Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I have been making quilts about a year now. I took a class and made myself a Christmas tablecloth. I have made several more but gave them away. I love all kinds of crafts and sewing. I like to buy my material where ever I can get it cheap. Hancock's and Quilting Quest in Lexington are my favorite stores to shop in. I went to my first quilt show a couple weeks ago and saw and used my first long arm quilter and I am in love! I want one. On my quest to find a long arm, I am finding it difficult to locate a dealer in NC. Why is that? I have a friend I Skype once a week and we have "sew dates".

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 a quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread historical fiction book series, written in the form of letters sent back home, describes my ancestors’ wagon trail journey and homesteading in Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
And my new books in the Kansas Quilterseries will be out by early 2014. It’s about my great grandmother Kizzie Pieratt and the many quilts she made.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
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?
Good morning Tammy. There are quilters from NC. If you go to the top of the page and click on quilters, a members list appears. You can search by state and maybe find someone close to you. I have found a few ladies close to me. They might know of quilt shops and guilds in your area. Hope you find something you can become a part of, I did when we moved to Oregon.
