Hi deb, welcome to the group

Hi Deb. I too was a stay home mom. My 3 are grown and on their own, now my hubby and I own a small tool store. He is a retired deputy. I am also a hand quilter! I live in the mountains of southern California.
Welcome from another newly to this forum! We love to visit Georgia. It is a beautiful state.
We're almost neighbors, I live in FL , the big bend. Our four kids are all grown up and we have 6 grandchildren between 18 years old and the youngest is four.
I'm in the process of learning to hand quilt. I have found a very kind lady willing to show me the right way. My lessons will start next month when school is out for the summer. I can't take regular classes due to my allergies to manmade chemicals, that includes all fragrances.
Welcome! Where in GA do you live. I live in Ellijay in the north GA mountains. We do live in a beautiful state.
Welcome welcome. You are going to love this site. Its great.
Sukochi I used to live in Kennesaw, Ga. I loved Ellijay. Very pretty there. I love mountains guess that's why I moved to Utah.

Georgetown CA I'd Rather Be Quilting
Welcome to QCA! I'm a working mom blessed with two daughters who are 19 and 23, both currently home for the summer. I live about 15 miles from the Florida Georgia border. What part of Georgia do you live in?
Robin, I live on the eastern side of Ga. I believe we have about 3 and half hrs to Jacksonville Flordia,and about an hr. from Augusta,Ga.
That's such a beautiful area.
I received a heart warming email about a special needs children and I would love to share that one with you if you care to share your email address with me?
I envy you your ability to just quilt. I have done some, but I just don't get the hang of using a quilt hoop. My soon to be teacher's first name is also Marianne and she also loves dogs. It will be great fun.
