    Smile New Upstate New York

    Good morning from the snowing upstate New York. Enjoying quilting during all of our snow and ice. Retired from teaching last June and enjoying the extra time for quilting. Able to take classes to explore new techniques using my quilting and embroidery skills from my local Quilt shop.

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

    Welcome from sunny, breezy Florida. Be careful, you'll be spending a lot of time here...lots of help with techniques and just general quilt information.

    Hi and welcome from snowy Maine, and might I add, cold.... Congrats on your retirement. I tell my husband about my hobbies, quilting and gardening my two biggest ones, "oh DH, don't worry, I'm just practicing for retirement",

    Hi Jeanette. Welcome from CNY, where I have lived my entire life. I'm a retired registered nurse and love having the time to pursue my passion for quilting. This Q Bd is great ... I think you are going to be happy you joined.

    Welcome Jeannette. I was born in central New York (half way between Binghamton & Syracuse) and I'm still here. Winters do get long here but you sure can get a lot of sewing done.

    Welcome from Albany area of NY. I am enjoying the snow when I don't have to go out in it. Unfortunately, I am not retired and still have to go out in it more than I would like. When I don't have to work, I love quilting and sewing nice and cozy inside when it is miserable outside.
