Hi all, I joined a couple of weeks ago and I am not really too sure what to expect.  Hoping to subscribe to some good magazines, get some answers from much more seasoned quilters ... 

Have made a few quilts since January, and two are out for machine quilting - just purchased a Brother Q 1500 so that I will be able to finish the quilts on my own.  

Is it just me or is this an addiction?  Holy cow, I can't seem to stop!  It's helping me with my Weight Watchers focus, and keeping my mood level after very stressful days at work.  Only problem is that I need to find time to sleep :)

Anyway, glad to be here.

Cheers, d

Welcome Diane,

It is an addiction of the safest kind...except maybe on the pocket book LOL. Everyone here is is very friendly and very helpful so I hope you enjoy your time here. I find quilting a great stress reliever as well and boy do I ever need that some days.

Welcome Diane, I lived in San Jose while going to college.  The bay area is such a busy place.

Welcome, Dianne.  After spending my first 2 years in North Dakota, I spent the next 50 or so in the Sacramento area.  Now, living just east of Reno, NV.  Hope you enjoy your time with us.
