Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I like to believe I am a positive person. I believe in treating others as you wish to be treated. I am married to a great guy. We have 2 dogs & 1 cat. I love quilting, sewing, knitting, spinning, felting, painting, drawing, making jewelry, cooking & baking. I am retired from the WI Dept. of Corrections. I belong to 2 quilt guilds - one in Richland Center, WI & the other in the Rio Grande Valley of TX. I love meeting new people so I'm looking forward to this page!

Yes I belong to the Guild when I am in Weslaco from Nov. to March/April. I have won several miniature appliques. I live at Trails End in Weslaco which is a senior park. i belong to the Heritage Bee as well that meets twice a month at the Girls and Boys Club across from the Library...........2nd and 4th Monday of the month. We have a good sized group. We did the opportunity quilt a few years ago. Your profile meets mine almost identically. I love applique and have now branched out to try some new techniques.....freezer paper and starch which is used by a lot of the pro. appliquers and more machine applique (trying to make it look like hand work like the instructors say it can but I haven't achieved that yet. From a distance it is okay but up close I know). Do you belong to the guild and a bee.
In Canada I do not belong to a guild as we are about 60 miles from one and I never seem to be in town when they are meeting. And I have no one to go with which is also a good excuse I suppose. We have a small quilting group at our community center and we make a raffle quilt (raffle not opportunity in Canada) every year to help support the center.
Thank you for your message and maybe we will meet next winter at Guild. Do you take any of the guild classes. I have signed up to the ones in Nov. and Dec. that Alice Gibson talks about every meeting. Marilynne
