    Hi Tristansnana,
    I'm in southern NH, close to the MA border. Been quilting for about 7 years now. I have a sister in Rochester, and her 14 year old daughter wants to come stay with me for a few days at the Christmas break so I can teach her to sew!

    Hi Tristansnana-
    I'm in Southern NH, Windham to be exact! Right now, we are snowbirds, going to Henderson, NV in January and then back in April, but right now I'm here! Glad to be back in NE, even though just for part of the year. I was born and bred in North Andover, MA, so it's great to be back in the area, and NH is a very beautiful state! Looking forward to 'chatting' with you and others who have answered you!

    it is celebrating 2 years in business this coming weekend.............lots of sales.............

    I love getting together with other quilters.

    Hi Jennie Penny, I also live in Rochester. Perhaps we could meet some time when you come to visit your sister.

    I love Bits and Pieces! They have wonderful sales. I get a lot of Moda there for 4.99 a yard. They are located in Pelham NH. Worth the drive. I love when they have Fat qtr sales for 1.00. I am waiting for the next big sale.

    Your post really caught my eye. We come from Massachusetts right on the NH border and my brother lives in Plaistow. If NH didn't have such snow and cold weather I never would have left. Miss it and everyone there. It is a special part of the world. Will be visiting in July and will definitely check out the quilting shop.

    I've been there myself, even before they moved across the street. Unfortunately, haven't caught one of those sales you mentioned...but sure wouldn't mind if I did. I have a particular interest in Fat Qtrs...have made most all of my quilts from them. I can't understand why so many quilters don't want to bother with them. Just love 'em. Maybe we'll meet someday at Bit & Pieces. You never know.

    I have a friend who lives up that way, I wonder if she knows about the guild? I'll have to ask her.

    Hi and welcome from Keene
    I didn't see your post when you put it up - found it now searching for something else.
    I'm in Keene
    Belong to Cheshire Guild in Keene; meets 2nd Wednesday of the month 6:30 to 9 at the Rec Center on Washington St.
    Also to SooNipi Guild in Newport; meets 3rd Thursday 10 am to 1 or 2 pm at the Community Room of Sugar River Bank on Main Street (Rte 10)
    A small group of us meet occasionally at the Keene Public Library, usually when we want to lay out blocks or sandwich a quilt and want input from others. PM me your e-mail if interested and I'll put you on the list to notify. We'll be there this coming Tuesday, January 10 hours 10 am to 2 pm - Kay Fox Room in the basement - huge room, good lighting, lots of outlets, big tables.
    There is another small group of SooNipi quilters who meet at the Free Library on Rte 10 in Newport the 1st Thursday of the month noon to 3 pm.
    Finally, a small number of us can meet every Wednesday at Gail Peck's shop Quilters Workshop Rte 10 (Main Street) in Newport. 10 am to whenever. She's a lovely woman and it's one of the 2 shops left I buy from in person (I'm a online shopper).
    I seldom go to a Guild meeting nor to the Library group in Newport.
    If you wish to come, I'd be happy to go that day to introduce you.

    Just letting you Folks from Southern NH and northern MA know that there is a lady in Nashua, NH who has an entire room full of high quality fabric that she is downsizing. Her husband passed away five years ago and she has no desire to quilt ever again. I went into her home this week and she led me downstairs. I thought she would just have some FQs and misc. yardage. Boy did she have a lot. I said "oh my goodness" when I saw everything. She said "oh my goodness is right. There's thousands of dollars in fabric here, and I just don't want any of it."

    So I bought a ton of stuff, average price was about $2.50 a yard. Yes, Robert Kaufman and Timeless Treasures and
    Moda and all the good stuff. I was so tempted to buy more but I have to tell myself that I already have all the fabric I need for the next 30 years and I can't let my habit become an unhealthy obsession! If anybody would like to contact this lady, please PM me.
    She would be very happy to unload it, and it's clearly not making her happy to have it sit there in her house. She asked me to spread the word. I say all this for those who want to personally buy from her, not because I have any desire to buy on anybody's behalf and start shipping packages. I don't have the time.
