    Hi All,

    New here. I joined a while ago but am sorry to say I never got on except to read the post. Thought I should start to particpate. Looks like a fun group. I live in PA and have been quilting for several years. Still have lots to learn.

    Hi everybody, I'm new too. I am from Nova Scotia, Canada and have just started to type on here lol You guys are awesome and learn lots from you. You guys use lots of abbreviations that I have yet to figure out, lol but hopefully I will eventually. My introduction to quilting is a unique one. I don't come from a sewing family and therefore never sewed in my life. I got it into my head to make a quilt for my mother and father for Christmas. Not even knowing how to thread a machine, I bought one at Walmart, got my daughter to show me how to thread it and off I went to my first quilting class. To make a long story short, the class was for a "lap quilt" (never heard of that) and after much bribing with Tims coffees, was able to talk the instructor into giving me the sizes for a quilt that would fit a bed (who knew) It was the snowball quilt and I must say, turned out amazing (I'll never tie another quilt tho, lol) Needless to say, I now have the bug and although this whole quilting thing does not come natural to me, I struggle but I love it. My sister is opening a "Dog Grooming Shop" and has asked me to make somethings for in her shop. Little quilts and stuff, any ideas? I've been online for days trying to find some free patterns, have one for a coat, but I'd love any suggestions. Who knows, could be the start of a little business for me. Anyway, thanks for listening and I enjoy being part of this group. Wendy

    you could make doggie scarfs, sew a triangle,use cute materials like bones,holiday fabrics, etc. on the top of the triangle make a seam so the collar can slide through the material, I have made these for my sisters Boston Terrier

    Doggie scarves are a BIG thing. I have several customers who come in from time to time and buy several yards of a wide variety of fabric to make dog scarves that they make and give to their doggie customers after their visits. They gear toward the animal prints, and then gear others toward male or female.

    If you are adventurous and it depends on what she offers in her business, but you could get into making dog beds, dog blankets for the smaller dogs who get cold easily. Most I know use flannel for this. Dogs also like blankets to just lay on, to travel with.... the opportunities are endless.
    Good luck and welcome to our board.
    Share pics of what you do make - we love to see projects!
