    Hello,
    My name's Beth and I am totally new to quilting and taking some basic classes at Sneed's in Charleston, WV. I love them. :)
    I made a new friend recently who has sewn about all her life but is also new to quilting, so we are learning that part together, but she is also teaching me to make garments as well! What I used to call my "office" I now refer to as "sewing room", so I think I've been converted. I like to crochet as well, though I haven't done that for awhile.
    I find myself interested in old-fashioned arts of all sorts. I canned this summer for the first time and would love to make some homemade soaps, but that will have to wait until later.
    I work in the healthcare field, am married, and have a two year old son. I also have 6 pets and am involved in animal rescue and transport.
    I am thinking of making items for the animal shelters and would like to give to Project Linus and similar groups. But I've not got anything completed at this point and the Mickey Mouse plaid and coordinating fabric I began working on for a kid's blanket my son decided he liked a lot! lol

    So, that is me. Hello All!


    Beth :)

    Glad you found this board. You will get all sorts of wonderful help here on just about any subject. I too am from WV, (Princeton, Mercer County), and started making quilts about 6 years ago. Once you get your stash built up (I got my first stashs from haunting thrift shops, goodwill, etc, buying pillowcases (Lots of fabric in them...) dresses, mens shirts, and so on. Washing, ironing and cutting them into fat quarters, or strips. Good luck, and keep it up.

    Hi from Fairmont WV. I've been to Sneeds during the shop hop they participate in June. If you can do the hop it is a blast.

    Hey, Welcome from another West Virginian!!!! I live near Hinton, WV. Takes a little over an hour for me to get to Charleston. My hubby is working on the bridge down there. I like doing the same things you do. I'll be teaching my daughter to can and quilt. She is moving back home. Yippie!!! There's so many on here from WV. Wish we could do a retreat somewhere. And everyone could meet. That would be so much fun. And of course, bring your sewing machines.
