Happy birthday, Lynn~I hope you have a wonderful day!
I'm Bridget and I live in Seaside, Oregon. It's a small town without a guild, quilting groups or classes, so I joined this site in hopes of meeting other quilters. It was hard meeting people at first, but then I joined some of the groups and that made it much easier; everyone has been so friendly and helpful!
I started quilting 6 years ago after taking an early retirement. I had never learned how to sew, and it was just a fluke that I decided to make a quilt, but it turned out really well and I was hooked! After making a quilt for each family member I wanted to keep making them, so now I mainly quilt for charity and to sell.
Anyway, I just wanted to say hello and happy birthday!
Lynn... thanks for the response about the "new" Expo Center... I'll have to check it out!! I'm excited that a quilt show will be THAT close to home for me! I work full-time and have a hard time making it to them when they are a great distance. Thank you for the info! ~ Kathryn
The Expo in Colorado Springs has been purchased by a local church and is now their home. Are you sure of the location for the June quilt show? Just curious... I'd love to attend if I know where it is. We do have a large park in town called "America the Beautiful" -- I wonder if it will be held there instead?
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
If you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website too. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook. Actually my Trail of Thread ebooks are on special, so now’s a good time to “Follow the trail to Kansas” with my quilting women.
Or if you’d like the paperback version I just posed a special on my Linda Hubalek website (until Aug. 21st) that you can get 20% off your book order by using the code QUILT in the shopping cart.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
