Tell us about yourself—as much or as little as you like.
I retired this year after teaching Special Needs students for 40 years. I love to machine embroidery and quilt. I do some hand embroidery, silk ribbon, and quilting. The majority of my quilts are photo wall hangings or larger. I also love to read and fish. I have a solid white rescued American Short-hair cat who "steals" my bobbins. I have 3 different short stories published in anthologies and hope to have a novel published next year.
Haven't heard about that event. Some of our group will be going to Paducah to the AQS show this weekend. I do know there is a quilt show in Birmingham in June. Haven't been to it before but hoping to get to go. I hope to get to you in person at our May meeting.
Judy - we meet at the Itawamba County Extension Office on Wyguil Street near City Hall on the second Monday of each month at 6:30. Next meeting is May 14th. We all bring whatever we want to sew on. Some bring machines. Some bring hand work. Hope you can join us!
Just wanted to pop in to say “hello” and introduce myself. I’m Linda Hubalek, fellow quilter and author from Kansas. Books about pioneer women are my specialty, with a cooking or quilting theme mixed into each historical fiction series.
My Trail of Thread in written in the form of letters sent back home while my ancestors traveled to Kansas. Each book mentions twelve old-time quilt patterns, and I put drawings of them in the back of the books.
So if you like to read—besides quilting—please enjoy my blog and book excerpts on my website. Besides printed as paperbacks, my ten books are also available for your Kindle or Nook.
I have about a dozen quilts made by my great grandmother, (that we used all the time when I was a kid) so I’m into antique quilts and patterns. What kind of quilts and patterns do you like to work with?
