    Good evening everyone! I just thought I would introduce myself. My name is Jen and I am a fairly new quilter in Minnesota. I started quilting a couple of years ago after my daughter was born. I have 2 little ones and not a lot of time! I'm still trying to figure out how this board works. I thought I posted a question earlier today and now I can't find it and can't figure out how to look for it! Probably lost in Cyberspace!

    Thank you! That's very helpful to know.

    I live in Anoka. Detroit Lakes, huh? I have old family friends who live in Dent. Spent a lot of time in that area as a kid. It's beautiful up there.

    A big welcome from Ireland, I hope you enjoy it here. If you 'lose' something, you can try search - put in your quilting board name and then your postings should come up.

    It's nice to "meet" people nearby who quilt. I don't really know anyone else who quilts near me. I usually go to Fat Quarters Quilt Shop off of Foley in Coon Rapids. I pass cottage Quilts in Elk River and keep meaning to stop but have failed to so far. Any suggestions for nearby shops?

    I've stopped at Cottage Quilts a number of times. There's the Blue Bambo in Plymouth though I haven't been there in ages, Quilted Treasures in Rogers, and there's always Grubers in St. Cloud but that's quite a bit farther for you to to drive.
    Maybe the 3 of us could get together and share some of our quilting experiences with each other.
    PM me.

    I would love to get together. I work from home and my DH is always telling I need to get out of the house more! :lol:

    Then that's what you need to do. I know I wouldn't have to be told more than once to do it.

    having a preschooler and toddler make it a little more challenging! My DH goes to a pool league every week and I feel bad if I'm gone one night a week besides! Bad Mommy to not take of myself besides!

    I would love to get together! I shop mostly at either Quilted Treasures in Rogers or Four Seasons Quilts in Plymouth (Rockford Road and 169). I LOVE Blue Bamboo (off of Hwy 55 in Plymouth) and get there as much as I can but I really have to know what I want before I go because they have so much! I've been to Fat Quarters in Coon Rapids, but not really since they opened (I lived in Champlin so it was a little closer than southern MG!). I started quilting at Quilter;s Basket which was in Maple Grove off of Zachary, but she closed down a few years ago. I still do my quilt retreat with her and her group twice a year so it has been a nice connection to keep!

    My kids are 2nd and 3rd grade (in September) so they are a little more manageable when it comes to mommy getting out on her own.

    Again, would LOVE to get together!
