Has everyone noticed how many new members have joined since early December?
It seems like we have a few being added every day!
How cool is that???

The past 6 months have seen many new members. I think we had quite a few join after the blog told the story of the forum ornaments. I think a lot of people don't realize that there is a forum or how awesome it is. The new members need to check out the groups and see if any thing interests them. Great causes, great groups.

I'm relatively new, I didn't find it from a blog, I found it from searching 'quilting forum' ... Which I was searching for because the Cloth Diaper Forum I was super active in for about 5 years is no longer relevant to my life. Also, a local Mommies forum I was a part of for a long time has dwindled down to non-existence. So, I was looking for a new place to chat that is not Facebook!!

I'm pretty happy here so far, though I confess that I sew lots of things that aren't quilts, and I wish there were a section of the forum for the other types of sewists too!

So lovely to see! A big Canadian WELCOME to all the new folks here. RockinLou, you can post stuff on other sewing in the General Topics.....we love everything! Quilts just happen to be our passion.

I am also one of the new members here.
I am very new to quilting after having joined an informal quilting club in town back in December.
I was going through a bunch of online tutorials and discovered all of Jenny's tut's.
That's when I decided to check out the M* website and found the Forum!
Now I wish I had discovered quilting YEARS ago!!

Welcome to the group! You can post anyways..... if more people posted their non-quilt stuff, you'll be amazed to find others here with like interests. I went ahead and posted a photo of my candle mats - they weren't made with fabric nor were they quilted. I just hand stitched them.

Have you tried threadbias? It's a cool site too.
