    I am a bit nervous of that, but there is a lady who will share the 'burden' due to my husbands ill health I can't make 100% commitment, so need the support of everyone, they all seemed really keen and willing to be active in the set up and running so let's see how it goes yippee!!!

    That is one of my most enjoyable days, is the day our quilt guild meets. You are going to love being a part of something you like so good.

    Congratulations! The other ladies may see how much fun patchwork is and they may want to learn how too. And also remember if you buy locally you are not paying for shipping and handling. Have fun.

    I don't belong to an official quild, but me and a bunch of the local ladies meet at the church (where a few of them are members)on Tuesday nights and every now and then have a full-day Saturday with a potluck. Then, we head home in time to start dinner! My DH is so good to me that he usually has dinner planned and made (or started) before I get home.

    That is wonderful! I don't know a soul who quilts. The local group here meets during the day on Tuesdays--I'm always working! I'm so glad you've found some quilting friends! I know you'll have a great time.

    Thanks Molly, it's a shame you can't find out who attends and arrange to meet up on your days off or evenings maybe

    Your Spanish group produces a wonderful newsletter Izy. I enjoyed browsing through your gallery - lovely work.

    The good work is all done by Rachel and her husband set up the website, it is so good, she updates every Sunday.

    Well my page hasn't changed much since I left, I wil have to send over some pictures of the last few quilts so she can update me.

    Thanks for the lovely comments, I will pass them on to Rachel

    :D :thumbup:

    Oh, I for sure have to jump on this bandwagon! Whine for me too please, LOL! I'm so glad your wish came true. Don't you get three? You should wish we all (the QB) get a big bundle of dollars. If it's gonna work for one, why not all of us.;o) :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Izy--if I lived nearer I would ask if I could come along too---our group has diminished so much that we meet in each other's houses now.

    Great news! Not only will you have companionship and inspiration but you will probably entrap.... I mean interest people new to quilting. I read recently that the average age for quilters is 62. We need to constantly try to spread our special form of insanity.
