    Hi,

    I was wondering if there are any quilters here on this quilting forum from Indiana, USA.

    I am a beginner quilter, age 52 and love to go to the quilt shops and shows.

    Come on Hoosiers, lets chat! I am joining a quilting guild next month in Anderson, Indiana

    Hello Karen

    I'd join you if I could - boo hoo. Unfortunately I'm miles away in the UK. Maybe another time. Enjoy whichever show you decide to visit & I hope you find someone to share your day with.

    I'm off tomorrow to a show here in the UK - hoping to find some E Burns stuff there - wish me luck.

    Hi,

    Thank you all for the nice welcome. I am Karen, age 52 and live in Fairmount, Indiana (Grant County). I went to my first guild meeting last week and met some new friends there and going to join the guild next month. Also some of the ladies from that guild meets the 3rd Thursday of each month and has a pitch in and sew day. This will be fun for next week as I am looking forward to it.

    I am trying to find other crafters in Indiana so we can have fun going to quilt shows etc. together and meet up.

    I need to go for now storming here and need to get off computers, chat later on bye for now.

    Come on Indiana Hoosiers friends come to this board and let us know what crafts you make, where the quilt shows are at in Indiana so all of us can enjoy in the fun.

    Karen :)

    Karen,
    I don't live too far from you. About 6 miles from montpelier out in the country. You almost have to go by my house to get to Berne. I usually try to get there if I can.

    Dern, my DH is going to Indianapolis tomorrow for a few weeks on Business. I usually take this business trip with him but I have been sick and not up to going. I am originally from Sharpsville Indiana, lived there until I was 12 then folks moved to South Carolina.

    I didnt realize how many Indiana Quilters there were on here. WOW.

    Hi Karen,

    I am from Elwood...not far from Fairmount at all. I am also 52. I am not part of a guild....not a great deal of extra time. I teach kdg and my husband and I have 3 children. Our son is 26 and on his own, and our daughters are 21 and 19...both college students. I am trying to finish several of my projects...but, I keep starting new things!

    Hi from Carmel, Indiana!

    If you're in Anderson, you're not far away at all.

    Did you join the Indianapolis guild? We just moved here last July, and I just joined in January. It's pretty impressive--several hundred members and they bring in well-known quilters to speak and then do workshops the next day or two.

    The Bloomington show a month or so ago was amazing, and I'm told it's that good every year.

    Look forward to meeting you!

    Hi,

    We will need to try to set a day for all of us to meet. I am in Fairmount (Grant County), Indiana.

    I am now 53 years old, married, but no children but we have a cute spoiled dog. I am still working on my 1st quilt which is an Eleanor Burns quilt in a day Lovers Knot pattern which I am now machine quilting.

    I learned how to make the hexagons and made a cute pincushion cover. I want to make a hexagon lapquilt as they are so fun to make. I am looking for other small projects to learn to quilt.

    I hope to chat with more of you and welcome any Indiana friends!

    Karen

    Hi all from Columbus, IN! I just stumbled across this site while searching for patterns and quilting tips. I'm definitely a beginning quilter, with a desire to learn. My grandmother quilted, and made many beautiful pieces. I hope to follow in those footsteps.
