Introducing myself as a new member. I've lurked for a week or so, and decided to jump in and join the group.
I'm a fairly novice sewer, mostly self-taught. I mostly make craft items rather than clothing. I recently started my own business which is supposed to expand beyond fabric crafts, eventually. So far I'm having too much fun with fabrics, though!
I'm in Canada, originally from England.
Looking forward to sharing with everyone.

Welcome, Welcome ! ! I am sooo glad you are here... I love crafting and I welcome another crafty lady to the group.. I try to do a little of everything.., but sewing is my first love.. I like to make 'bazaar items and gifts' mostly, but I will attempt most any craft once as long as the materials are not expensive.. I am dabbling in beadwork a little right now.. But everything is on hold for 6 weeks, I start teaching a sewing class tomorrow thru my Shepherds Center group.. once a week for 6 weeks..Gifts and Holiday items is what we are doing this time..

Welcome, welcome. I'm primarily a dressmaker but do sew crafts for our American Sewing Guild (ASG) chapter. Right now, I'm knitting prayer shawls for the homebound members of our church and am making baby bibs for an upcoming craft fair fundraiser. I'm even quilting the baby bibs. That's the only quilting I have ever done. I teach sewing classes several times a month and like couture and tailored garments plus I do mending for my church members.
Marty ;)
