Hi, my name is Barb and as my "handle" says, I am new to quilting.  I hope I'm not over my head in this forum.

I live in St. Louis, Mo and am retired.  I have a DH and 2 wonderful dogs and one African Grey parrot.  I used to live in Evansville, IN and loved it.  Hated to return to St. Louis but I have 3 kids, 8 grandkids and 4 Great grandsons, (one set of twins).

I look forward to all I can learn in this foruml

Welcome Barb.  No one is over their head here.  we all start somewhere and some of us are still at the gate.

I love African Grey parrots.   My in-laws had one.  After my mother-in-law passed away, it went to a new home.  My FIL traveled a lot and it would not have been fair to Shadow.

There are lots of newbies on this site besides we love to share our knowledge so ask any questions you may have and someone will give or find an answer for you. there are lots of quilt groups you may want to join. Look around and see what its all about.  I have only been quilting 3 years myself and still consider myself a newbie. So much to learn and it never stops. Also we have another Barbara that lives in Missouri and she is also from Indiana. Im sure you will meet her. She is one of our favorites, here. Glad you are here and look forward to chatting with you.                        Susan, North, Florida

Hi Barb,

I also am a 'newbie' to this forum and also to quilting.  I haven't really figured it out yet, other than to respond to posts like this, so can't offer much help at this point.  But everyone seems very nice and willing to help, so I am sure you will do fine.

Welcome!
