Hi 

My name is Julie.  I joined the Quilter's Club yesterday.  I am not new to quilting and sewing, but I am new to message boards.  I have been sewing since I was about 8 when my Grandmother taught me.  I love to sew.  I could easily stay in my sewing room day after day doing nothing but sewing, creating, crafting, quilting.  

My big project right now is quilts for Christmas presents for my family.  I have four grown boys, four daughter-in-laws, and six grandchildren.  For years I have been promising to make them all quilts and this is the year.  I have 8 tops done so far.  

I am looking forward to getting to know some quilters here and sharing ideas.

Julie

Welcome Julie....you are going to love this place...you will soon be addicted to it. You will soon find that everyone here has a passion for quilting just like you do. But it's not all quilting that goes on here. There are all kinds of things to talk about here and you will find everyone here is very friendly. We also love to see pictures of each others work. Welcome to the madness....lol.....   :)

Welcome, Julie!  I also started with needle and thread at an early age, being instructed by my grandmother to blanket stitch around applique.  I just finished turning a spare bedroom into a sewing room and am finding that I can spend all day and into the night in this one room.  Would love to see your quilts.

Welcome Julie!  We'd love to see those 8 tops you've completed so please post pics.  Glad you've joined us and hope you'll share your knowledge and short cuts to quilting since you've been sewing since 8. Hope to see you posting a lot.

Welcome Julie. You will love it here. I also started sewing when I was 8; however, I did not start quilting until about 2.5 years ago. I got a late start on that. We look forward to seeing some pics of your quilts.

Julie Smith:
 I have 8 tops done so far.
                   Welcome, Julie !   You have taken on a huge project piecing 8 quilts is no small task. How are you going to quilt them? I sure wish I had your energy and commitment to get all these done for Christmas. You will fit right in here as so many are quilt-aholics and would rather sew than  do anything else. Look around the site as there is lots going on here and Im sure you will find something that interest you. Please show us some pics of those 8 tops. Sounds like you have a big family to sew for.    Susan
