Hi everyone,

My Mum, who very recently died, was a seamstress and enjoyed sewing for herself, family and friends too.

I, although love sewing, dont have the knowledge she had, so hoping to learn some  :)

Welcome to TSP and feel free to ask any questions to fill the gaps in your knowledge.  There's usually someone who knows the answer to something that many others don't know.

Good Morning NextMove!  Lovely to meet you.

I'll get you a brew, and maybe you can help yourself to cake!

Welcome from me too.  Before you know it these people on here will have you doing (and buying) all sorts of things that would never have occurred to you to do (or buy).  ;)
