    What a surprise! Another Quilting Board Member......In Person

    Went to Big Lick Antique with husband-looking at Guns and guess what - I met a Quilting Board Member-We chatted for probably 30 minutes about sewing machines--How nice it was to be able to talk someone who shared the same love--and then to find out we were raised in almost the same area--Vass and Carthage,NC . Deara, it was certainly nice to meet you.

    How great is that! I too live in North Carolina, (Western / Foothills in Morganton), I'd LOVE to meet up with fellow quilter's in my area. It really is a small world
    Happiness is a form of travel...not a destination.

    I live in Stanley (near Gastonia). Have you been to Ann's Cozy Quilts in Rutherfordton? She and her husband Bill own the shop. He does all the LA and she's a great help in selecting fabric for a quilt.

    Hey Fellow Tarheels! I'm in Orange County...too bad NC is such a big state, we could all get together and play!

    Re: Fellow Quilter

    Hi Carol,

    I am so glad for you. I live in Glendon, NC, the north east corner of Moore County. Glendon is between Siler City and Carthage, NC. Maybe we could get together. I would love that. I often go to Asheboro. I am trying to learn to quilt. I just love quilts and think about the love each stitch has in it.
    Seriously, it is nice to know you are close by.
    Barbara

    I live in Bristol, TN but my daughter lives in Spindale, NC. I've been to Ann's several times. Lovely shop. Lovely fabrics.

    My son (who is my LAer) lived in Stanley, NC not too long ago--this is to the husband who does the LA work for his wife. Do you remember (or did you ever hear of Bryan Brady)????

    Sorry it has taken me this long to reply. I was overwhelmed myself meeting you too. We chat with others here on the board and wonder will I ever meet some of these people? Glad we had the opportunity to share our love for the old machines. Hubby and I like to frequent the antique shops in Ashboro from time to time. Will have to hook up and have coffee somewhere to get better acquainted.
    Blessings to you Carol.

    How wonderful for all of the ladies who have met fellow quilters through this site. Hopefully it's the beginning of long friendships!
    Creative clutter is better than idle neatness.
