My name is Carol and I live in Athens - Ontario, that is. I don't speak Greek, but no one else here does either! ( I may wear a toga occasionally, but that's another story)
I have been quilting for several years, and have taken to machine embroidery in the last two. I take classes at my local quilt shop, the Taylor Sewing Center in Brockville, Ontario, and even taught my first class this fall.
Now that I am retired, I have more time to indulge in my hobbies, which include lots of crafting such as needlepoint, rug punch, beading and of course quilting.
I recently joined QCA and am enjoying the hours I am spending on the computer, exploring the possibilities.

A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars.

Welcome Carol! I am so impressed that you have taught a quilting class! I will remember that when I have questions! I've never been to Ontario but it is on my list of places to get to soon so it's good to know of a quilt shop in the area. Enjoy!
