The new age of quilting....
Today, some 40 years later, things are a bit different. There are still books, and libraries, and teachers. There is still a community of people ready and willing to share what they have learned. But all of these, books, libraries, and communities, have gotten bigger and...smaller. There are now galaxies of information available, and billions of voices waiting to instruct and guide me, and they all fit in the pocket of my jeans. I don't have to be in the same room as my books and teachers, not in the same building, or state, or country, or contenent. They are all available to me throught the Internet.
I can't tell you how it works. I haven't a clue. What's more, I'm not particularly interested in the why of it. What I can share is what I have discovered there. I can share the friends I've made around the globe, friends as far away as Luxemburg and Sidney. I can share the joy that they have shared with me. Hopefully I can help my quilty friends to open up that little box in my pocket and discover what lies within.
