I notice a lot of you need instructions!"LOL a lot!!!!!
    Hello Taffy! Also, you may want to comment on some other posts, for example in the picture section, even to say "nice quilt". I see that you have only posted 8 times!! will look forward to seeing more of you!!

    I personally like when members list where they are from. Has given me at least one opportunity to meet one other fairly close QB member in person and after the holidays I'm going to meet another. Glad you wrote coopah!

    I agree with you, I have met some great friends on the net over the years, but none of them quilt how funny lol If anyone knows anyone from Fort Smith, Arkansas or close please let me know. I need help to learn or to give me lessons. I know a shop but her class wont begin until after the first of the year.
    Thanks

    I've had my state on mine since I joined the board and no harm has come to me.

    I don't have a problem listing my general whereabouts but a lot of QBers don't seem to be aware that this is a public forum and can give more info than they perhaps would if they realised this.

    I have read everyone's location as I scrolled through all 11 pages in the hope of seeing another Aussie without any luck (I hope I didn't miss anyone). I find it very interesting to see where everyone is from, especially when mention is made of weather/wildlife etc. that I would not find in my area or even perhaps in my country.

    Hi! Waving from Poland.

    I don't read over in that thread, but I think there is a thread for new members to tell a bit about themselves and to say hi. It's called "Introduce yourself."

    However, I just join in threads that interest me--if you do, eventually people will recognize your name/picture and be friendly--or at least as friendly as is possible on a forum. It is all in print and nothing in person...so it is harder to feel the warm fuzzies.

    I'm glad you are with us.

    Hello, Taffy! We really are a friendly group, but it is a massive sized group also. Like someone else said , post a thread that catches people's attention or a picture and you'll get great feedback

    Yes, mine does, but I still have the $5,573 charge posted on my bill, because it takes a month or two to get it off. In the meantime, it looks like I'm a slackard because I am not paying my bill for the tickets to Argentina. They called me within minutes of the transaction, but it is still on my bill.

    Hi Taffy! We can't post a "hi" to you if we don't know you exist. You have only posted 8 comments, so sadly you got lost in the shuffle. You have to pipe up, or you will just slip past us. We are a very gregarious bunch, and hopefully you will take about half of what we say seriously.

    As a result of posting at least our state, we have formed a group of QB members here in the upstate of South Carolina. So far there are six (6) of us in the group. We've gotten together for lunch a couple of times, and met at my house one time, then Some of us are going to Mary Jo's Friday together. It's been real neat to get together. One girl has been willing to drive two hours to meet with us. So thank you for putting SC or upstate SC on your profile. Margie

Since I am only there part time and it is sometimes difficult for me to get out because I have Parkinson disease, I would like to find people who could come over and sew for the day. I have friends in my FL neighborhood who get together about every 2 weeks and sew for the day. Thgroup changes as some can't come but we have a good time.
    Jane, what part of Tenness do you spend the summers in?

    Remember when you were the "shy" kid in class and never raised your hand? Then your mom and dad got your report card and it said, "does not participate in class activities"? And your parents wanted to know why? Well, I was one of those kids. Then I grew up and got married, and moved to a new city, a very large city Detroit. I lived in an apartment and when my DH was at work, I cried because I didn't know anyone. Then one day I saw a lady across the way have a new sewing machine delivered. So I bucked up and went across the way and knocked on her door. She was so pleased to know there was someone else who sewed in the apartment complex. We actually became slight friends, even though she was much older than me. I decided then that shy didn't work in this world. So after that I forced myself to become friends with strangers. Here we are on the QB and I have made friends from all over the world. My DD thinks I "have no life". She has no clue. If I have a question about something, I can ask my friends here, and always get an answer, usually the right answer. So, we are not mind readers....speak up and you will be spoken to. Probably more than you wanted.

    *LOL* I hadn't googled my handle for quite awhile. I counted at least four others using the same one by the time I got to page ten.

    The last time I googled my handle a couple of years ago,I was a busy poster: I was male and lived in Germany. Now I see that I am a female and living in Germany.

    Good trick, that!
