    Ask some of your local fabric stores for names of local quilt guilds. I think you could find some willing ladies to help you.

    What a nice idea. I belong to a guild and have a friend that comes to shows with me but she is a sometimes quilter. I would love to have someone close byt to bounce ideas and share with also.

    Frog 90, When I moved, newly retired, I started quilting as a way to meet people. I took a beginner class (8 weeks), then was asked to join our local guild. Many quilt shops have "free sew" days or "quilt till you wilt" days or nights that are great opportunities to meet new people with similar interests. I had to force myself to talk w/people, ask questions like how long they've been quilting etc. Now I have lots of quilting buddies that I can call to go shopping, ask about fabric colors, swap fabrics, tools etc.

    If you were in Montana I'd invite you to join us for free sew Wednesday or our next guild meeting.

    I hope you find a buddy soon.

    Marie M.

    hope you find one -- it's great -- I found mine here and we email most days and exchange pictures and just chat -- and we get together since she lives only a few miles away -- good luck

    Hey Fran isn't she close to you? I was thinking about you when I read her post of where she is located at...maybe you & Mona could start a quilt group with her?
    I just talked to a couple of ladies at church on Sunday to see if we could get a group together. We are planning to do so on the 1st & 3rd Thurs of each month. I just need to go to the board meeting next Monday and get it approved. I don't see any problems with doing it. Thurs are free days at the church. Nothing going on there on that day. Wish us luck. Maybe I will be able to (finally) get some of my UFO's completed during that time.
    Happy Stitchin' Linda B.

    We are all afloat on the quilting sea. This site with all the wonderful people is a lifeboat to me.

    I would enjoy being your Buddy, but it would be a long distance relationship. I only get to your area once a year. LOL

    Would you like to move to Florida? Masschusetts that is. I have no buddies either.
