Hello all!
« on: July 09, 2022, 17:52:54 PM »
I’ve been lurking for a short while and decided it was time to introduce myself. I haven’t joined a forum in years and I’m liking the vibe here. :)

I’ve been sewing for years but after becoming increasingly frustrated with the awful modern fashions I’m trying to level up a bit and get started on making clothes. I keep getting drawn to non-clothing patterns though! I’m currently away from my sewing machine or I’d be joining in the bear sew along. There are so many patterns available nowadays.

@SeamBean

A big welcome from me  :bye: Can't wait to see what you make and we do like to see pictures (if possible)   :)
I’m a fabricholic on the road to recovery. Just kidding. I’m on the road to the fabric store.

Welcome, @SeamBean - the beauty of sewing your own is that you're far less constrained by this month's trends!

Hello @SeamBean and welcome to TSP.
I like to sew my own clothes so I can have the fabrics, fit, prints and colours I like.
