Hi, I'm Carol and I live in Wanganui, New Zealand  I have been quilting for nearly thirty years and love traditional quilts.  I like hand quilting but am trying to become more proficient at machine quilting.  I also like to do redwork and belong to the local embroiderers' guild as well as our local patchwork group.  We have 2 shops in town that sell patchwork fabric and both are currently expanding their fabrics.  Lucky us.  I am also a bagaholic - love to make bags.

Greetings Carol!

 I'm new to the site as well and was very excited to see your post.  How far away are you from the earthquake that hit near Christchurch in Feb earlier this year?  My husband were in western Australia (Bunburry) at that time and our hearts went out to the people that were living through that horrible event.  I hope you and your loved ones suffered no ill from that.

Do you have favorite patterns that you use for making your bags, or do you design your own?  Would love to see pics if you have any.

Hope your day is full of warm sunshine!

Melody

We have had a couple of quilters from down under, but I can't say who or what happened to them.  They may still be lurking on the site.  Now is a good time for them to refresh my memory as to who they are.  You are going to have fun on this site.  lots of threads to follow and lots of tips to teach and learn.

Welcome from the other side of the world Carol.  Nice to have a New Zealander.  I know we have a few Aussies out here.  Please post some pictures of your quilts.  We are a very nosy bunch that loves to drool over quilts.
