    Newbie from Michigan

    Hi! My name is Connie and I live in Michigan. I am new to quilting. I do have several sewing machines. Have been sewing since i was a small child and then started sewing on a machine at 14 years old....many years ago. I have my mom's antique treadle...Singer Model 27 born September 15, 1896 and just bought a Singer Featherweight Model 221. Have started my first applique quilt. Have made several other quilts...embroidered the blocks. Have not made a regular patchwork quilt. Hoping to do so yet this year. Thanks for letting me join. I have so much to learn. Connie

    Hi Connie...welcome from Oklahoma. You will really enjoy and learn a lot here. I started quilting just a couple of years ago and have picked up so many pointers...the QB family are always willing to help a quilter with any sort of problem or question. Great to have you aboard!

    Welcome from the Middle of the Mitten! This a great resource for inspiration, help and just plain praise. No matter how bad you think something is, someone will say something nice! Haha

    Connie, welcome from New York! This site is a mixed blessing. There will be times when instead of working on a WIP (work in progress) you'll be chatting or viewing what's new! It really is full of good people, generally speaking. Something that may be helpful to you is a chart of abbreviations;
    DH - dear (or damn) husband
    DD - dear daughter
    DS - dear son
    DGD - dear grand daughter
    DGS - dear grand son
    LA - Long Arm
    LQS - local quilt shop
    wonky - something that's just a bit off ...about a quilt or whatever the person's talking about
    Go forth and sew!
