piece, love, quilt


One of my favorite things about my fabric obsession is sharing it with my friends. If you are a quilter, please find a quilting forum where you can meet people, share ideas and grow as a person and a quilter. Quilting bees allow you to get together to sew or discuss quilting, critique (gently and with love) each other's quilts, and discover new techniques.

If you cannot find a bee in your area, Start One! Most libraries will offer free space for not-for-profit meetings of interest to the community. You can also try community centers, churches, or businesses that might be willing to lend you meeting space at no charge.

Old Quilters are like old quilts, they just get a little fuzzy and their seams come loose.
