Hi Diana!

Here's my short story of how it all began per your request :^)

I started quilting in 1989 after getting a quilting catalog in the mail.
Got my curiosity so I ordered a quilt kit. Not feeling all that sure in
selecting fabrics much less a pattern it was easy to let someone else

pick
out the fabrics for the design I liked. I'm self taught since where we

used
to live it took an hour to get to town and all the guilds met in the
evenings. Night driving is not my cup o' tea. But I discovered all the

fun
books, patterns & gadgets that all work together. Since then I've made
probably at least a dozen quilts. I've learned to enjoy working with
triangles, green fabric & will master applique if it kills me g

I found r.c.t.q. way back in 1994 (!). DH (then boyfriend) had just
purchased a computer & he had run across the newsgroups so he subscribed

me
to rctq. I lurked for awhile, then hopped in (after The Great Flame War

was
over g)- and have participated in the goings on like block/fq/siggy

swaps
& HUGs (first one was Ruth's HUG) and have been in on many HUG's

thereafter.
And maybe even an instigator of at least one or two. :-)

I've stayed because of the friendships of those I've met & those that I
haven't met personally, even when they have sent me green fabric ;^)

the
swaps, silliness & fun that the group has offered over the years. I

have
laughed & cried with you all. If you ever get a chance to meet an

rctq'er,
do it! It is even more fun when you gather in groups! You'll discover

all
sorts of things, like there ARE quilt police.... they just reside in

Burbank
g (I'll have to get that picture posted one of these days) Or that

fabric
CAN be stored in the refrigerator, isn't that right Butterfly??!

If I can only find more 'spare' time (and a cooler sewing room) I can do
more quilting & other crafty things that I like to do. Along with

getting
back onto the ng. Back to my little corner of lurkdom.....for now g

Hope
you are feeling better soon!

(((gentle hugs)))
HoBo

Mind Boggling? To say the least. I just love to casually say in a
conversation: 'oh, I got that piece from my friend in Australia'
..... 'hey, here is a great stamp from England' ...... that sort
of thing.
This is a fun thread. I really enjoyed reading Judy's 'Early Net
History.' Now I can say 'my friend the internet pioneer.' LOL

To think, without the net this rather wonderful congregation couldnt exist,
and none of us might know one another... its mind boggling.
Thank you for sharing your very interesting story Judy!

Don't really remember coloring books, but then my folks were both teachers.
Lots of books at home.

I haven't been spending too much time online in the past few days -
getting psyched up for my 2nd chemo. So I've missed this long, but
interesting I'm sure, thread. Not sure If I'll ever be able to wade
through the whole thing, though I've "browsed" some of the answers here
and there.

I began quilting in early 2001. May I think. I hadn't sewn much since
my home ec class in middle school, and before that just a bit with my
mom. But I always loved crafting of almost any kind.

Anyway, my dad had passed away in 2000 and I had gotten the idea of
making some memory quilts in his honor to give to my siblings
(incidentally, to date, I'm the only sibling that doesn't have one --
yet). I saw something like that in a catalog and loved the idea of it.
I just love the soft and tactile aspect of the fabrics mixed with the
warm memories from treasured photos.

Anyway, I was talking about it with a friend, and she mentioned that she
had started quilting with another friend in the past months and they
were taking some classes at a LQS. She asked if I would like to take a
class, but I couldn't commit to an evening class because of our schedule
with kids baseball and scouts and etc. And the daytime classes were out
of the question anyway because we both work. But I asked her tons of
questions and went with her to the LQS and bought a book or two and
ordered some fabric and a new sewing machine online and plunged right
in. And I haven't had a break ever since. I like to make small quilted
projects as gifts, and thus I mostly like to stick with simple patterns.
Someday I hope to make a project just for me, and I would really like
to tackle a Lone Star and also make a queen bed-size Irish Chain. But,
those are "stretch goals" for me. Mostly I like to make memory quilts,
WH's, baby quilts, doll quilts, snuggle/lap quilts. And my new favorite
short project - tote bags!

I found rctq because my friend had been lurking for a while, and was
always talking about hints and stuff she found here. I subscribed and
lurked just a bit before jumping right in! I really enjoyed that this
was such a warm and welcoming place. And I got a LOT of help. So, even
when the group seems to go through a "quilting lull" (where there seems
to be more OT posts and rants going than talking about quilting) I stick
it out and wait for someone to post a quilting question or tip, or even
better - pictures of projects -- my VERY FAVORITE reason to stick around
in rctq! They are so inspiriational!

Whew!

Howdy!
(some copy&pasting may be necessary; beg pardon!
this looks right on my screen g)
Must be the longest THREAD on a subject Ever! ;-D

My family's always been "in cotton." From my grandparents
on Mom's side who were cotton dusters, gloves and tack cloths,
http://www.theragcompany.com/
to my dad's people, industrial mops and floor rugs.
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/award/ndfa/ndf...c200/c226r.jpg
We evolved into at least 5 generations of quilters in my family,
I've been quilting since I was a kid, a mere moplet;
here's a typical home scene:
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/award/ndfa/ndf...c100/c192r.jpg
Our family song: *warning: music plays*
http://louiseward20.tripod.com/ragmop/ragmop.html
R I say R-A R-A-G R-A-G-G
R-A-G-G M-O-P-P: Rag Mop
So quilting was kind of in my fiber, you see;
I've always handcrafted & quilted:
http://home.att.net/~ellison-texas/w...ome.html-.html
Thru' some very vigorous shaking, I ended up here at RCTQ.
It definitely was not because my husband, RagMan;
I introduced him to newsgroups and talking on-line .
(What was I thinking?!)
Good ol' RCTQ-- friendly faces and friendly fire,
good ideas on and off topic, why go anywhere else?!
What made me stay?
Wellllll, this Quilting Party that Sarah threw made a big impression:
"The door is always open and everyone is welcome" at Sarah's;
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10008820+X-8820
"Come one, come all, she said; we're gonna' have a Quilting Party;
I don't care how you get here; just get here!"
Here's Joan, tucked in and waving goodbye:
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10062917+X-62917
LN and Kris and Pat traveled together, picking up Susan & Marcella,
and a few others along the way:

Linda and the Gang wanted to bring their own stuff:

Some of the party-goers took a little side trip on the way:

and she reminded us that she has a Stash Guard:

But I wasn't skeert:
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10022137+X-22137

There was space set aside for smokers:

as well as other amenities:
http://www.moore-warner.com/coups/coup012.gif
Men and children went out to pick cotton for the batting:
http://www.kountrylife.com/content/vin70.htm
Polly gave a demonstration of how to prepare fthe cotton
for batting, carding w/ deftness and speed:
http://memory.loc.gov/pnp/fsa/8c2300...0/8c23936r.jpg
while the rest of us stayed around to wash the new fabric.
Sarah & Wendy heated up the water:
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/award/ndfa/ndf...c100/c195r.jpg
(that's Sarah's favorite punch stick);
Ruth showed us the most efficient way to rinse the fabric:

Entering the house w/ our clean fabric thru' the kitchen door
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10008941+X-8941
we divided into several small groups and began our quilting;
some of us chose to work outside:
http://memory.loc.gov/pnp/fsa/8a3700...0/8a37156r.jpg
Here's LN preparing a frame:

For tips and lessons, Nann took charge of the quilting books:
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10008315+X-8315
Lori and Teresa volunteered to help Merry
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10009859+X-9859
with a visit to Vickie in the summer parlor:
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10022290+X-22290
Mid-morning break saw us taking a little exercise out-of-doors:
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?00105177+NS-177
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?00105183+NS-183

At last it was time for lunch, very much a serve-yourself buffet:
http://lcweb2.loc.gov/award/ndfa/ndf...c100/c188r.jpg
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?00073973+MCC-3973
during which Roberta Z favored us w/ a little Eatin' Music:
http://memory.loc.gov/afc/afccc/p000/p051r.jpg
And then back to the quilting:

One of the most exciting parts of the day,
when Sarah's boyfriend from the LQS showed up:

We all indulged, esp. Sarah. *snicker*

Someone just couldn't keep up:

Indulged & inspired, spirits revived after our afternoon respite.
Kathy called for her "boys, aka Kathy's Kut-ups:

& not to be outdone, we were soon visited by Donna's Dudes:

even Donna had to kick up her heels over this bunch:

was soon surrounded by admirers:

The neighbors

thought things were getting a bit rowdy & called in
some peace keepers:

We stopped for tea:

Show&tell at the close of day brought many delightful sharings;
from one of the smaller groups who had been quilting/piecing
http://photoswest.org/cgi-bin/imager?10030176+X-30176
Suzie showed off this quilt:

Taria had a Finished Quilt (& lovely booties)

(oh, those Kut-ups!)
Some of the day's results were *not* destined to be ribbon-winners
(perhaps too much exposure to Donna's Dudes):

On to supper and more fun and games:

Alas, the day ended, the shindig came to a close,
and we departed in high good spirits

Sandy, what is the address of the French-speaking group? I used to teach
French, but that was 10 years ago, and languages are definitely in the
category of Use it or lose it.

Hmm I joined when I first got my own computer and got online (until then
I had been looking at a few ngs on a friends computer at his home once a
week). That musta been in '97 but I have a real bad memory so it could
have been a year either side.

I joined this ng cos I liked quilting. I stay because its like home -
warm and comfy and full of people who I love, even though we all get
made at each other sometimes. I have made some of my best friends here
and done things I would never have done otherwise.

Hope you're feeling better real soon.
:-)



I also got online in 1997 and immediately started searching for quilters
-- important since I was then living in an area far from any other
quilters. g This group was so friendly and welcoming that I've stayed
and stayed -- I'm still not tired of it!

I've met several people from the group in person, some when they came to
the Las Vegas area in the past four years and some at the Tucson and
Houston quilt shows. I've quit reading other quilting groups (email
groups), except for one French-speaking group so I can stay in practice;
but this one is an addiction!
