Carol Posted: Fri, Nov 5 2010 10:50 AM

Hello everyone,

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.

Cheers!

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!
