My mother taught me to embroider when I was 8 or 9 years old. Then followed crocheting and knitting and sewing. Learned to quilt from Hancock Fabrics Block of the Month club and then I found quilting books and magazines and then TV and Fons and Porter. Love quilting. It takes a back seat to golf and gardening in the summer. I also play the organ just for a change of pace. I had to retire I didn't have time to work anymore.
