Hi Briony,

Saw your quest for British Quilt Shows,  there is one called The Great Northern Quilt Show 31 Aug - 2nd Sept., Harrowgate.    If you have ever been to York, etc., then Harrogate is a MUST.  Very warm folk from Yorkshire. 

The BIGGEST IN EUROPE IS Birmingham  at the NEC 16-19th Aug.,2012.  For more info, just google the above

London has a Knitting & Stitching Show at Alexandra Palace, London 11th-14th Oct.,

followed by Dublin  (not Britain I know, but handy from Scotland) at the RDS.,  on 1st-4th Nov., which is where I got bitten by the quilting bug last year.  

There are more, but those are the current ones now until the NewYear.

Briony, no British shows that I know of.  I have a tough time getting to quilt shows, as I have 3 boys, 13, 7, and 2.  But this year I am going to the Sewing and Quilting Expo in Raleigh.  My DH actually got me a hotel room & I won tickets on Facebook yesterday.  I am so excited!  You can never stop learning and improving your quilting.  I have been quilting since the 1990's, and I'm so hoping to take a machine quilting class.  I really want to get better at that.  How was the quilt show you attended?  Did you take any photos?  Great to meet you.  Have a super day!

Hi Briony, The course is something of a mystery quilt. Each set of blocks, there are to be 20, is to b posted on the first of each month. The course information and the blocks are accessible through a link located in the lower left of the screen. I have downloaded those for January, but I've not started sewing them yet as I'm away from home until next Sunday. If you have trouble downloading, let me know and perhaps I can email them to you.

Yes, I have to say that Perry is special and needs to go back to Texas where he comes from. (Perry is the one that forgot his policies during the debt) Some times I wish we could just really vote for Mickey Mouse or Donald Duck.

Have a great week.

It is interesting to hear your point of view. Being in the USA our president changes every 4 to 8 years and our congress is always changing some seats. I think that congress is useless right now, and has been for about 2 years, the republicans just wont work with the president on anything, I really think it is going to end up biting them all in the butt here soon.  

On a fun note,

Other family birthdays are March 1st, April 11th, May 25th, November 12th, 14th, 25th and December 15th. Anniversary is March 22nd.

Talk to you soon,

Briony, it is all over our news here, so I have to ask, how do you feel about Scotland wanting to leave Great Brittan? It would be interesting to hear what you think, pros and cons.

We are in for a cold snap this weekend, may be down to 0 over the weekend, I know that I live in Alaska, but man, I'm just not ready for another cold snap like that. I think I'm just getting to old for it.

Talk to you soon,

Hi Briony,

You can order my book through Amazon UK. Click on this link to see my books and ebooks you can order.

Start on your book idea, and then tweak it until you're ready to send it to a publisher or print it yourself. It can be a fun and rewarding project!

Have a great day!

I live in Southeast Alaska, it is a rain forest and British Columbia in on the other side of the ice field that separates our two countries.(Canada and the USA). I get more rain each year than snow and it is very green here year round. 

When I learned how to Scottish Dance, I lived in Seattle Washington and was in Junior High School.

My store is slow today and so to pass the time I'm working on a Christmas sock for my husband. It has Marvin the Martian on it. I will post a picture when I get it finished. I'm still doing some outline embroidery on it. I should have it all finished by tomorrow.

That is neat. I will tell him and I'm sure he will get a kick out if. He is finding it interesting that I am talking to women around the world that share my love quilting.

Briony, Did I read right, is your birthday Nov 12? My husband's birthday is the same day.

Briony, I think the food was shortbread.

As for the my group, I think anyone that lives in a country that shares the cold waters of the arctic, I think that would count you in.

Back in the 70's I even took up Scottish folk dancing, I loved it and was pretty good at it too. It was great exercise.

Talk to you soon, Kathy

Briony, Thank you for befriending me. I am excited about this sight. I'm sure that we will learn from each other. I am also excited about learning about the cultures of my new friends. I live in a rain forest, this is what it looks like when I walk out of my front door at home. What does it look like from yours? I have to say, I have seen some pictures of Scotland, I had hug school girl crushes on two of the Bay City Rollers way back when in the 70's and because of that I really got into tartans and kilts, and I love Scotch bread cookies. YUM.

Hi Briony. Great to hear frm a fellow UK lass. I love Scotland- worked on Isle of Colonsay a year ago for 12months as nurse. Trained in RIE (Edinburgh). Now in Lake District. Love all varieties of fabric & quilting- Like to browse at Milngavie. Have you seen Kalquilts new web site? Where do you get your fabric from? We've got a lovely lady near Carlisle who's based in a farm barn- Spend too much in there!! Regards Ann

Sounds very wise smarting with a small project.  Finishing a project is so rewarding and encouraging! :)

I had to look up the news about Paul McCartney.  Glad he's doing well and life is carrying on for him.


Have a great night! :) Cammy

Hi Briony, I'm not sure what generation, but my family does have ties to Ireland, Scotland, Italy and my grandmother came from France. :)  My husband's family is from Germany but i"m not sure how many generations back they go.  I look forward to sharing quilty projects and would love to hear more about Scotland. :)

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.

My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.

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?

Happy quilting and reading!

Linda Hubalek

You are in the right place as there are beginners all the way to expert on this site and they are all very nice and patient with questions I have asked.  I think you will enjoy quilting and there is a lot of applique people to ask question to.

Welcome Quilters! is brought to you entirely free as a service of the American Quilter's Society. We hope you enjoy meeting one another and sharing your experience and expertise. Enjoy!
