Hello, my name is Arlène. I am french but lived in UK for over 24 years. I live in Hertfordshire married with 2 boys.
I bought my first sewing machine about 3 years ago and never really had any major projects apart from a few repairs there and then.
My last piece of work was making a vintage bunting for VE Day.... which, I must admit, got me hooked!!!
Since then I have found myself a new hobby... purchasing fabric!!!
Today I have a few projects in mind which includes a quilt, summer loose trousers, and a reversible hipster bag with zip.
So I cannot wait to exchange with you ideas, tips.
I am so glad and excited to be part of this forum.

Speak soon

 Hi Arlène and welcome.  Make yourself at home.  I look forward to seeing your makes, especially the trousers.  (I fancy making some too.)

Welcome to the forum.  I think purchasing fabric is a big hobby of most of us.  ;)
