    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 :D

    Hi Beth,

    I'm new to quilting also and I'm teaching myself through books and the internet. I also live in Putnam County.

    Welcome! In my younger years, I did canine rescue. Now I have a colony of 6 feral cats that I love and see they are fed and happy.

    Hi Beth:

    Another welcome from WV. I live in Roane County. Have quilted for 10+ years, but have never taken a class. Not many around here that I have heard about. I have lots of books and magazines to learn from though. You will enjoy this forum. If you have questions or problems, there will probably be someone on here who can help you.
