    Default Hello from Canada....oh, I'm a guy quilter too!

    Hello, my name is Denis and I live in Ottawa Canada. Originally from the Ottawa Valley but returned to the city once again.

    As you read in the title of this thread, I am a male quilter. I belong to many online groups mainly for machine quilting. This is the second group I joined for quilt piecing. The other group is a Yahoo group for male quilters where some of our members are well known in the quilting world.

    I started qutliing in 2000 and got my first longarm in 2003. I mainly machine quilt for myself.

    I belong to 2 quilt guilds at the moment. One, here in Ottawa and the other up in the Valley (Renfrew). I also rejoined the stitchery guild here in Ottawa in which I originally was a member back in the late 90's.

    I look forward to getting to know some of you through time here on this list.

    Take care and happy quilting.

    I sent you a message on your profile page - but wanted to welcome you once more. Maybe if you stay around we can get Michael and some of our other male quilters to come back and be active. You guys are so talented.

    Hi Denis and welcome from another Canadian. Now I know that you know where I live if you came from Renfrew. Are you from Portage-du-Fort by any chance. Great to have you here with us.

    Thank you ladies for the warm welcome. Glad to be here. I've tried reading through some fo the forums and I am excited to be here. I'm also enjoying all the eye candy from the wonderful quilts some of you have posted. No matter how many quitls we see, there's always that extra one that inspires us to keep going.

    Hi Monique, I saw your profile and did notice you were from Ladysmith. You are correct that I am from Portage-du-Fort. What gave me away? LOL
