Marian told me I could write about anything.
I am Lisa and I quilt and do a bunch of other crafty things in a rural area in West Virginia. I learned to sew after an accident left me disabled and unemployed. Having worked since I was 14 years old doing nothing was not an option. I could not work or drive but I needed something in my life to do. I have physical and mental issue to deal with during this time. A woman, the owner, with a lot of patience at a local quilt store took the time and a lot of effort to teach me the basics of how to use a sewing machine and quilt. Without Michelle and her staff at WV Quilt: Barboursville WV, I would never have learned. I am so grateful to them it brings me to tears thinking of how they changed my life and helped me find friends and purpose. Without their determination so many possibilities and opportunities would not have opened up in my life including I would not be a blogger today. The term "read twice cut once" was mottoed after me. I really believe that is the best advice I could give to anyone in quilting or sewing.
I shared this story and ask you to help that person who seems hopeless! You could change a life. When I started sewing at the store we unplugged the footpetal and I sewed by pushing the button. Yes it was that bad. It greatly helped in my recovery and accepting my limitations.
A wonderful way to fill your home with love is with quilts.
Mini Quilts make a beautiful display on walls.
