Hello - I am retired and getting started in several crafts (scrapbooking (manual and digital), card making, love the computer and have enjoyed checking out the various sites - especially Quilters Club of America, Fons and Porter, etc. I look forward to being part of the forum and learning from all the various quilters.
As for my introduction - my personal story is I have two wonderful grown boys with 1 extra wonderful grandson who is only 3 months old. Husband is deceased and therefore, I need a lot to keep me busy. My working career was with our public school system as clerical Adm. Asst. to the Superintendent, SIMS Coordinator, Finance, & Media and Technology. You see I have a varied working career. I have been getting my feet on the ground for about 3 years and now I am ready to start being productive. Happy to be here!

Welcome and hope you enjoy. This is a wonderful site with lots of helpful members. Also lots of "nuts" here but I think you will get used to us...LOL.
I am newly retired after a long career in public schools, too. Quilting, gardening, and cooking are the hobbies I am pursuing. Welcome to the club. Hope we'll see lots of you.

Welcome Patsy. I hope you enjoy your time with us. It's a fun - rather wacky group
Patsy welcome to QCA. As a fairly new member myself, I found that this group is very warm and caring even if we all live in our own part of the world, be it US, Canada, Australia, Italy, England and I miss many. I love to read how each member proceeds, create a quilt so different from the same pattern like in the Mystery Quilt. The creativity just flows right through. Hope you are able to find what you are looking for in this quilters community.
