 :sew:  hello I'm new here, I found this forum via some members of lovinghands
I mostly sew up pre loved fabric into quilts or throwovers for charity. I'm currently joining together some large squares I was given. I large white that has been free motioned - something I can't do and 2 others not quite the same size embroidered and hand quilted onto wadding but no backing
As I expect other members have some unfinished projects, can't count how many I have
I'm a retired nurse, mother of 2 and Nana to 2 girls and 3 boys

Welcome from another who got sucked into the dark side (though I was already at the top of the slippery slope)

Hi there, welcome from me too 🙂 I can't quilt....yet! but I've been sewing clothes and soft furnishings since I was a child and making my living from it for the vast majority of my working life.  You will love it here, even stitchers with years and years of experience get stuck sometimes but you'll always find someone who knows what to do 👍
