Default New to the Quilting Board from Illinois

Hi everyone! I am from Illinois and have been quilting for a very busy 8 years, but sewing for like it seams forever and loving it. I love playing with fabric and all the combinations that can be created. Made many quilts for my children, grandchildren and others. My newest passion is a very small collection of vintage sewing machines. Look forward to learning and sharing with many new people.

Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

I have an adorable featherweight and also a hand crank that I have used and should get out again. I like how quiet it is to operate. Welcome

And about that "very small collection of vintage sewing machines" If you hang around the vintage machine section of the board, it's not likely to stay very small for long. Lots and lots of enablers on here!
