Hi Irene! I've been here for a couple of weeks now and think I finally figured out the website. There are a lot of groups to participate in...machine quilting is one I belong to. I think I belong to 8 altogether. Anyway, I've been quilting for five years and mainly make them to donate or sell. I don't belong to a guild, but would sure love to. I live in a small town and the nearest guild is over an hour away at a time that doesn't work for me. I'd love to be around other quilters, which is why I joined this site. I enjoyed being a lone quilter for the first 4 years, but now I wish I had some quilting friends. I don't know anyone who quilts. Even the quilt shop owner doesn't quilt! She inherited the shop from her mom and keeps it because she just loves fabric. Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and welcome!
