Noemi Sanchez Posted: Tue, Mar 16 2010 7:07 PM

Hi there, 

My name is Noemi Sanchez and I am new to the club.  Actually, I am new to quilting.  I am working on my first quilt which is a charity quilt for Downy.  I am registered to take a beginner's quilting class, starting in a couple of weeks.  I am really looking forward to learning how to do this correctly.  I am having alot of fun and have learned alot by looking at videos on you tube.  I can defenitely see how this can easily become an addiction. 

Just to tell you a little about myself, I have been married to my wonderful husband Nestor for 23 years and have two children, Steven who is 20 and Stephanie who is 19.  A few months ago, I took the plunge and bought myself a treat, my Husqvarna Viking Topaz 30 Embroidery Machine.  I live in South Florida and have joined a local quilters club.  I have only been to a few meetings and have learned a great deal.  I work full time for a hospice and I think that I enjoy quilting/sewing because it totally takes my mind away of the everyday challenges that life throws our way.  Also, I find that it allows you to exhibit your creativity. 

I am looking forward to being part of this group and hope to learn from all of your experiences.  Thanks!

Noemi

Hi Noemi and welcome to the club!  Glad to have you here.  You have come to the right spot for the quilting addiction.  Great group of enablers (I mean that in a good way!) lol

That is admirable work that you do working in a hospice.

Enjoy your new machine and quilting class!

Nice to meet you, Noemi!  As a beginner, it sounds like you are doing all the right things - a class, some videos, a local club, and now our group.  You will have so much help if you need any advice!  Thank you for the good work you do in hospice care.  I lost my father to cancer, and the hospice worker was a tremendous help to us.

Happy quilting with your new machine!

Welcome to QCA. As the others have already said, you did the right thing by joining. As another newbie and fellow quilt addict, this is the place to be.   I am also working on a Downy quilt. Mine arrived yesterday and I already have the top completed.

Welcome, Noemi!

So glad you've jumped into quilting with both feet! You certainly are doing all the right things to learn, meet other quilters, and have a great support network.  QCA is like a virtual guild in some ways - we help each other, share our quilts, lend support when needed, and have lots of fun and laughs together. Thanks so much for introducing yourself. I hope you like it here as much as we do :-)

Noemi,

Welcome to the group.  You will have a lot of fun here.  Good luck with your Downy quilt.  Sounds like you are doing all the right things and taking classes, going to a guild.  Don't forget to add QA to that list (quilters anonymous in case you didn't realise). The quilting art is addictive.

Welcome! I, too, am a beginner (at quilting, not sewing-but they are two different animals sometimes) and am also going to hone my skills on a few downy quilts.

Welcome Noemi

What a great way to start with classes and a Downy quilt.  My little quilt guild ordered 10 Downy kits last night.  We will soon be done with our raffle quilt and were looking for another project.  With our small group it will probably work out to about 2 quilts each.  We plan to set a Saturday or Sunday afternoon aside to get together and all work on them at the same time.  Our group has various levels of experience, from no completed quilts to one or two members who have done hundreds.  We are small because we all live in a small valley half an hour from town and avoid driving to town more that we have to.

You will have lots of great helpful quilting friends on this site.
