"Hi, Penny I love this site! All the fabulous info in it is just what I need. I'm a newbie to quilting; but have done a lot of sewing for myself and my kids over the years. Now I've decided to tackle quilting..."

"Thanks for all the great info I have had access to since I joined this site. I love it!"
Anna


"Penny, bless your heart for helping turn the light on over my head on how to become more efficient at this new love of mine!"
Patty


"When I have been having problems getting in the mood to work on my quilts that I am committed to finishing by August I just have to check in at the quilting site and I'm back in the mood. It has been wonderful."

"I have recently discontinued my membership, but strongly feel the need to say that you have certainly had a huge influence on my life. Your internet quilting club has given me wings as a quilter. The reason I am discontinuing my membership isn’t because I am not satisfied with what I’ve gained from it, it’s because I’ve got so much to do – it will take me more than two years to complete it all. (I’m a slow quilter ok!) I have not got so many UFO’s (trust me, there are a few hidden safely away!) as that I have WDHT’s (wanna-do-haven’t-had-time’s).

Thank you Penny – your inspiration has been much appreciated.

Regards,"

Dorothy, Durbanville, South Africa
