Snugglebug Quilter Posted: Sun, Jan 16 2011 12:44 PM

Good afternoon everyone.My name is Zeba and I want to thank you all for the nice replys and for asking me to introduce myself.  I'm new to the concept of posting messages, so sorry if I don't follow the conversations very well.  It's all kinda confusing!  :)

I have been quilting for about 7 years now, and last August had a new addition to our family...My purple Gammill Vision long arm!  I have very much enjoyed working on it, and am completely addicted!  I have finaly reached a point in which I am willing to quilt for others, so I've been busy with my local quilt guild and trying to figure out ways of reaching out to other quilters.  Speaking of which, if anyone has any advice as to how to go about reaching quilters I would so much appreciate any and all advice!

In my full-time world I own a home daycare and have 2 wonderful part-time assistants.  Things have kinda slowed down in the daycare, which is allowing me to spend a few hours every day working on the long arm.  The kids in my daycare all enjoy sewing projects, making small quilts, bags and wall hangings.  One little fellow told me when he gets older he wants a small machine like the one we sew on, but not one like the big purple one!

I am looking forward to making some nice friends on this site and having fellow quilters to chat with.  I'm sure my husband and sons will also be happy...and a little bit relieved!  :)

Welcome Zeba.  What an unusual name.  My ex had an aunt named Reba.  Hope you are able to figure things out here quickly and make yourself a gallery so we can enjoy your quilts.  There is a group of gals from here that are planning a retreat in the Des Moines area in the Fall.  You might want to check that out.

Welcome Zeba...do you mind me asking where you live? It is great to have you! My best advice for figuring things out is to keep plugging along. Eventually it will all make sense.

Welcome Zeba

You will absolutely love it here! everyone is very nice and helpful. And you have a LA! How cool. Sometimes people look for others that want them to quilt for them so you can advertise your services there! iTS CALLed the Marketplace and people buy/sell things there so I would think you could sell your services there also. We love to see each other quilts that we make its such eye candy for us so please post some in the gallery when you have time. Enjoy your time here and don't be afraid to ask ?

Hi.  I just wanted to thank everyone for the very nice welcome.  I think it is so true when they say quilters are probably the nicest and friendliest people on the planet!  I'm looking forward to being a regular here and learning a lot about all of you.  I think this must be a great place to learn more tips and to be inspired by all the lovely quilts!!
