Welcome to the “Gifts by Sheri” blog.  I have a few goals for this blog that I will share, but first let me give you some background on why I am doing this.  Like many of you I juggle work, home, children, grandchildren, marriage and yes my crafts.  I will focus on quilting in my blog, because I think it is a connecting block (ahh…a pun already) for woman that transcends time, age, politics, economic status and well …anything that divides us otherwise.  I know that men are more a part of the quilting world than ever before.   I have never met a male quilter, they are still mythical creatures in my world, but I hope that one will follow my blog and chime in.

So why would I do a blog?  I have always taken for granted that every family has crafters and heirlooms to pass down through generations.  Society over time has changed this.  Folks can’t find the time.  But I believe that if the world of quilting was not so overwhelming in the beginning, anyone could find the time.  I want to remove the scary portion of quilting, share some stories and make you anxious to join the quilting world.

Why my blog is called “Gifts by Sheri”?  Because I hope some piece of advice I share will make you laugh, give you an idea to have an outlet to be creative, and along the way I will also make some items and put them in my Etsy Shop so that you can have gifts at your fingertips if you just can’t manage to get yours together in time for a special someone.

I will give tips on machines, fabric, how to start…and the list goes on.  I was amazed at how many topics came up when I began brainstorming for this.   Thanks again for following, please look for my posts on a weekly basis I have scheduled time on Sunday evenings for this.  If you have any ideas don’t hesitate to send them.  I hope to learn as I share.  My contact information is GiftsbySheri@comcast.net.
