    Hello everyone. I am a 55 year old wife and mother who has recently developed a serious addiction to quilting. Three years ago I suffered a massive heart attack and had to give up my career as a school principal. I spent two years wandering around the house looking glum and then my husband signed me up for a quilting class. The rest, as they say, is history! Unfortunately, none of my friends have yet discovered the same passion and so it sometimes gets lonely here in the middle of Canada. And now, imagine my delight to discover an on line group of people who love quilting and seem so darned friendly and helpful. I am looking forward to making lots of new friends...via cyber space!

    Welcome from Colorado. I'm still teaching, but I know how much less stress quilting is, so I'm glad you found it.

    Hello from Ontario. Used to live in Saskatoon. Have you been to Periwinkle's on 8th? There is a guild in town, and they should be able to give you information about it. Great way to connect with other quilters. If you bring your friends along to meetings, it just might get them hooked.

    Hi, welcome from Pitt Meadows BC. I had a heart attack in November 2008, but was a quilter before that.

    Hi there! Welcome from Delaware! Quilting has you hooked, and watch out- this board is addictive too- It's like a quilt show everyday, and a lot of interesting commentary, too. I had to reply cause my bro in law grew up in Saskatoon, and just because of that it's on my "travel bucket list." The world is such an interesting place, you know. We've made it to all 48 contiguous states and Ontario, Quebec, and BC. Anyway, WELCOME to Quiltersville! It's a state of mind :)

    Welcome from New Mexico. I also am home and can't work, and quilting is my refuse. No one down here quilts either, so I love this board, and have met some really nice people on here. My only problem with this board, is that they know so much, and I want to do so many of the things that they talk about and show you how to do. I'll never live long enough to get all the projects done that I really would like to. I'd have to live to be 200.
