    In July, a thread was posted about adopting a new quilter as a quilting mother or buddy? I know there were LOTS of posts. I was wondering if everyone found a match with another quilter or are there still those out there who could use a buddy. I would like to get a list together of those who need help or a buddy and one for those who are available to be a buddy. How does that sound? Would everyone work with me?

    I would be happy to help anyone who needs help, or adopt an individual that needs help.
    I could answer questions on most any type of sewing or the use of their machines.

    I have only been quilting about 5 years so I still have lots to learn, but I have also learned so much. I'd be willing to help (if I can) but would love to have people to go to if I had a question.

    I have quilted for my children in years past, but would like to be adopted since things have changed so much since my kids were small.

    I'm a little confused. What does it mean to be adopted?

    It means a quilter with experience will help you out when you ask. Kind of like a buddy system.

    I don't mind adopting can sign me up, far from knowing all but will try to help... have been sewing quilting several years. :)
    Have found it useful to just throw the question out, often many useful suggestions come back.
    Have at times felt adopted by all!! :)

    That is correct. If you need help or want to help out, this is the place to be. Many of us have quilting buddies but many still do not. Hopefully this list will help pair you up with someone.

    I think I would like to be adopted. I have only finished two quilts and have made two tops that need to be since may of last year. I have learned alot just by watching this board, but know there is so much more to learn (I have joined the group that is doing the Farmer's Wife Sampler just so that I can learn more) I am a person that wants to eventually know how to "do it all" as others say. I know I can machine piece and am learning how to hand peice. As far as the quilting, I am totally chicken and am afraid to even try. I also want to learn how to applique and paper piece. I guess what I am trying to say is that I am totally new and don't know much but want to learn so much more (that is when I have time and my 4 kids want to coroperate with me :lol: )

    Someone could adopt me. I am very new to quilting, even though I have sewn garments and crafts since I was a kid. This is a whole new learning curve for me.

    Well I like to be adopted too. I'm quilting from 2008 but don't have so much experience because most of the time I work by hand. And I want to do all my projects at the same time and thats why my work is not as neat as it should be. I want to improve my skills and also my machine sewing skills.

    Thank you so much C! My daughter just laughed because I said I now had a twin :LOL: She thinks I'm weird because she has now entered the tween years since she is 11. She is also learning how to quilt and I'm loving every minute of it.

    I am far from a professional and don't have alot of time right now but would love to adopt someone who is a beginner! PM me or sign me up with someone. I am now in Iowa in the process of moving to Nebraska. (Moving ourselves so is taking months literally!!)

    I'm not a beginner, but I know a little bit about a lot of things. But there are several areas of quilting that I am lacking knowledge in. However, I would like to find a quilting sister/brother to bounce things around with. Thanks!
