    Hi,
    At age 73, I have decided that I would love to learn to quilt. I have been sewing for years, recently purchased an embroidery machine. After seeing all the beautiful quilts, I would love to learn to use both machines in making quilts.

    I am a retired elementary teacher. My oldest daughter and I graduated from college together. Which was a great challenge! I have one granddaughter, which is the apple of my eye. Two daughters, one is a special needs teacher and the other one works for doctor. My husband and I camp alot, and I ususally have my sewing machine or some sewing project with us. We live in a little place called Pinch WV.
