I am from Nova Scotia, Canada and have been quiltiing for about 3 years and am totally addited. I have leaarned alot in 3 years but, still go for beginner patterns and there are some of them that I avoid (might be too hard). There are still lots of beginner quilt patterns on my plate. I am busy right now as we are into the Xmas tree and wreath business, so quilting is on the back burner for a few weeks. Maybe we can get our grand kids to help with the retail once in awhile. hope to hear from some one out there. Raylene
