I returned to sewing after not sewing for 30 years. I enjoy slipcovering furniture and making curtains. I've never quilted because I felt like it would take too long to complete a project. But I have been lurking at QuiltingBoard.com and learned that I can start with small projects to learn the basic skills. It was at that website that I learned about QCOA. I'm retired now and look forward to this magazine and to having access to all the benefits offered by this membership. I hope to get "acquainted" with the members of this group.
