LHQ - International Left-Handed Quilters Anonymous



I once mentioned that I thought that we needed to start our very own "International Left-Handed Quilters Association".  (ILHQA)

I've changed my mind - I think we need to call it -


Then we could have a meeting online - and I could say -

Hello, my name is Kitty - and I'm a Left-Handed Quilter.

And then you could say -

Hello, Kitty!


Sorry - I'm in a goofy mood today - and I've always wanted to say that - but it's kinda hard to work into a conversation!

And - I'm curious - just how many left-handed quilters are out there in blogland?  Hundreds?  Thousands?  Millions?  (No, Kitty - it's just you and your six followers!)

So - leave me a comment and answer two questions for me - if you would, please -

1.  Are you a lefty?
2.  What gives you the most trouble in the right-handed world of quilting?

Thanks -

Talk to you later - gotta go - gotta sew -



  1. Hi Kitty,
    I could really relate to your previous blog about losing your 1/4inch. Happens to me too often! I'm as left-handed as you can get and I have the most trouble with my rotary cutting skills. I do everything "bass akwards".

  2. Ah, you are so funny! It sounds like an intro to AA but I can say, we leftys are all in our right minds! What's more, back in my day it was all punishable by beating. Therefore, those who held on were either more stubborn or more unable to change. I am very strongly BOTH!
    I would say the very worst thing is left-handed scissors made by right-handers that reverse the blades so that you are pushing them apart when you try to cut. Give me a pair of righty scissors with a neutral grip any day.
    Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.:>)

  3. I'm a lefty! I would love to join your ILHQA! I've noticed teachers don't teach both right and left ways. Well, I did found one instructor and I was highly impress - Mimi Dietrich! Now most righties expect a left handed instructor to teach right handed though, funny huh? I can teach both ways, but want a class of just lefties once! :)


I love reading your comments -
they let me know that I'm not just talking to myself - ;))

FYI - I have always restricted comments to “Registered User” - and I have always moderated my comments - and I will continue to do so. I like to read your comments before I publish them - and I DO publish ALL of them - whether you agree with me or not. The only ones that I DO NOT publish are the “buy-me” and "spam" crap.

So - if you want to leave a comment but don’t like your word verification choice - hit the little arrow thingy to the right of the box until you find one that you DO like. I can’t always read them either but word verification is there for a reason and I refuse to be bullied into taking it off - ;))
