    I was just wondering as I was reading some of the post about this. How many out there have close friends they have quilt/sew days where they get together & work on whatever project they have going.

    I would love to have that, but there aren't many quilters here on Guam. :(

    I would enjoy that too. There is a quilt guild in Raleigh which is not far but I would like to find a small group, sort of a quilting bee kind of setting. I believe it would inspire me because I'm really in a dry spell right now. I've almost forgotten what my sewing machine looks like lol

    Oh, mine do too.
    I told them they need to come over and jusr try it. They said they would, but it's too far for them to drive. UGH!
    But, they are always wanting me to go to their houses, which I do, but they won't make the drive to me. Not right, I'm telling ya!

    If you look on NC map and find the Uwharrie NationalForest, that's where I' am. In a little community called Ophir! I,m about 2 hrs from Raliegh.

    I live in the boonies, and quilt on a floor frame :D

    Don't know where Clayton is, will look on map also! :wink:

    I am a loner with the exception of the classes I take at my LQS.
    I have a couple friends that quilt so I can bounce ideas off them and show them things but the actual quilting is done by myself.

    Since my mom passed away 2 yrs ago. I'm all alone. No friends except on the computer. I mean I have "live" friends here but they all work and have their own lives and excitement to them is buying at Walmart. They don't quite get the idea of making it themselves....... Oh well, I have my 3 furbabies to keep me company

    I have quilting friends but we usually go it alone. I did spend three months in my old quilt room with one friend making her grand daughter a quilt and that convinced me I needed more room, Now I have a nice new quilt room that I can't quilt in cause the house is a disaster and I have to get that done before I have no DH either.

    I am a lone quilter in that I do all my quilting by myself. Since I have moved and have the time, I joined a guild. Their meetings are once a month and there is also a sewing day the 4th Tuesday of the month. I have not been able to get to the sewing day yet, but hope to make it this month!
    The meetings keep me motivated and I come home all fired up. Then the real world kicks in and I realize that I was just dreaming.

    I quilt alone too - mind I prefer it that way as sometimes. I do like to have my quiet time, even though I have been told I border on the line of insanity with my outgoing personality. Who needs friends when your being told that huh. LOL

    I'm a loner when it comes to quilting and sewing. But I do have several friends who also sew and quilt. We usually meet once a month, eat, talk, eat and show everyone what we're working on. It's great fun!

    Lately since I have set up a room to sew in, I've done quite a bit on my own, but generally my mom comes over and we work on projects together.

    I usually quilt at home - just me. However, there is a group of us who do get together - tomorrow, for instance!, to quilt together sometimes. We are always showing each other our quilts, table runners, etc. We shop together often. We've recruited one new quilter in the last year!! Progress. Maybe more this next year. I like quilting at home alone and with other too.

    I'm a lone quilter. My neice and I used to work together a bit, but she moved to Iowa and that left me alone again! I take occasional classes at my LQS but that's about it.

    I'm a lone quilter too. No one in my circle of family or friends quilts, or have the time right now to learn.
