    Howdy from Utah!

    I am Grampz! (Darryl) I am 53 years old will be 54 in February. I am a happily married man for over 20 years. I was in the US Air Force for over 23 years. I have 3 children 35,31,13. I have 4 grandchildren 2 boys 2 girls.

    I started quilting many years ago when I asked my wife to make a quilt. she said I don't like to do that. I must of bugged her for weeks. She finally said "You want one so darn bad then you do it!" lol So I said fine show me how to sew. The rest as they say is history. My machine broke down. I went for years without quilting. However recently I have suffered PTSD attacks. My therapist suggested I get a hobby. Guess what I started doing again. lol

    I just recently joined a guild here where I live. I am their first male member. One of the members told me that her husband quilts but keeps it hush hush. She is going to encourage him to come and meet me. I guess I am a trend setter! lol

    I hope I'm able to meet other male quilters on here and also make tons of quilting friends male and female and get tons of advice

    Sending you all Lovez and Hugz
