Welcome to the newbies, though I suspect it is I who is the newbie as some are from a former group?

actually we are all from former groups ... some from a place called IFQ .. and also another called Applique and Quilting ... and others are from Ebay chat forums ... but ... those places are either closed or changed ..

now we are all here ... and after a couple of posts and maybe a swap or 2 .. no one is new ...

HI everyone I am new here and my name is Dee. I have been quilting for over 25 years and enjoy the process of making my fabric's dance into quilts or other small projects. I started sewing as a preteen ,and watching my mom and my paternal grandmother sewing with her sister's.

Married for 38 years with 3 grown son's and the oldest who is living in England now with his family after living in Italy for 3 years, my middle son and his wife live near us and youngest is with us at home. We have two granddaughters 8 and 3 who are the delight of our lives. They visited for the month of August with their parents ,and we had a grand time especially visiting and going all over with the family. Disneyland was their favorite place to visit.

I enjoy crewel work and now that our house is all quiet again, I will get back to my crafting. I hope to make new friends and enjoying seeing my ole freinds here again !! ciao Dee:D

Hi everyone, I have just joined this group and am looking forward to giving and receiving help with quilting problems and also I hope to participate in swaps.

My name is Sue and I live in Perth Australia. My husband and I have 2 sons at university. I was bitten by the quilting bug about 12 years ago. I don't have a particular style or colour preference except I like to try any and every technique and I like to do difficult patterns. I always have 1 machine project and 1 hand project on the go (as well as numerous projects in the planning stages). But I try to be quite disciplined and don't start any new projects until the current one is finished....consequently, I have no ufo's in my cupboard which makes me a little unusual amongst my quilting group.

At the moment, I am completing a Sunbonnet Sue made from 1930's fabrics and a quilt-as-you-go hexagon tablecloth from Christmas fabrics.

hi Sue ... would love to see your sunbonnet sues ... i want to make one one day ... but for now will just have to drool over other peoples quilts ...

sweetie as for no ufo's ... hopefully we will be able to cure you of that terrible tragedy ..... how horrid for you ... you seriously don't know what you are missing ... i have dozens in boxes here ... i love them all ... and they just keep me motivated .... every now and then i pull them out ... unfold them ... fondle them .. and maybe do a little stitch here or there ... find a fabric that really works well with one or two ... ... leave them laying all over my sewing room for about a week .. and then fold them all up ... and pack them away for another day ....

they keep me going ... haha ...

hope you enjoy your time here ... the girls are all lovely .... and we only have a couple of swaps going at the moment .. but have some fantastic ones in the works ...

and if you have any questions ... please ask away .... there is a chat section where anything and everything can be discussed ... and also .. if you have tips and tricks .. we would all love to hear them too ...

never can stop learning in this game ...

welcome and have fun ...

I think 'UFO' is simply horrid. I think WIPs is far more to my liking.......



You will be surprised how many hexagons you have to make ha ha ha ha

and make ......... and make .......... and make. Especially if you want every centre to be a different colour/pattern etc. AND you need to really think about the backing fabic- takes ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh so much of it. They eat backing fabric.

I have 6 tubs on the go. Some WIPs - some collecting the next 'things' etc but I try not to start something new till I get an empty tub. And I try and keep all the threads etc for each one in the tub so I can pick up later. Then when I finish a tub I put everything back where it belongs........... lol

Welcome Sue. I salute you! You are And ......... I am not as good as you that is for sure! I even have quilts that are quilted already just waiting to be trimmed and bound! Rolling Eyes I will be the first to say - I am hopeless! Others here will agree with me! ha ha

I also have a boxes with finished blocks ready to whip into a few quilts and other boxes with whole projects just waiting for me to start cutting and sewing! Not to mention all the others I have in the planning stages! One day everyone will have a quilt - hopefully if it is one of mine it will be a finished one!

I'm Michele, Has taken a while to post an intro as I'm very busy. Married 28 years no kids. Love crafting and have my own room. Lots of patterns kits and fabric as well as heaps of scrapbook and cardmaking goodies.

I'm currently finishing off My Girls Day Out stitcheries only 1 panel left and then have to put this one together - it's been a long haul. 6 years or so, will be glad to spend time putting it together (I think) not sure how to do it but will give it a try.

I'm in th Yarra Valley, Victoria out near the Dandenongs and there is never enough hours in the day or days in the week to get MY fun hobbies done around the usual housework. Oops forgot to let you know I'm retired and no that doesn't mean you have extra hours for craft it means you have a partner who is also retired wanting you to do something.

Anyways looking forward to meeting everyone and having lots of fun.

Michele

Hello: I am Jen. I live in Allentown, Pennsylvania, USA. Yes, after the Billy Joel song and next to Bethlehem and Bethlehem Steel. I have two children, a daughter 33 and 3 grandchildren and a son 27 (0 grandchildren from him) that is a cop in one of the worst city in the state. I have been sewing since I could stand at the sewing machine, 50 years ago. I teach all facets of sewing in one of the local fabric shops. I do some kind of sewing everyday. If I don’t, I feel like I am going thru withdrawal. I do all kinds of crafting, knitting, counted cross stitch, embroidery (but not good), jewelry making. Sewing is my passion. One day I will win a blue ribbon for one of my quilts. Oh, and I work full time for the Dept. of Defense.

I have met some terrific ladies here and I hope you will too. Welcome to the club.

Hi Michele ... welcome aboard .. the girls here are a great bunch ...

i went to a 'girls day out' this year in toowoomba ... it was fantastic ... i still have not done the stitchery from it ... well no actually i have done a bit of it .. but you could say i have done nothing it is sooooooo minute .... hahaha . ..... i am the queen of everything unfinished ....

the dandenong's is not a place i would like to live .... i don't mind the cold but i do think it gets a wee bit cold there even for me ... haha .... but a very pretty area non the less ....

we are currently (not) traveling around australia in our bus .... not cos it is still in being repaired ... but very shortly we will be ... only a matter of days not we hope ... maybe a week ... but it is that close i can taste the salt air ..... when we leave here .. our youngest son's place near tara in south western queensland we are heading north to townsville to visit with another son and his family ... we just have to get our bus back .... will be more on that when it happens ....

we have 6 kids and 24 grandkids ... have been married for almost 32 years and are still happy with each others company ... he doesn't mind me sewing all day and i don't mind that he sits in front of the TV playing his playstation ... as long as the dishes are done he can do anything he wants .....

well that is about all i can think of that is interesting about me ... i can be a bit of a dull dora at times ......

lovely to have you here with us ... please come join in the fun of the swaps .... we don't take too much too seriously here ... but we do love to play with fabrics ....

Welcome Michele,

I live inner city Melbourne. I like to play with lots of crafts, lots of failures and not a lot of success but doesn't stop me trying. Othesr save fabric stashes but I am more interested in a thread stash. I might add I do have a metre or 2 of fabric.

I too am retired with no time to go to work even if anyone would employ me.
