Hello, Blogger

Adding a blog to the list of things I try to fit in to any given day, or week, seems at odds with my intention of spending more quality time with the things I truly enjoy. I am not a writer, nor do I have anything deep or even interesting to share. What I do have is a need to find crafty bloggers, especially ones who are talented and like to share. For the Interwebs are large, and my time here is short.
I am a quilter. There, I said it. I recently went to a quilt show and stopped by the local quilting guild's table. The woman minding the booth asked me if I was a quilter. Why couldn't I just say yes? I do quilt, and my work isn't bad. But I learned it from books, so I have lots and lots of questions. And in my mind, if I don't understand something in its entirety, I don't understand it at all. One of my few weaknesses, really.
So I find myself here in the blog world. Looking for answers, looking for some sense of community. It's not all about quilting, but it's a good place to start. So take it away, Blogger, your world is my oyster.


  1. Wowzers, girl! You are too a writer! Great first post!

    We MUST, I repeat, MUST, go to Waynesville this year. The fabric store down there is out of this world. I bet Wendy would meet up with us. I'd love for you to meet her.

    Are you going to check out the guild?

  2. I've tried so many times to reply, here goes again...
    Would love to go fabric shopping! Meeting Wendy would be sweet as well.
    I'm joining the guild as soon as I can make a meeting- maybe next month.
    Thanks for commenting!

  3. I agree with Amber - awesome opening post! I just saw that Joann Fabrics has classes so I think I am going to take Sewing 101 to start using my machine. They also have quilting classes that I plan on taking in the future. Maybe that can help with your questions - or maybe BOCES. Their classes are really good too.

  4. Joann's! Great idea.
    Katie, I'll send you the info on my really good beginners quilting book. It teaches about fabric, supplies, sewing (hand and machine) and all the basic techniques for quilting. It has a few little projects as well.
