I didn't know one soul when we moved here. I joined the NSQG (Northern Suburbs Quilting Guild) in hopes of making some friends. I have heard for years that quilters were great woman! I didnt tell a soul that I DIDNT know how to quilt. I WAS GOING TO LEARN.!
During my second NSQG's monthly meeting, I asked at the front desk if they knew anyone that lived by me hoping I could meet a new friends. It was my lucky nite... 2 woman over heard me and followed me through the vendors. I saw these two woman smiling at me.. I smiled back and said "hello."
They introduced themselves..."Hi, I'm Bev and this is Jean. We live by you and would love for you to join our mini bee."
I was so happy. I was going to make friends. It didnt matter to me that I didnt know what a mini bee was. All I knew that I was going to Jean's house the next week. (I didnt let them know that I didnt know how to quilt.. i had only made pot holders!)
|Bevie (our Queen Bee)|
|Jeanie (my partner in crime)|
These woman are a plethora of knowledge. There has been many times over quilting that we have solved the problems of the world. These woman have taught me to love the art of quilting as they were teaching me to quilt. They didnt care that I only made potholders.
