Hello,

My name is Jen and I just joined QCA and I'm very excited! I live in Rockford, Illinois, but I am originally from Attica, NY. I live with my husband and two cats. I am an addictions counselor at a local agency and I am working on my counselor certification/credential.

I have been quilting for about 5 years, with a 2 year hiatus after a car accident that broke my arm. I've made about 15 finished projects, many more in progress! I love fabric and I have quite the stash that I love to look at and fantasize about what to do with it someday! Now that I am done with my Master's degree, I am looking forward to actually quilting again! 

I'm looking forward to learning a lot here, because I have a lot to learn!

Jen

Hi Jen,

Welcome! I think there are a few of us that have addiction problems here. Fabriholics, Quilt Addictions, Sewing Machine addictions, etc. LOL ;D I know where Attica, NY is as I live in Western NY. You will enjoy the people here.

Hi Bonnie,

May I ask from where in WNY? I miss my home terribly! 

I haven't yet admitted that I am powerless over fabric and that my life has become unmanageable, so I guess I'm good. :)

Hi Jen. Welcome to this wonderful site. I am not addicted to fabric, but my husband says I'm a hoarder. I don't think I have a hoarding or addition problem. I just like fabric. I really, really like fabric. Oh, did I mention, I like fabric. LOL

Welcome, Jen. Hope you enjoy this site.

BTW, Kris, are you still on here? I have a question for you. My sister won a certificate for a free membership on QCA, and after 8 weeks she finally got her membership. However, she says that she received a user ID but was told to use her current password. Well, she can't log on without a password. So what should she do? Can you help, my dear computer wiz friend????

Elaine,

on the sign-in page there is a "forgot password" option. she can click there. The password or a link to reset it should be sent in email.

Thanks so much for your help, Kris. I knew my bestie friend from VB would be able to help me. My sister thanks you, too.

Welcome Jen.

Oh no ladies we may be in trouble.  Jen is an addiction counselor and you know that we are all addicted to quilting, fabric, notions, QCA, and all things quilting related.   I guess we had better inform Jen right up front that none of us are willing to have an intervention.   And maybe if she sticks around she will have all the same addictions as the rest of use.

Hope you enjoy your time with us and realize that most of us are nuts....ROFLOL
