Hi, I'm Stephanelli!

I'm new around here but not too sewing.  I've been sewing on and off for around 8 or so years now.  I enjoy dressmaking, patchwork and quilting.  I particularly enjoy projects with a historic hint to them (although I'm not a serious historian, I will quite happily use modern fabrics and techniques) - I particularly enjoy Butterick's Making History patterns.
I'm also interested in corsetry and have finally decided to try and make a corset, I recently purchased a kit from Sew Curvy and can't wait to get started on it when it arrives!

Aside from sewing, I love most textile crafts including knitting, crochet, weaving, spinning and embroidery.  I've recently brought an embroidery/sewing machine and am looking forward to starting a proper project on it (rather than just testing things!)

I have 3 machines I'm using nowadays - a Silver CH03 sewing/embroidery combo machine, a Singer 15K from the 30s or 40s which I converted into a handcrank machine (but I have the motor still should I want to turn it back to motorised) and a Janome 8002D Overlocker.
Prior to getting the Silver I have spent most of my sewing time using a Singer Simple 3223 but when I'd tested the Silver out for what it could do, I decided that I didn't need two modern sewing machines so have recently sold the Singer 3223.

It's lovely to meet you all and I look forward to seeing you round the forum!

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.

Hi and welcome from me too  :D
As it neared the top of the grade, it went more slowly. However, it still kept saying, "I—think—I—can, I—think—I—can." It reached the top by drawing on bravery and then went on down the grade, congratulating itself by saying, "I thought I could,  I thought I could."
