I decided to join the local Quilt Guild here in Prince George. Everyone was extremely welcoming at last month's meeting and there were even a couple of members close to my age with young(ish) kids.
The Guild has an Applique Social twice a month - but the nice ladies told me that any kind of hand sewing is just fine. I don't do much hand sewing (I actually have 2 quilts in my house that are currently being used on beds that have only about 75% of the binding sewn on). But I'm in desperate need of some social time.
Melanie's 1" hexes and joined the group. It was fabulous. I got my much needed social time with other women who love fabric and sewing as much as I do. And I got to make some fun hexagons. I may become a hand-sewing convert. And I may have to join Melanie's Quilt Along too.
What about you? Do you like to hand sew? If so, what do you like to make?
