    Oldie but Newbee

    I am just looking into quilting, and am going to take some beginner classes. I used to sew many years ago, so hope I am not to old to learn new things. I am going to need a lot of help. Am learning a lot of new terms. Enjoy reading your posts...and thanks in advance for everything!!

    Of course, you are not too old to learn new things! If you are interested, you can learn. Sign up for your classes and have fun.

    Welcome from Beautiful Arizona. I am a transplant from Lake George, NY. I took up quilting late in life and absolutley love it. Now at 70 I finally feel the label "quilter" describes me. This site has been such a blessing to me and it will be to you as well. Happy Quilting!

    Welcome to this great forum. You're never too old to start sewing. There is a lot of great information here and if you need help, all you have to do is ask and someone will have the answer.

    Welcome from OHIO! Your age is just a number...you're not too old for anything!
    Being a great quilter is 5% talent and 95% pushing yourself away from the internet!
