This afternoon I went to the post office, on my lunch break, to mail out the Valentine's Day Giveaway winnings.
The postal person behind the counter and I chatted away and got on the topic of quilting. She asked me a few questions and then told me she is taking up quilting as a hobby. She needs something to do outside of work to keep her brain active. I thought she picked a good hobby for that.
She is completely a beginner. I told her she could find a lot of basic information and tutorials on quilting on the Internet.
I had to leave as another customer came in.
I went home to finish my lunch break and as I sat there thinking about my conversation at the post office, a light went on inside my head.
I have all kinds of books and magazines on quilting and such... why don't I give one to her?
I didn't have time to go through my books at lunch. I did however go through them this evening and chose a book that helped me out a lot when I first started.
The book: ALL ABOUT QUILTING FROM A TO Z; from Quilter's Newsletter Magazine, Quiltmaker Magazine, and C&T Publishing.
I plan to stop by the post office on my lunch break tomorrow and give it to her. It is, after all, a Quilter's duty to share the craft and keep it alive.
