Hello and thank you for letting me join. I am the proud owner of my late mum's sewing stash so am concentrating on a little stash busting - and some ideas! One of the first things I need to work on is a half-completed Jan Horrox cloth doll that mum started for me but never managed to complete.

I also have a few things in the naughty corner that I need to sternly deal with , like an overlocker.....

Look forward to joining you all

Never, ever put an overlocker in the naughty corner, they are wonderful beasts  0_0

Hi and welcome from me @Di  :), take the overlocker out of the corner and tame it, you'll wonder what you ever did without it once you've demistified it.

Hello and welcome @Di .  If you're near the Malverns I can nearly wave to you as I can see them from my perch 750 ft up in the Forest of Dean!
Beware of coming here to find out about overlockers, that's why I joined and several months later found myself falling into the abyss that is the Dark side  :ninja:

Hi and welcome.  Which part of Worcestershite are you from? I'm in Evesham but moved here from Kidderminster  which  I think boundary changes put in West Midlands. Enjoy your time here wherever you're  from!!  :)
So many beers, so little time.

Welcome to TSP, and welcome to that overlocker.  Once you get to grips you'll never want to be without one.

Hi from me too.

The overlocker should not be in the naughty corner, they are one of the most useful tools to have. We’ll hold you hand when you have a go.

Welcome @Di get that overlocker out, they're so useful. You'll soon wonder how you managed without it.
