Hello! from the Midwest!!!
I am from Northeast Missouri, and right in the middle of a typical Summer thunder storm.....don't ask, the weather in this state has always been crazy and it never seems to know what the weather should be!!
I am new to quilting (the new tricks in my subject line), but an oldie to crafts: sewing, crochetting, loom knitting, jewelery making, hand embroidery, plastic canvas. card making, cake decorating, and any thing else that may catch my fancy. I also taught all kinds of crafts to kids in Bible School and in 4-H.
I LOVE TO CRAFT!!! IT KEEPS ME FROM GOING INSANE!...and it keeps me from bittting my nails.
I have a sewing machine and a surger. I would love a knitting machine, an electric embroidery machine and an electronic quilting machine with a 14-foot or 16-foot bed. I'm not sure where they would go though, I live in a 2-bedroom, 900-sq.foot apartment with my daughter and a whole lot of stuff...mostly books, magazines and crafting stuff, besides my daughter's stuff.
Would love to here from folks and would love any assistance and encouragement with the quilting...as I said, I'm an old Dog(63) learning so new tricks.....

Mary, as I am the same age, I don't consider you an old dog...I took up quilting when I retired and I'm hooked, hook, line and sinker. I own 6 sewing machines, including a small embroidery machine and a mid-arm on a 10 ft. frame. My home is not much bigger, and I share it with a husband and two large dogs. Somehow, we all manage to find room for our hobby.
Hi Mary, welcome
You will fit right in with all the other multi-taskers here. And they are great teachers, too.
