    I am so proud and chuffed

    I have a Patchwork class that I hold every Wednesday in our local village hall, it has been going for nearly 2 years and one of my ladies has a lot of health and pain problems and finds quilting so therapeutic. She has been doing lovely work and her family are amazed and very supportive. Anyway one of her GD showed such an interest Ceri put together a starter quilting set from an old sewing machine to FQs and Rulers. To give her additional support I have put together a pre-cut D9P kit and will send her it next week. She is only about 28 years old so it's great to have a new young quilter joining us all. I feel so chuffed that I have spread the love of quilting to yet another generation.

    That is a wonderful thing to do, for both of you. Quilting and sewing is an art that should not go away. So hugs (()) to you and anyone who helps the craft go on.

    How nice! (I'll admit to having to look up "chuffed". We Americans don't always speak English all that well!)

    Where I live we would say, either "chuffed" or "made up". It means, really pleased.

    Your generosity may be the beginning of a future quilting artist! Thanks for the evidence of the consideration all quilters seem to have for others!

    And since you didn't tell us what "chuffed" means, I'll have to look it up too. lol

    Learned a new word today - chuffed. I just finished explaining what stuffed shirts means to my 25 y/o daughter so I guess it's a good day for learning

    I would like to say thank you for your encouragement to this woman and her GD. Wonderful feeling to help others along the way!!

    That is so wonderful. I have a "new" DIL of about a year. She showed interest so I bought her a new Janome and she is working hard at learning to sew. She is doing a great job and I am so proud of her. I also have a granddaughter who is a crafter and trying to learn. It makes me so happy to see them learn, especially since Home Ec in school is a thing of the past.

    The 'Mission' of our local Quilt Guild is teaching. Another member and I hold classes once a month from Jan. to May for ladies in our community. We started with only 7 attendees, the first year and had 17 the second year. I wonder how many we will this coming year. We also teach 4H quilting. I'm in the process of quilting another quilt for one of the ladies and I've seen a huge difference in her piecing. Gives me great satisfaction.

    How great that you are encouraging a young person to learn the craft. I have given machines, materials, and rulers to 4 young women so far and they are all quilters.
