Posted on January 16, 2013 at 4:30pm 2 Comments

Are you a digitabulist?

Thank you for the welcome. I think I am really going to enjoy this site. At 73 years old I am really a novice at this computer thing. I don't Facebook or Twitter. Am not experienced with t electronic media. I did find at American Quilter the book I was looking for, Clever Banners, Panels, and Postcards, and ordered it at a considerable savings over the price offered on E-Bay....$14.83 versus $5.00. Thanks again, Barbara
