    Quilters in WV

    Are there any fellow quilters in or near my area of Elkview, WV. I am approximately 10 minutes from Charleston. Thanks.

    Hi Joy. I live in Amma (about 16 miles from Elkview). Would love to meet another quilter. I don't belong to any groups or guilds (not sure if there is one around), so don't often get to talk with another quilter. Just met one last month from another group I belong to from MN who was passing through WV, and it was so lovely to sit and talk with her for a little while.

    Hi Joy,
    I'm from Lincoln County. Right beside of Kanawha County. I live about 45 minutes from South Ridge WalMart. That's where I do most of my shopping.

    I just finished the quilting seminar in Ripley last Thursday.
    Put it on your calendar for next year. There were over 300 quilters there with 23 teachers having classes in all techniques. It is at Cedar Lakes Conf Center in Ripley.

    It is so good to know there are quilters near me! :) It would be great to meet each other someday. So close and yet so far way, small world. PM me whenever you want to chat a while. Anytime you come to Charleston/Elkview, let me know and we can meet.

    Hi,

    I live in Hurricane and work in Charleston. Very new to quilting; I just finished piecing my second top and haven't tried to quilt them yet. I love seeing everyone's projects on this board.

    Wow, that is cool! We have relatives that live in a little town called Whitmer (near Elkins). Yes, it is wonderful to talk with everyone :)

    Hey wanted to let you all know that WalMart at South Ridge has batiks today first time I have seen them there, very pretty and good quality or at least I think it is for only 3.97 a yard, great deal, so those of you who are close may want to check it out.

    Not Charlestown in the eastern panhandle, Elkview near Charleston, the capital of WV. Far from either of us.

    I have never been to one. What is required and what do you have to do?

    Hi I'm in Parkersburg, been quilting since 2002 when I retired from GE.

    If you're looking for quilt retreat there are several GREAT ones at North Bend State Park. In fact, the're having a mini one next weekend. In Feb. and Mar. they have week long ones ... they are so much fun. The 2012 events are not on the calendar yet but here's 2011

    Here's my blog write up from the 2010 Feb. retreat. Guess I forgot to do the 2011 retreat.

    Hi Ladies,
    I live in Putnam county and work in Dunbar. There are a couple of guilds. The one in Kanawha county goes to that event in Ripley every year, I do believe, but I was just trying to get on their website and it isn't working. I think it's the Kanawha Valley Quilter's Guild. They meet every Monday morning, which is inconvenient for me.
    There is also one in Huntington. Others I'm sure, but those are the ones I remember in this region. I don't belong to one yet but recently met a new friend from a yahoo group that lives in Charleston. I'm a brand new quilter but she is also teaching me basic sewing. We've been meeting at her house each weekend.
    Been considering setting up something at my church, but I don't know. I just want to get together with others of a like mind and sew! :)

    Beth
