    Hi everyone! This site was recommended to me by a very good friend. I am so looking forward to learning more from all of you!
    I have been quilting for about 2-3 years. I enjoy handquilting but there really isn't anything about quilting that I don't enjoy. I also love gardening, reading, traveling and golfing. I have recently become the proud owner of a featherweight machine that was manufactured on my EXACT birthdate!!!! I am a retired school secretary.
    I have been married 40 years and am the proud Nana of two great little grandkids!

    Welcome aboard and the featherweight made on your birthday is awesome. Most have been an omen for you to get it.

    Welcome Nana! I agree that the Featherweight being made on your Bday was just an Omen. Happy that you have her & I hope you will make some fabulous quilts with her. I have just started looking at them. They are so so cute! Good to see another handquilter. It is so relaxing. Nice to have you here.

    Hi Nana. Glad you joined us. Where in the PNW are you? I'm in
    Eastern Wa. I guess that is still PNW. I guess when I see PNW
    I think of Seattle area. That is actaully where I started from.
    Renton. Luckily I still have a bro and sis there so I don't have to pay for motel when I go to the Sewing Expo. You going to that? Should be fun. Eleonor Burns will be there, yaaaaaa.
