complete my first quilt. I am working on it, though, as I have a friend who is having a baby this Summer and I want to give her my first quilt.

    I love this board and I am learning from all of your posts!

    Hello and welcome from SW Iowa. It's easy to spend lots on fabric (especially when you are addicted like us.) :lol: :lol: :lol: Glad to have you here.

    Welcome to the board from Southern California!!!
    I think I (more likely my husband) would have a heart attack if I figured out exactly how much money I spent on fabric last year. I'm not going there....

    Welcome from Pine Grove, CA!

    And just for the record "WE" are all addicted to fabric!

    (We are 15 miles away from the nearest source (of fabric that is) and I have my husband convinced that I need to buy online and have plenty of fabric available for projects here on the spot. And he believes me.....lol)
