Hello! I'm new to quilting, not-so-new to sewing, and very very new to this group of quilters! :-) I live in Woodburn, Oregon - not too far from Portland for those that don't know the area - with my husband and four nerdlings. :-) I belong to the Woodburn Quilt Society and loooove going to our meetings, including a Sit 'N Sew every four weeks. Can't think of much else to say, lol. New to all of it and eager to meet other quilters! :-)

Welcome Meliissa.   I never been to Oregon. .   My favorite German Shepherd breeder lives in  Bend, Oregon..  My pups   flew from Portland to Atlanta.  I live  with my DH in Florida, the big bend.  Are the four herdlings your two legged kids?  We have four of those  and 6 grandkids.

I'm not new to sewing but I'm new to qilting.  I started to quilt early last year, after watching a youtube. My DH is retired and he started to sew last year.  He's very good at it.

Hi, Marianne! I've been to Florida as a child but never as an adult! Something tells me you have more sun than rainy ol' Oregon. :-) And yes, my four nerdlings are kiddos! :-) Olivia, Duncan, Rachael, and Charlotte. And fun! My Dad says grandkids are even more fun than kids because you get to hand them back to their parents! ;-)

That's fun that your husband sews as well! Mine is into woodworking, no sewing needed there so far, lol. I started quilting last year and I'm really enjoying it! 

Thanks for your reply!

Melissa
