  • Hi from Chicago

    My name is Jennifer. I've been quilting for more than 10 years. A couple of years ago I became interested in art quilting. I think I am finally ready to take the plunge and call myself a beginning art quilter. Check out my progress on my website .

  • Hey from WV

    Hi Everyone! I've been interested in drawing and painting portraits ever since I can remember. A few years ago, I began to sew and quilt.

  • Re: New member-Hello!

    Hello - I'm a new member too, and I was interested in what you said about the quilt guild. I had the same experience. I make art quilts, and they all just looked at me like I was nuts- with kind amusement. I love what I do, whether the result are good or bad. I guess it just depends on who is looking...

  • Re: When were you able to describe yourself as an artist?

    Even though I've been involved in creative things (art/crafts... you name it!) since I was very young, I have had very little formal training.
