Q&A with Sew4joy

GramaBetty asked:
Sewfjoy, hi, just noticed that you are from Erie, PA, ....born and raised there, now live in Cortland, OH...we are almost neighbors. GramaBetty
Sew4joy answered:
Small world as they say. I was born and raised in Pittsburgh. Ended up in Fairview in 1977 and lived in the area since then. What part of Erie?
GramaBetty asked:
Actually lived in Lawrence Park, then at about 14 moved to Edinboro, graduated and got married, moved to NY state, then back to Waterford to raise my 3 children. Remarried in l998 and lived in NY until 2002 then to Ohio...been around, but still call Erie area home. Husband from there also.
Sew4joy answered:
I think Erie is a great place to raise a family. Have you been quilting long. I haven't done much yet.
GramaBetty asked:
Sorry for your loss. I was divorced after 25 years, then remarried 13-1/2 years ago after being alone for over 10 years. I lucked out the second time... My son and his family are still in Erie, a daughter in CA and a daughter in FL .I just started quilting with this course and I am loving it. My daughter from CA was here (she has been quilting for about 5 years, took classes when they lived in Australia ) and we each made a table runner, so that was my first complete project. I am really proud of how it turned out. My husband had bought me an embroidery machine so I can use them both to make some pretty nice quilting projects.
Sew4joy answered:
I got a Janome 11,000 embroidery machine about two years ago and have done quite a bit on that.
