Welcome to the club.  Hope you have a great time with us.  Since you are wanting to learn machine quilting you should check out the FMQ group.   We have several people learning to improve their quilting skills.  You will find lots of tips, techniques, and encouragement.   Go to the groups section and check it out.

Welcome Vicki.  Please join in all of the fun we have here.  There is a new mystery quilt starting up soon that will give you another "big" quilt.  I think you should be able to go to the groups section and check out some of the quilts that were turned out with the other mysery quilts that have been done.  There is always something going on out here.

Hello Vicky, welcome.  When you read the posts it seem to me like all of these ladies (and one or two gentlemen) all live down the street from each other.  As far as i know, i am the only one from Canada so it's quite a block.  Join the FMQ group and you will definatly pick up as many tips as you will undoubtedly give back.

hi vivian,  we have quite a few quilters from canada here.  there is also a pretty big contingent from the west coast of the states.  and a couple from over the pond, a couple from austrailia.    i think it's just that the members from the east coast are just a bunch of talkers and seldom let the rest of us get a word in edgewise  :  )    gini
