    Newbie here from UK

    Hello all
    I am a newbie here but not to quilting. My mum taught me the joys of patchwork and quilting over 8 years ago. I also love vintange and antique items and as such I now have 2 vintage sewing machines.

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

    Welcome from Minneapolis. I'm not from the UK, but did live in London during the Swinging 60's ;o)
    A fabric stash is always missing that one fabric needed to finish the quilt on which you're working.

    Hello Drizzip, from the NE to the West Country. I grew up even further west, in Plymouth, and have spent over half a century working my way north! My first machine as a child was an old Featherweight, followed by a couple of newer machines, but recently I bought another Featherweight for classes. Oh the nostalgia!

    I echo Northern Lass, it is great to see more Brits on here.
