A New Beginning - an Ending

Well, I did it. After a lot of thought I have resigned my almost 9-year position as Quilting Guide at - my first article was written there at end of Feb. 1997! how time flies!

Here's my final newsletter I sent out from on January 13, Friday (my lucky day is always Friday the 13s!):

Dear Quilters,

I have been the Quilting Guide at (originally The Mining Co.) since it began, almost 9 years ago. It's been a wonderful experience and a chance to meet many quilters on the Internet from all over the world. But, it's time for a change and I have decided to leave my Quilting Guide position. is changing in look and feel and I know it will continue as an incredibly useful site for all its many topics. But I have decided it is better for me to leave and move on to work in my own style.

I will begin a Quilting Blog soon - read below to see how to reach me and how to find out what I will do in online quilting in the future.

Thank you for all the support and friendship. I've learned so much about quilting from my readers and visitors.

Quilters' Nuggets Mailing List -
Signup here:

A few years ago, when did not have newsletters, I began a newsletter called Quilters' Nuggets to tell people what I was writing and interesting quilting news.

I'm starting it up again and you can sign up to receive it at this link. It won't be frequent and I promise not to fill your mailbox. Quilters' Nuggets will be completely non-commercial and I will share your address with no one.

Quilting Forum at Delphi - QFAD
One of the things I'll miss the most about leaving as the Quilting Guide at is our Quilting Forum. So, I hope you'll come by and say 'hello' in the new one I have just started: the Quilting Forum at Delphi (QFAD). (it's free to join)
Here is the link: . I chose Delphi Forums because many years ago (1993) I opened the Textile Artists Forum (TAF) on Delphi and have always liked the style and useful structure of the Delphi forums - so I'm full circle back to where I first began my first textile arts forum hosting online! I hope to see you in QFAD!

Thank you for the years of fun and learning!
Until we meet again in quilting spots online, my warmest regards and best wishes that all your quilts will be just as you plan them, or even better!
