Sew, What's New?

Curating sewing and quilting talent, techniques, and tutorials, since 1997.

Hi there. My name is Laurie and I'm new to this group. I just uploaded some pics of my sewing studio. I do machine quilting, hand and machine embroidery, and finally just realized my dream come true - a longarm quilting machine! I am a retired (disabled) 54 yr old RN; had to stop working in 2001 because of multiple medical problems. I started quilting about a year after that when I finally got over the self-pity party! I still miss working but DO love my quilting! I am also (since having stopped working) a 2 yr colon cancer survivor and also had a spread to the lung. I am a survivor!

Looking forward to getting to know all of you and seeing your sewing spaces.

I'm Lizzie from Arkansas!
I'm happy you found quilting, it's an amazing skill. My mother does some outstanding work, but I tilt more to clothing and home decorating. I've made a few smaller quilts, but she does more elaborate things that I don't have the talent for.
We're happy to have you here, and congrats on beating cancer's proverbial butt. I would give you a hug if this wasn't the internet, so just pretend I did :)

Have a great day darlin!

Hi Laurie, I'm Gena. I live in Texas USA. I am glad to meet you. It sounds like you are a surviver for sure. I am recovering from massive hernia surgery. ouch. Today's my first attempt online since last Tuesday.
My sister bought me a little gracie quilt table and machine for quilting but I never got the hang of it and now my brother lives with me. He was in an accident and has been with me for 2 yrs. My sewing space is my lap and that's ok...not good with machines anyway. Have a great day. Happy quilting. Gena
