I am also new to this site and still slow in finding my way around it. I can't send a lot of PM because my phone won't send them and I do not have a computer. I have joined the pillowcase swap and secret Santa and am very excited about that! I'm reading everyone's discussions and am thrilled to be a part of this group. 

I've only been sewing a few years and still feel like a beginner but I so enjoy it. I really like getting together with gals from church and have a sew day. I've been single way too many years, moved from NC for family but even after 5 years I miss NC as its slow making new sewing friends. 

I went to my first Babylock retreat in May in St Louis, Eleanor Burns was there too. It was fun, fast and exhausting since I couldn't sleep for days. Ha I love retreats, the next one I'm going to is in October in Jefferson City at a lovely hotel with a pool! It's from the Missouri State Quilters Guild. I hope I sleep this time. 

I have 2 sweet indoor cats, I now work part time as a cashier. My past life consisted of being a legal secretary, insurance, and the medical field - all stressful. That's over. I love to read, cook, water aerobics and SEW. 

My best to all, Carol R

Hi Carol and welcome!  Nice to have you join this site, you will have a great time here with a great bunch of people.  I hesitate to say girls because I know we have a few guys who belong but haven't heard from them in awhile.

Welcome Carol. I too am from MO. I live in the Jefferson City Area. I do spend time in Branson when I want to get away as we have a family house there for my parents and sisters and their families to use for quick get a ways instead of "real" vacations.   Not sure where you hail from in MO. But it would be nice to meet you.

Gini, I did not know you spend time in Branson.   Have a house there to summer in. Let me know and we can get together if our schedules matched up.

Carol

Welcome to the group.  I hope you enjoy your time with us.   It would be awesome if you could join one of our retreats.   We have so much fun and it feels like visiting with old friends and family.    Check out the QCA Retreats thread for all the retreats we are having or have had over the past year.   I know there will be more in the future.

It would be great to plan a sewing visit with you! I usually work Monday, Tuesday and Thursday ( of course I'm working this weekend) but being part time they are very accommodating to my requests off. Branson is about 2 hours or so from me. Maybe the next time your there let me know. Question: what does DD mean? I'm not up on all these abbreviations. :)
