You know what it's like when you have been away for a while, and probably had a nice time, but to get back home, to the familiar, friendly, wonderful place you call home is really, really nice - well that's what it feels like to become a member here!
I was a TSF'er and missed it terribly when it was lost, so I was over the moon to find The Sewing Place. I am looking forward to catching up with everyone's news and hopefully share a bit of my own.
I have been ridiculously busy for the last 18 months, so not much sewing done, but because sewing feeds my soul I knew I had to do something to remedy that, so I have given up some of the things that were keeping me away from sewing and am getting to know my new sewing machine and my sewing room once again. And now I have found TSP I feel better already
So glad to see so many friendly faces - I have missed you.

A big welcome from me to JP. Look forward to catching up.....

Jessie, who is very happy to be here!!  :),  but who has far too many sewing machines to be healthy, and a fabric stash which is becoming embarrassing.

Hello and welcome from me too.

It's nice to see the old names are still trickling in. I keep remembering things I read on TSF but then can't remember who posted them and on the odd occasion that I do, of course, they don't seem to be a member...unless they're like me and have changed their name.  :|
