I live in the Metro Atlanta area in the state of Georgia, USA. I am old enough to be a grandmother but our son is not even married yet, but we are hopeful. I've recently retired after 30 yrs of working as an Orientation and Mobility Instructor with one of the area school systems. I've been quilting for about 20 years. I do most of my sewing on treadle sewing machines. I am a member of the on-line TreadleOn group that promotes the use of people powered sewing machines. There are also a great number of vintage sewing machines living at this house. I am a member of several quilt guilds and a lace group. We have cats. My husband is still working. He enjoys hunting and playing with his tractor. The major activity that we do together is junk looking at yard & estate sales, antique shows etc.
