Hi.
Another new girl here. There doesn't seem to be a little face for startled or terrified so I'll just have to fling myself in.
I've recently bought a new sewing machine...nearly 40 years after buying my first, and I haven't sewn for donkeys ages so I think I'm in for a very steep learning curve.
Seems nice here. :)

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.

I would make that tired bicycle analogy except...never learned how to ride a bike  :|

But it will all come back to you! And you will learn new tricks! I perso love to research answers for others so you can count on me.

What kind of learner are you? Do you need to think about it, watch it being done or do it first, figuring things out along the way?

Welcome wrenkins. You can ask us anything here. We are always happy to help. I think you will be surprised how quickly your skill returns though. Happy Sewing. 0_0
