Got a subscription to Quilter's Newsletter in 1976 and I was hooked. Kept dabbling in quilting while I was raising my children and working. I finally retired and got to really enjoy it.
Learned to knit, crochet and tat from a neighbor lady when I was nine. My step-father died when I was 11 and we moved away, but I often wish I could go back and thank her for the wonderful gift she gave me.
