Debbi Posted: Tue, Aug 6 2013 3:13 PM

Hi my name is Debbi. I am an avid slave to crafts of all kinds, I honestly think I work to afford my craft habit. I love to knit, which I learned at the age of 5, and then came sewing, which I learned from my mom at 10. But I didn't really enjoy laying out patterns because I always had to do it crawling on the floor and keeping cats from walking or worse lying down in the middle of the my work. I also liked shopping in Wal-mart and one day saw a really cute Fall panel and thought that would be fun to make. It was and it looked great in my new house. But during that time my Singer was finally showing its age and it was time to get a new machine. Mom let me borrow her old Bernina and I loved it. So I went down to the Bernina dealer which happened to be in a quilt shop. The things I saw that day just blew my mind up with possible projects and I was hooked. I bought a Bernina 440 QE and later the embroidery attachment. Since then my poor knitting hasn't been getting much attention but my fabric stash is now just as great as my yarn stash. With multi media being the rage I am now trying to figure out how to marry the two. Ideas?

Thank you for the kind comments, glad to know there is someone else in the area. I am relatively new to California, I spent most of my life in Savannah, GA and Bridgewater, NJ.

Debbi, I grew up in Sacramento and loved it.  Moved to Elk Grove after my children were born and then to Fernley NV as we neared retirement age.  My Dad and sister still live in the area, but my grown children and grandchildren all live here in Fernley, NV.

It sure is easy to get the quilting bug, isn't it?  My daughter asked me to try and make a simple quilt for her son 8 years ago, and I was bitten...love it, love it, love it.  

I'm pretty sure you will continue to quilt and that you'll love this site for all of the help and encouragement you will receive.  This is the most helpful and caring group of people I have ever met on the internet.
