    Default Hello Everyone!

    Hey Y'all,

    I'm Kelci and I am from North Alabama. I'm actually SewnByBee's daughter if you know her!
    I actually joined a few weeks ago and I've just now had time to really sit down and explore the forum! I'm new to the site, but not to sewing. I've been sewing for over 10 years now, all because I wanted to hem my own pants. I'm really tall you see...all 5 feet of me. I'm joining because I need some sewing friends. I'm a senior in college, and at 22 most of this generation don't know the first thing about my hobby. It makes sewing a little bit lonely for me-in my age group.
    I like modern quilting a lot, but I'm really into hand quilting so traditional isn't out of the question!

    I can't wait to do some more looking around!

    You can't be 22. Your mother has told us she's only 32. Wonders will never cease.

    Welcome to the forum - and be sure to share what you're working on. Maybe it is time to expose your friends to your hobby - and help turn the world around so they begin to appreciate things for which the have to work for.

    it's best not to try to put it out with gasoline.

    Hi Kelci! Welcome You will find some young folk who enjoy quilting around somewhere. When I was 22 I was knitting like crazy...and none of my 22 yr old friends did that either, lol.

    Welcome from Ohio.
    When I was 22 no one else was really into sewing, hand crafts, etc, as much as I was. Seems what goes around, comes around in each generation. Now that I am an old lady, I enjoy sharing my crafts with younger folk to keep it going.

    You will really enjoy this site and there are lots of younger people (male and female) here to share your enthusiasm with.

    Hello and welcome to the forum from Illinois.

    Young or old - as long as you enjoy your craft; age doesn't matter.

    BTW ~ my winter coat is older than you.
    Keep Calm and Quilt On!
