I am a long time member of "Quilting With Us" (QWU). I used to give virtual workshops here. Like many others, I have ventured out as QWU became more quiet.

We are getting the warning that QWU is at risk of being disabled. I fear this is a sign that QWU will one day be no more.

It has become like family here and the thought of losing the friendships we have developed has giving me a sad heart. Like many dark clouds, there is a silver lining. When I ventured out, I created a quilters social network, much like QWU. I never mentioned it, for it was a conflict of interest. However, in this dark hour, it is time to let others know there is an alternative. It does not have to end here.

I would be honored for QWU members to join "Pattern Pastiche". If needed, we are more than happy to create a group for your new home.

Hi Brenda, I thought you must have passed through Calais before. My grandfather came from PEI. I'm not sure what area.  His last name was Cornish.

 Yes, Arthur raised havoc with the tree's here. Up rooted tree's and some went through the roofs of a couple of house. It was wild all day yesterday.  Many power outages. St. Stephen NB is still with out power. 

I agree with you about route 9. I had to travel that road every week for 13 years taking Dad to Bangor for dialysis.  My two sisters took him the other two days.  I seen every inch of that road under construction but  it was well worth it to have all the truck lanes now.  I'm still traveling it with my sister taking her for cancer treatment.  The past two months I haven't been able to take her due to being ill myself.  If your ever coming through here perhaps we could meet up.  My phone # is 207-454-2422.

Hello ladies. Thanks for the welcome.
Irene we travel that route when we go to the Eastern States usually at least once a year. We love the #9 as an alternative to the Interstate. The road is so much better now than in the 80's although it can be a white knuckle drive in a snow storm. Worth it though if you are on your way to Keepsake in NH!
Did you get any damage from Hurricane Arthur? We got pounded with high winds all day & rain & wind last night. Trees down, power off but nothing more serious thank heavens. Clean up today. Storm season is very early this year.

Welcome to East Coast quilters.  I live in Calais, Me on the border of St. Stephen, New Brunswick. Have you ever entered the States on this border crossing?

Hello fellow East Coasters. I hope this group includes East Coast Canadians. I am from Prince Edward Island. I have been quilting for almost 20 years now. I belong to the Ladies Slipper Quilt Guild in our capital city Charlottetown. We have 100+ members. I am new to this site & can tell from the posts that I am going to enjoy it.

Hello Ladies,  I live in Eastern Maine. I have been quilting since 2000 but have only made two large (queen size) quilts. Most of my quilting is baby quilts and table runners etc. I have posted pictures on my page.  My last project was a zig zag table runner made with a charm pack.  I seen the tutorial on Missouri Star Quilt Co. 

Rosemarie, I lived in Hampton Bays, L I in the early sixties and LOVED  it there.
