    Would anyone else be interested in a virtual section for hand quilting? Since I've started it seems like since there are relatively few posts on hand quilting, they get lost easily (pushed down the list) and it would be nice to have them in one place to refer to.

    Actually, a section for FMQ would be nice too, I think. It comes up more often, but having all the threads on tips and tricks in one place would be handy.

    I'd love to see a section for hand quilting only(since I'm trying to hand quilt all my quilts), but don't know if there's really very many of us on here.
    You're right about it getting pushed down the list, but there's a lot of posts every day.

    YOu can pm the MOderator of PatriceJ and discuss it with her. She would be the one to yeah or nah....LOL. Sounds wonderful since I am a handquilter also. Good luck.

    If they cannot do this, then a suggestion would be to make sure the word "handquilt" is in your topiic and we can "search" for the word and find the posts. Or go to Personal Diary section, and start a thread there for Handquilters. WE can go in and post every day and it's all in one place. :)

    Some of my stipple hand quilting. I am a hand quilter and proud. LOL

    I would love a section for hand-quilting. It may get looked down on as "old-fashioned" but I like it. :)

    Hand quilters are few these days with all the new things BUT...........we are still in demand. LOL. I do hand quilting for people, and always have a "job" going. I love that art and I passed it on to my Granddaughter, who can machien quilt and hand stitch. Her Mimi is a quilter too but machines. So she has learned both. I like the personal touch and love put into a hand quilt. More time, but oh so worth it.

    Thanks Debbie for the suggestions. I thought before I PM'd Patrice I would see if there was any interest or if it was just me. I do try to put "hand quilting" or similar in my topic titles to make them searchable, but topic titles are one of those things some people just don't utilize like they ought to... :D :D

    I can't imagine a hand quilter feeling looked down upon. I have nothing but admiration for someone with that skill. I don't handquilt, but I treasure any hand quilted items I have.

    If you start a Personal Diary page, we can check there. Call it Diary of a Hand Quilter, I will start it if you like. But I have one already so thought you might or someone else. :):)
    We can post pictures in there and everything.

    I'd like to see one. I don't hand quilt much, but I think this would be a great addition. Along that line - if there are people in our internet community that hand quilt for others (for pay of course) I'd be interested in that. I get inquiries for that every so often and don't know where to refer the calls to.

    I hand quilt too, which is why there are so many WIPs in my sewing room! DH said hand quilting is my therapy session, and I reminded him that I was actually saving him $75 an hour this way.
