Hi, I'm Emily and I've just joined. I'm an amateur garment sewer from Shrewsbury and found The Sewing Place following advice from my lovely Aunt @Iminei ! Lovely to meet you all!  :VV:
My auntie made me do it

Thanks for the lovely welcome! :)

I've not been tempted by quilting yet except for some small experiments to use up scraps!
My auntie made me do it
