    Newbie Quilter from SW MI

    Hi all . . . I just discovered quilting this very month. I took a Quilting 101 class at a local fabric store and am hooked. I used to sew years ago - I have a 25 y/o machine (for the time being) but will be looking to upgrade. I can't wait for the holidays to be over so I can start quilting. And looking forward to learning more from this forum.

    Welcome Marsha from a former SW MI resident. We used to be snowbirds here in Florida. We made our permanent move in 2002 and soon after I became a quilter. I miss the beauty of the snow, especially on the evergreen trees. I definitely do not miss living in the snow. Have a good and safe winter.

    We're closer to Muskegon (south). The west side of MI is beautiful. We'd like to get back up north once we're both retired.

    Thank you all for the warm welcome. I know I'm going to like it here.

    welcome. I am not that "old" to quilting, but spend a lot of time here. You will love all of the expertise and enthusiasm, and most of all, the support, from everyone here.
    Again, welcome from northern CA

    Thanks again for the welcome. I'm spending WAY too much time here looking at everyone's quilts and reading the support and comments. I am so looking forward to making my first quilt, a baby quilt for my nephew and his wife. I bought the fabric yesterday and can't wait to get started. What a great bunch here!
