Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I live in Illinois in the summer months and winter in Florida. I belong to a very active 'giving' guild and must confess I do not care to quilt but I do enjoy piecing the tops. I have been sewing over 40 years and hope to get good some day! Most of my personal sewing is quilt art.

Hi Elaine! I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon. I joined this site at the end of April because I'm in a small town without any guilds, quilting groups or classes and I was tired of being a lone quilter. So I came here in hopes of meeting others. I joined several of the groups and everyone is so friendly and helpful!
I too quilt for charity. The ones I donate the most to are Quilts for Kids and the Alzheimer's Art Quilt Initiative (raising money for alzheimer's research). I only quilt for legitimate (501c) organizations because I was burned in the past...sending many, many quilts to a woman who ended up selling them on e-bay. I learned my lesson the hard way! But there are a lot of good organizations out there. Many here quilt for Quilts of Valor and Project Linus is popular too. One woman I know quilts for the Ronald McDonald House, but there isn't a chapter in my area. I made quilts for all of my family members and wanted to keep quilting, and that's what started me on making quilts to donate.
Well, I just wanted to say hello and welcome! I hope you'll enjoy it here as much as I do!
