    Hi everyone - I am from Southern Wisconsin,(Fort Atkinson originally) but work brought us to Florida. Now live in Maclenny (outside Jacksonville.) A whole new world, and we plan on getting back to Wisconsin when and if Real Estate market ever normalizes. Good to hear from all of you around the country - world.

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.

    Reading questions and replies from all over the world reminds me that it is truly a small world when it comes to like interests. I have travelled internationally, and if I happen to find a shop with quilts/patchwork, I feel right at home.

    I'm in northwest Ohio, just a few miles from where the tornado went through last night and demolished a high school, and 3 people lost their lives. But my fabric is fine! We're in the process of finishing my sewing room so not only do I like to see how widespread quilting is, I love to see the rooms where it's enjoyed

    I agree, we might even find quilting friends close to us as isnthatodd did. We are in the same state but a few hundred miles apart. So city and state is nice.

    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

    Hi Bobbielinks.. I'm in Joplin.. not far from you.. compared to where others live! Bet we could run into each other at the Quilt Sampler in Spgfld.. or perhaps at F&M Fabrics?? That would be fun wouldn't it!

    Hi to all. A real newbie (joined the other day). I am in Gilford NH and am always interested in my "fellow" quilters from the great state of NH.
    Can chalk up a job I once had a the mecca of quilting-Keepsake Quilting, Center Harbor, NH....but that's another story.
    Looking forward to chatting with everyone.

    I grew up in Richardson! Just a bit down the road from you! I now live in gorgeous Rapid City, South Dakota. I am hoping to meet one of the quilters on this board on Tuesday.

    I lived in Sacramento for 12 years. It really is a small world!

    I love the Quilting Board, and I love the people here. I sometimes post, sometimes just lurk, but it is an awesome place to be. I live in a little town about 30 miles north of Waco, Texas.

    Oh I love Waco! Baylor University is beautiful. I was born and raised in the Dallas area and lived there until 1994 when I moved to Sacramento, CA. Now I live in Rapid City, SD not very far from Mt Rushmore. I so love this board!

    Your peonies in your picture profile are just beautiful. They are one of my favorite flowers. Jean

    The reason for me is because I didn't know how to do a profile. Consequently it labeled me "in hiding" although I'm really not. lol

    Hi Sewslow, I'm in Ferndale, WA, and it's raining here too..
    I just Googled Ferndale and it sounds like a wonderful place, in spite of rain. Too far to buzz over to quilt together, though.

    I, too, really enjoy checking out where all the quilters are from. It's so neat to be able to connect with people from anywhere/everywhere!
