    newbie from France

    Hello all you crafty people (in the good way). I am not sure if I ever introduced myself so better twice than not at all. I am 57 and have only started quilting a few months ago. For years I said I would never do it and now I have the bug. I have not sewn either so it is all new to me. I was lucky my lovely other half paid for a great machine for me, I have the bernina 430. It sews wonderfully which compensates a bit for the fact that I dont, lol.

    hugs from France,
    Joanne

    Hello and welcome to our great group here. I greet you from New York. I know all about the quilting "bug". When it hits me I can't be stopped!!...or the knitting bug...or the counted cross stitch bug...just to name a few. lol
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    Welcome from Fargo, North Dakota (USA). I went to France three years ago on a quilt/art museum tour led by my DD's MIL. We went to a wonderful little quilt shop in Paris--I can't remember its name right now. The whole trip was wonderful. I loved every minute that I spent in your country and was sorry I was only there two weeks.

    I really enjoy this site and the wonderful inspriation from others' quilts.
