I love quilting with my friends. It's the best time. They are the best bunch of women you could know. We do alot of talking and laughing and a little quilting.

I am in a sewing group that meets at a local church. We sew walker and wheelchair bags for the elderly once a week. Love the girls.

I have a quilting group that meets Tuesdays at the Presque Isle clubhouse for a day of sewing and inspiration! The camaraderie and Sharing is such good “ therapy”๐Ÿ‘

Sew very true

My friend, Harriett Williams, and I see at least two days together most weeks. We keep each other busy and sane. See much fun!!

Sew true!!

Yep!!

true

And this is why we spent 12 hours together last Saturday. Noreen Krabbe Carolyn Putt Katherine Maier Lustila

Sorry to hear that. I have just reminded stores that they can sell kits and patterns.

How many people can say they taught themselves how to quilt? ... See MoreSee Less

Yes Ma’am. Never touched a sewing machine until I was 34, my husband bought himself a new bicycle so I said, wait, I want a sewing machine. Taught myself by reading the manual and then took a local class with the PACE group and made my first table runner, ten times over then got board and said, hmmm I think I’d like to make a quilt, and so I did. The pattern is by Granola Girl.

I still have the front of the original quilt that my Scottish great grandmother, (the quilter) and Irish grandmother, (the seamstress), used as a learning tool to teach me my sewing and quilting when I was 9. A beautiful red and white Irish chain. Some sewn by hand and some on a treadle sewing machine. I can't let it go, but it's a mess, (those must be the parts I sewed). I've continued sewing in the last 60+ years, but didn't take up quilting until I was in my 50's, so I guess I was self taught because both my teachers were long gone; but they planted the bug. ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿ’•

I did in college. My grandma used to make quilts for grand kids. I realised there wasn't anyone that quilted for the great-grands (my nieces and nephew) so I bought a book, needle, thread, scissors, and the only (ugly) fabric I could afford and made my first quilt. I asked for a sewing machine for my birthday and never stopped. It's been about 16 years.

I bought the book Quilting for dummies

Took myself off to the sewing shop to learn how to read patterns when I was sixty when I was about seventy went to sit and sew were all these lovely ladies taught me how to quilt I'm still hooked so I thank the ladies for their patience and great laughs I was honoured to be amongst them

Yep. Cut out a cardboard hexi and did it all by hand. Grannies Flower Garden in memory of my mom who had recently passed away.

Me! I watched a lot of Eleanor Burns, read quilting magazines, and relied on my lifelong sewing skils.

Yup. Learned to sew when I was a kid - from my grandma and 4H. Wasn't in the mood to sew clothes anymore so I picked up a quilt kit at Joanns. Love it so I picked up another one. Then decided to tackle a DWR quilt using satins and silks. LMAO!!! It turned out great but not something I would do again!!!

My Paternal Grandmother made a couple of quilts before I was born, but didn't care for it, I guess. I have 1 of them. No one else in my family (It's a BIG family!) sews at all. I taught myself to sew and quilt. My children, and grandchildren, have and are being taught the basics, so I am excited to see if it takes hold with any of them!

I started sewing when I was 10 in grade school. After making just about everything I taught myself to quilt. I took two classes to understand the folding and cutting and how pieces sew together but then on my own. I have been and still sew today for over 60years.

I taught myself although I learned to sew when I was 12 and learned a lot from Mrs. Keys in Home Economics class at school. The actual quilting was self taught.

Everything I know about quilting I taught myself! It may not always be the correct way to go about it but it works!

I bought a book for $5.00 in 1979 of a 101 quilt patterns and at the end of that first year I had made almost every block in the book some turned out great some didn’t make it into a quilt! After 40 years of sewing my husband had no idea what my hobby would cost! But he loves to go to quilt shows as much as I do!! That’s true love!! Enjoy the journey!

Me! I sewed for years. The hardest part was getting over the idea that it didn’t have to match like with clothes. For the past 13 years quilting is my favorite thing to do besides machine embroidery.

I just finished my first ever row by row quilt. It took me 2 years, but I love it! I did all of the rows and had someone else do the quilting.

My mother in law showed me how to make curtains and pillows for my new house. That was the first time I used a sewing machine. I then started to make some bags, then I started quilting.

No lie I have the best mom that taught me at a young age โ˜บ๏ธ

I learned how to sew in 4-H over 50 years ago! Made most of my clothes in high school than decided to make my first quilt from those scraps!! I was hooked! Now my focus is bags, table runners and quilts! Love it!

I learned at Cheerful Givers Club years ago. I would sit with Ruth Caids and listen to her remember the good ole days in Lovells .she taught me to do the quilting by hand.

Me! My dad made beautiful quilts but I never could get it. I wish I had tried harder while he was alive.

Me, 70 years old! Bought a table runner pattern and joined an online class๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿปโค๏ธ

It's in my blood from grandma and great aunt. They were gone when I started, so yes, I taught myself.

YouTube, and friends at my quilt guild. Now, I teach others how to quilt!

I did. With a little long distance help from my sister.

Taught myself and took some classes and have great "quilty" friends!

If someone paid me 1 Million dollars to give away all my fabric, and sewing supplies I would.....
a. take the money
b. Not take the money

I'm perfectly content with what I have, i can't clean what I have and I would not be williing to give up my grandmother's treadle and my husband's great aunt's hand crank mchines, nor the quilts from three generations of quilters. You can build a mansion, but you can't replace those hand made vintage quilts from grandma, great grandma. I am also blessed with a husband who told me to go buy a new embroidery machine today becasue mine is over 10 years old and in need of repairs.

Take the money, upgrade not only see machines, fabric and supplies but build/buy a new home and have my craft/sewing room like I want it....then donate, donate, donate! We receive gifts not to keep to ourselves. But to hello others as well!

Take the money and upgrade and still have enough money left over to build a fantastic sewing room!

Take the money , so I could start over and build a house with a great sewing room I could get into.

This is tough honestly. Because yes, the money gets me all new. But then I have to give up all the sewing notions that I have inherited from all the amazing women who came before me and are no longer here to share sewing with me.

I would take the money...build a house with a HUGE sewing room, and buy all new machines and supplies and fabric. 1 million should be enough. Then I could retire from my day job and make things to donate!!!

If course, I can buy more, have a dedicated quilting room etc.

Take it, give up the fabric, and go shopping. That is half the fun anyway.

Take the money so I can keep donating quilts to good causes

take the money so I can buy new family and put it into the new studio I woud have added to my house ... with a new QUILTING machine ...

Take the money! With that much money, I would have my stash replenished in no time!

How much fabric could I buy with a million dollars?? A new upgraded sewing machine? Of course!! You bet I'd take the money!! There is no stipulation that I can't ever buy fabric or sew again!!!

I'd take the money and buy new fabric, plus a new quilting machine

Looks like a consensus, we'd all take the money, upgrade and replace. Think how beautiful, and clean and organized that sewing room/she shed/addition or whatever would be!!! What a blast that would be.

Take the $$$. Think about what I could by...machine I've always dreamed of, get rid of all the fabric I will never use. I could do this.

Take the money, I could add a large sewing room on the main floor, make my sewing room back into a bedroom, buy a sewing machine in every color (make) and restock....oh, what I could do with a million dollars!!

I’d take the money for an awesome studio and upgraded machines.

I would take the money. I can restock with new in a new house and a heated she shed, with lightning rods so that it doesn't end up like Cheryl's she shed. Lol.

Take the money (and hide a few of my favorite pieces of fabric so I can keep it...lol)

Take the money! You can always get more fabric and a better sewing machine. Then you have money lest over.

Take the money. Buy a house with a sewing room. Re buy my sewing equipment.

I would take the money and go out and spend spend spend and replace replace replace.

Take the money! I can buy new

I’d take the $ .... then I could buy more ๐Ÿ˜‚

Take the money! (And buy more fabric and new sewing supplies)
