    Hello from the province of Quebec

    Hi folks! For my fortieth birthday, my wife had a local tailor made me a kilt. Lovely but now that Iím more educated, there are many flaws with it. I also have a Grey Hamilton one that I wore for a friendís wedding.

    Now Iím looking at making my own, from the Plaid du Quebec. Unfortunately, the province actually ever officially recognized it. But I want to make one in that tartan regardless. I already bought ę*The Art of Kiltmaking*Ľ book.

    I havenít found Scottish origins in my tree so far, but I love wearing the kilt!

    If you're Quebecois, you probably have some Irish in your lineage, somewhere! Close enough ... and if not, no worries!

    Salut!
    Those ancient U Nialls from Donegal were a randy bunch.

    Welcome from Michigan!

    Good luck with the kilt! Barb's book makes for an excellent read, and she's regularly on the forum if you need help.
