    newbie in Massachusetts

    Hi all, I'll try to get this in a nutshell...
    48, started sewing when my girls were small because I refused to pay $10 per outfit for doll clothes (those girls are now 21 and soon to be 19). Really didn't do much quilting - a few small projects - but mostly garments (dresses, figure skating outfits, etc.) Loved to sew, just didn't have much time while homeschooling (I know, I know... I should have incorporated sewing into my curriculum - oh boy did those years fly by).
    Fast forward to about 2 years ago - finished homeschooling - went to work full time (office). About 6 months ago, dear, wonderful, hubby says - 'you know, you always wanted to start a little sewing business - maybe now is the time' (insert many kisses and hugs for hubby here); hubby upgraded my sewing machine (more hugs and kisses); and two weeks ago painted and put storage into the spare bedroom which my nephew recently vacated (and yet more hugs and kisses for hubby)...
    ... which brings me here - I randomly stumbled upon a tutorial video by Jenny - ok, now I've watched like 50 of them... and I soooo want to quilt something other than a table runner (not that table runners are bad or anything...) So many clear ideas and straightforward instructions - thank you so much. I'm still trying to lock down what my first big project will be...

    Wow, your Hubby is a KEEPER!!! We love to see pictures here on the forum, by the way, WELCOME! I'm so glad you found your way here. Jenny is adorable isn't she, she is how many of us got started with quilting, or re-discovering the passion for it. Stop in frequently, to find some very supportive, helpful, and frequently funny friends here.

      Hi..........glad you joined us. Sheri is right........your husband is a keeper! I think the hardest part of starting to quilt is deciding which one of the hundreds of ideas will be first!
