    I am 69 and probably one of the older ones here. I started quilting in 1980. My hubby loves to see me in my studio piecing a quilt top and sometimes comes in just to sit and chat while I am working away.

    Well I'm 62 in body but only about 22 in mind and started quilting two years ago when I retired from work. Would have loved to have done it earlier but I didn't have either the time or the money, still, I'm making up for lost time now.

    That's actually a great idea! Use your stash to line your coffin....spend eternity wrapped in your favorite fabrics. I may actually make a quilt of my favorite fabrics to be buried with. Seriously! 8-)

    All the females in my family are quilters. I started when I was 25 yrs old, and have been quilting for 40 years now. It is so much fun. My cats love it when I quilt.

    I'm 29 years old and have been quilting for years. I'd say at least since I was 20. So don't let your husband say it is a Grandma thing to be quilting. I love this hobby.

    Your husband should check his facts. That's the beauty of quilting as a hobby it covers all ages and we all can learn from each other young or older. It allows for males & females. I guess all that most quilters would ask is "no bad manners"
    It's also something that you can put on hold or pick up at whim. On the whole I find most quilters are willing to help each other but also non quilters as well.
    My one regret is that I didn't discover quilting 20 or 30 years earlier. Will just have to sew faster to use up my stash.
    Happy quilting everyone.

    I'm 33 and a beginning quilter. I started knitting several years ago, though! I get some kidding about my hobbies, but doesn't bother me. It's what I like to do!

    What would be an appropriate hobby in his opinion?

    I just turned 55 and tried to make my first quilt 40 years ago, but really just got back to quilting 5 years ago. Just to keep your husband from taking his his stereotypes too seriously however, my former neighbor recently became a grandmother at 36 so you can tell him you qualify age wise. And many men quilt so they couldn't possibly be grandmothers.

    I'm a 45 yr old mom of 6 kids...started quilting 26 years ago. Sat down with a stack of gingham fabric and a pair of scissors and made a quilt for my first daughter. Did not think about looking at a pattern or a book...just knew what I wanted and made it.

    I am 63, just retired yesterday, started quilting 7yrs ago. Wish I had started when I was younger. There is so many quilts I want to make.Age is only a number. My mom uses to say" In my mind I only feel 40." That is a great way to feel when you are in your 70.
    Happy Quilting everyone and may we all be Quilting when we are 80

    Hi, I am 71 and have been quilting since 1983and caught the bug. I am now helping a 8 yr boy to sew. He was only 5 when his grandmother was teaching gd to quilt. His attention span is only about an hour, But that is ok. I learned to sew at the age 7 in 4H and won lots of blue ribbons. Gensquilts
