Good evening all
My name is Jan and I am from Alaska. I have been married for 20 yrs to a wonderful man and we have 2 children. A boy (19) girl (16)
We have 40 acres and have been building on it for the past 3 yrs. We live a very simple life.
I learned how to sew when I was about 9, my sisters best friend taught me. I fell in love right away. But as a teen I lost it to the trails and tribulations .... :shame:
When We had our son I got back to it with the same vim and vinegar. Well I have to say that I still feel that I am a beginner by the fact I don't sew very complicated things :lol: Along with sewing craft and quilt and clothing I bead, dabble in crocheting. I love to try crafts of all sorts. And as you can see I love to babble :lol: I'm very glad to be here to learn and meet new people.
Loving the last Frontier!
I'm the other Jan ;)

Welcome, I don't know if we have anyone else from Alaska. It is 6 degrees here this morning, but I imagine you are probably a good bit colder.You will find that the people on this site do all kinds of sewing and different crafts.

Welcome, Jan. I wouldn't consider you a beginner even if you only sew simple patterns. What type of beading do you like to do? Formal wear? Jewelry? Embellishments? What part of Alaska do you live in? My dear SIL & her DH take an Alaskan cruise every summer and each one has been different. They live in New Orleans and love the change in weather and scenary that they find in Alaska. What do you love most about it?

Aha! You'll fit right in! :lol: We've got quite a few babblers here. I'm absolutely one of them. Welcome!

Alaska's wonderful. My dh's brother, wife and family live in Palmer. We visited for 3 weeks about 4 years ago and loved it.

Hope to see you here often.

Welcome to the group. I am certainly one who likes to gab!
Hubby and I had always dreamed of taking a trip to Alaska for our 25th anniversary. Well life got in the way. The children were very, very late in coming, and we didn't feel like we either had the money or were comfortable leaving the kids for such a trip, as they are 7 and 13. So maybe for our 50th...
