April (contusions96) I was browsing through some old posts and noticed that a lot of members belong to ravelry. What are your names on Ravelry? I'm awentz. I know, so creative!

Laura (apenandzen) | 1445 comments Does anyone know, is there one for quilters? I knit too, but haven't been too into it lately.


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) That's worth looking into! (A site for quilter's!) I don't quilt as of yet but would love to learn!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Laura, here are a few quilting sites you may be interested in! Nothing as great as GoodReads or Ravelry though!

I cam across a wonderful blog that I'd like to share with everyone: http://www.quiltwhileyoureahead.typep...

Laura (apenandzen) | 1445 comments Thanks, Jo!

I have a suggestion for you, too. This is how I learned to quilt - mainly with this book:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/1890...

Sorry the goodread link for this one wasnt too good, cause its a little old now. But the good news is there's a used copy available from a seller listed on Amazon for 37 cents! Hee hee!

It's called Quilts Quilts Quilts: The Complete Guide to Quiltmaking by Diana McClun.

I learned to quilt from following patterns in books, but I learned to knit at my local knitting shop. I know my local quilt shop offers classes from beginner level all the way up. Hopefully you have a local quilt shop somewhere close? If you need any help, I'd be glad to help you - although I have to say I'm no expert myself. ;) But my sister's pretty good, so let me know what you need! That book got both of us started.

Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Thank Laura! I may take you up on that! I'm definately going to look up that book!

I actually taught myself how to knit the summer of 06 and just this summer I taught myself the purl stitch! (I'm not that slow of a learner ~ I finally got frustrated only knowing how to do 1 stitch and I generally only knit when I'm on the mood!) The knitting stores in Manhattan are incredible~ the knitting stores around this area of NJ (2!) are anything but!!!


Bloomin’Chick (Jo) aka The Eclectic Spoonie (bloominchick) Andrea, I'm going to look you up on Ravelry!
