Hello everyone. Have been sewing since I was a teenager but just started quilting 3 years ago, when my husband bought me a new sewing machine for Christmas. Yes! He is a catch! I have only completed 3 quilts but I don't get to sew all the time. I'm hoping that is going to change. I'm not that good with computers so if you will please have patience with me I'd be grateful. I'm hoping this will help me improve my skills in both areas. Excited to be a part.
OH my goodness Edith. Please don't be intimidated. You will have so much fun here. Everyone is so friendly and helpful. They are so generous with their information and help. I've been sewing for a long time also but only started quilting 2.5 years ago. Hope to see pics of your quilts. Welcome Edith.

Hi Edith. Welcome.
Quilters are people who strip so they won't go topless.
Well you managed your first post just fine (complete with avatar/profile pic), so I think you've got the hang of things already. Don't hesitate to post quilting questions or website questions, and welcome to QCA!

Welcome Edith, Where are you located. We have quilting friends from all over the world. We really enjoy sharing our love of quilting. There have been a group in Oregon for the last week for a retreat. We sewed, laughed and just had fun. Ladies (and a few hubbies) from Oregon, Wasington state, Idaho, Minnesota, Tennessee, Virginia, Maine, Nevada and one Canadian. I think I covered everyone. Sorry if I missed a state. Just take your time and enjoy yourself.

Hi Edith, welcome
You will do just fine here. There is lots of help and encouragement for the quilt making part and the computer part.
Quiltless, I found your very informative message to Edith in my emails, but can't locate it to reply to it. You gave such a very informative -( what I would call) editorial on our passion of quilting. I don't know where you found your information, but certainly enjoyed it myself. Thanks a lot. Ginny
Welcome Edith :)
Hi and welcome Edith, glad you decided to join us and looking forward to getting to know you. Enjoy!
