Hi there ... I'm new to the club.  I've been quilting since 2007.  Originally, my mother and I were going to take classes when she retired.  Unfortunately she passed away before we could realize that dream together.  Instead I joined a bee and started quilting on my own.  I fell in love with it and it's been a love affair ever since.  One year into the quilting adventure, my bee members decided to take a 3-day Judy Neimeyer  workshop and convinced me to join them.  It was quite the challenge for a beginning quilter, but I was able to rise to the challenge and it really helped me realize that I can achieve whatever I put my mind to.

I'm 45 years old and live in southeast Texas.  This week I celebrate my 25th wedding anniversary.  I have one child (a daughter) who is a college senior.  I work part-time and care for my niece on my "day's off."   Quilting has to be fit in to my schedule, but I make sure it happens!!!

Welcome to QCA.  We love meeting new people and hearing all about their quilting, families, and anything else you feeling like talking about.  I hope you enjoy the site and drop in to chat with us frequently.

I am sorry to hear that you and your Mom didn't have the chance to realize your quilting dream.  But I am very glad that you continued on.  Quilting is so addictive and quickly becomes a passion in your life.  We would love to see pictures of your quilts.

Congratulations on your wedding anniversary.  25 years...WTG.

Welcome Sharene.  You will really like this group.   Even though I have been quilting a while, I have learned so much the past couple years from the members here.

Sharene--

So nice to "meet" you.  I'm sure you'll find this site to be lots of fun.  Everyone here is so very helpful and willing to share knowledge about quilting and almost any other topic you could imagine.  The various threads can sometimes take quite a "birdwalk" from the original post, but it's all good.

Sharene - it is a pleasure to meet you and welcome you to QCA.  I live north of you in Oklahoma... we do have a few members down in TX... isn't quilting fun - and addictive - pretty soon you will be joining my Quiltoholics group - don't worry it is all for the best!

Again glad to have you hear and look forward to getting to know you better!
