    The first thing I look at when reading a post is where they live.

    I was born in Connecticut, moved to FL to take care of my mother lived there for 18 yrs, and have retired to Texas I live in a small small town called Sisterdale. I am 3 miles from my mailbox I have a roller coaster ride to get to it and it takes 30 min to 1 hr to go anywhere to shop so I shop a lot on line. I love this board look forward to reading it everyday.

    Hey you!

    That was ages ago when we used to meet. Wonder where Shari is now? I bet she is not quilting--she hated it!

    There are a few members from Alaska here although I think we are all well spread out. Frannie in Anchor Point who posted a few pages back use to live here in Fairbanks and we use to meet at my home each week. We were crocheting at the time and met through another online list. I miss being able to get together with other in the area.

    Yes, it was a long time ago but I really miss our get togethers. Wish you were going to the Quilt Festival in Sept.
    I am looking forward to it.

    Well hello, it is a small world after all, my mother lives in Yuba City and that is not far from Oakhurst...go figure, Next time I travel down that way, I will write you and see if you would like to meet up at Bear Paws and More.

    The beauty of this list is that it does put the quilters on the other side of the world or other states right next door. Just as good as my local friends! Plus, I can talk to you guys at midnight or later.

    What a great idea of identifing where we live at! I'm really shy and probably "talk" more on this message board than I do with my neighbors (we moved into a new neighborhood about 4 months ago).

    I've been reading about the tornado damage; my heart goes out to everyone that lost loved ones or homes. We had nasty storms and a tornado hit about 20 miles away near Mansfield, but it wasn't nearly as bad here as what your area of Ohio received.

    I'm in the process of putting my sewing room together; unfortunately it's not picture ready yet. If I EVER get it finished :roll: , I'll be sure to post pics. I'll look for your pics, too.

    Corie is absolutely beautiful!

    Hi! I'm from Missoula, Montana. Born and raised in Omaha, Nebraska on a farm. I moved to Missoula about 18 months ago. Making friends is the hardest thing when one relocates. The Missoula Quilting Guild is putting on a quilt show thw 25th/26th 0f this month. Getting involved in that activity has gotten me to know other quilters. If any of you are traveling this way, come by . betsy lou

    i need to look at the profile again.
    You must go to Charlton Sewing Center, it's just down the road from you. It's a very nice store, and if the owner (Cathy) is there, she will play the organ for you. The store is in an old church.
    I've been there On a day trip. Very nice. About an hour from Boston.
    I have looked it up a few times but never been there; its on my list :P
    It's a really nice store. Cathy likes to do community stuff. This past Saturday, she had an event and the "fee" was to bring a bottle of Dawn dishwashing liquid. She had a huge turnout just to bring the Dawn! She's going to send it to help get the birds cleaned from the oil spill.

    I went to In the Beginning Quilt Shop when I visited family there several years ago. WA is a beautiful state.

    I am new to this board but love it already . I am a newbie Quilter. I Love Quilting . Sometimes it is overwhelming to think about how much there is out there to learn . I really don't know if my Brain can hold all that info...lol
    You'r right up the street from where I work in Chelmsford. Have you been to Candlelight quilt shop in Chelmsford center yet? nice quilt shop.
    And I live in Chelmsford and work part time at the New England Quilt Museum in Lowell. Small world!
    Boy is it a small world. I've has given some Chistmas deckerations to the Quilt Museum over the years, but never have gone there. Also a number of their trunk shows. Loved those.
    I've been to the Quilt Museum in Lowell, it's a nice place. The American Textile History Museum is nearby. I haven't been in several years, but when a group of us did go, itt was a great place to go through and they had delicious sandwiches and soup.

I just think it makes it a little more interesting to know that someone in London, for instance, is posting something - it just adds to the overall interest in my humble opinion. Happy quilting!
    I agree! I like to see where quilters are from, too, so I don't get what this "in hiding" stuff is about. I would think just a state listing would not be too personal.
    Since there are 17 pages to this thread so far, I bet somebody has already explained this: the reason so many have "in hiding" as their location is they are probably involved in a swap...especially the Secret Quilt Angel Swap" and don't want their "angelee", to figure out who they are by having their location visible.
    It makes it more fun to be anonymous all year and then later in the year, maybe Christmas? I'm not sure, as i am not in that swap...but then they will finally all find out who their partner was. :thumbup:

    Hi everybody, I pulled my location because we are in the process of moving back to our home state. We are in Northern Virginia now, but plan on goin back to central Kentucky this summer. We've only been in VA for about 8 years, so don't really feel like we should be representives of this state. Hey, I could put "going home to KY in my location box", couldn't I.

    Guess I'm not very interesting. I not only live in the continental US, but in south central TEXAS.

    Have any of you been watching the news that showed the results of the torrential rains we had yesterday? Most people report that they are just going to dry out, clean up, and move back in.
