  • New Illinois Member - Chicago Area (Western Suburbs)

    Hello! I used to quilt a lot several years ago but work and family life proved challenging. I am now starting to get back into quilting. I enjoy it and and looking forward to being able to use this group as a resource to help me become a better quilter. Thanks!

                        Hello - We may be close to one another. My time is split between coastal North Carolina and Chicago (Midway Airport area.) This is a great group with lots of helpful information so know you can come here to get whatever support you need. And remember to share your creations.

                            Hello and welcome from New Jersey! My bil and sil live near Bucktown. My 18 yr old daughter was out there with them from Sept to the end of Nov. When it snowed on Halloween, she knew she couldn't handle that weather for many more months to come and came home. Are there many quilt shops in Chicago?
