    I found this site 7 days ago...and what a week....
    I came looking for inspiration and have been amazed.
    In a week I have decided on the quilt I want to make, found an amazing person, Colleen who has agreed to make it with me even though we are thousands of miles apart and have never met.
    Agreed to start a pinwheel project.
    Been told about fantastic online stores that I never knew about
    Chatted to some really lovely people in the chat room
    ....all this inspired me to completly sort out my sewing room and organise my stash revealing loads of wonderful fabrics I had completly forgotten about.....
    What a week.... Thank you

    It is bad when you spend more time here than sewing but what fun!

    Glad you are here too, but remember being on this board is addictive. You could lose a lot of quilting time! :lol:

    Welcome from Seattle, Wa. Yes, it's true. You'll find tons and tons of information, websites (my Delicious button is constantly in use!), and great people. It's awesome!

    We're glad that you are here but you better stay out of the Vintage Sewing Machine Shop section :shock: :shock: :shock: . There is a very contagious illness running rampant, among the people who frequent it, and it causes them to buy vintage machines until they run out of room to get any more....hahahaha!!

    Hi Cathy....
    re the vintage sewing machine site...I haven't looked yet but I have the sewing machine that my aunt taught me to sew on when I was a child....it is in my loft and has been for about 20 years without me looking at...I reckon it is from the 50s or even earlier...if I remember rightly it has long thin bobbins and a long shuttle....have only kept it for sentimental reasons...will go up and have a look at it tomorrow maybe

    Yeah, but have you actually found the time to do any sewing since finding us?!! That's the problem a lot of us have!

    Enjoy!

    YOu will find that you have less time to quilt once you find the board.

    Isn't this the greatest place. I was looking for a hobby and found an extended family.

    Your machine in the attic will be a tad older than the 50's if she has a long bobbin. More than likely the 20's or 30's. I bet in no time at all, you will be up in that attic, getting that machine down and checking her out, cleaning, oiling, and revelling in such fun and when the power goes out and the electric machines are silent, your machine will stitch along merrily. I have a 127 and a 66, one with the long bobbin and one with the drop in round bobbin but still have to get the one cabinet in shape to sew on.'Well, long winded me started this to welcome you from WV and tell you that you have landed in the Motherlode of quilting help and inspiration.
