I've been a member for some time now but have resisted joining the forum. I signed up for the Dear Jane group and had almost 300 immediate responses. I was surprised that my computer didn't crash. So be kind and ease me in.

Craftyj001, welcome :-)
You can always click on "stop emailing me replies" at the top of any thread if you're feeling bombarded. We are a welcoming, friendly bunch! Think of us as a slightly oversized virtual guild!
I hope you're enjoying QCA and all it has to offer. Thanks for saying hello :-)
Cathy - welcome to the forum - this is my one and only forum that I participate in...
And yes, I have my account set up for no emails at all... too too many...
Welcome to QCA and I am glad you are joining us - the more the merrier! We have as Eileen said a wonderful virtual Quilt Guild here... lots and lots of fun!
welcome from another North Carolian I am in Garner and have just retired on 3/31 and am also still learning about this forum. I have already read some great tips and am enjoying talking with everyone.
Hi crafty...this is the only chat (other than Facebook & MSN) that I am on...this is such a great site...the ladies are lovely and there is lots of advise and encouragement...lol..sometimes too much and we tend to get enabled here...haha...I to have turned off the notification as there are just too many people chatting on them to possible keep them all emailed to you...we are starting the BOM on May 15th...why not join in..you can do it at your own pace...it is fun
QCA is the greatest group of quilters you'll find anywhere. I have grown so much as a quilter since finding these wonderfully supportive friends and I'm sure you will love being a part of the fun, sharing and caring that goes on here. Welcome.
hi crafty and welcome. it is pretty overwhelming to get so many replies. you can go into your profile and shut off all the e-mails.
this is a fun group and i hope you enjoy it here. i'm also making the dear jane quilt, so i'll see you over in the DJ group gini
gini in north idaho
This is craftyj001 saying thanks to all for all the encouragement. Now all I need to do is pay attention and join in. A virtual guild - what a great idea.
welcome to the forums. How's the weather down there? (I'm in Maine).
Welcome to the forums. Hope you drop in to chat with us frequently. We love to see pics of projects. I see you are from Raliegh...such a beautiful area. One of my SIL is from Apex.
Welcome to the QCA forums, Crafty!
