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.

Doesn't look like it, does it, meegan?  If you're looking for a chatty group you could join us at Gifty Galore.  Not a day goes by there aren't at least a couple of pages of comments.  I have to warn you though.  I'm the only New Yorker and sometimes they don't quite get me

Anyone still quilting in the City?

I hope everyone is well. The storm was awful but we will re-build. God bless us all.

Hi all, I may be back and forth to the city these days, but my heart is always in New York. Now I have two kids and 4 grandkids in the city, one in the lower eastside and the other in the upper. I grew up in Brooklyn, but have been out of the city, in Maryland and Florida for years. The only reason I'd buy a lottery ticket is if I'd win enough to buy a great apt in Manhattan. It'll never happen. BTW, also lived in Highland Park NJ for several years, but that was before my kids.

How is everyone doing?  This is such a quiet group I hope that means we are getting some sewing done. Take care in the heat.

Yarn Basket--Congratulations.  What a find!  Isn't NYC great?

That's wonderful about the sewing table. And the new sewing space sounds great. I am so happy for you. Enjoy it!

What a find!  On my way home yesterday, I found an old singer Featherweight sewing table!  It was just standing near the crub! I couldn't believe my luck!  I am so happy! The metal supports that hold the machine up are gone but maybe I can find something at Home Depot that will be good. The sewing machine opening fits my Pfaff. For my weekend project I'm going to clean out a small area in my bedroom and clear off my writing table (I have a big clunky computer monitor on my writing table) and make a littile studio for myself. I purchased a laptop a month ago that I can just transfer my files. I wish I could take classes at City quilter this summer but funds are low. But what I deceied to do is sign up for one of Charles Johns sewing project hours. I can work on stuff and get help from my fellow quilters. I feel much better. I want to thank all my quilting friends for helping through a tough time. I'm OK now. When I have my small space set up, I will post pictures.  Bless you all.

So glad you are feeling better Yarnbasket. Sewing always helps, as does walking . Happy too, that you found that fabric store. Thinking of you, Maryann
