Hi ,I have  just registered here. I was on the old sewing forum which just disappeared , so sad.  . I make clothes , (thought not so often now as the material is so expensive) I collect material. trimmings , threads, patterns,  (ocd I think ) and have several machines .   looking forward to  joining in with all the sewing adventures and seeing your work and hopefully sharing mine . Thanks for having me .  8)

Hi Calico - nice to meet you. I used to lurk on the old forum and was disappointed when it closed down, but this forum is so friendly.  :) I'm sure you'll enjoy being part of it and - by the way - I think we're all guilty of hoarding fabric, trimmings and the like whenever we can. (And machines too  :vintage:  :sew:)

A big welcome from me too Calico!  We're a pretty friendly bunch here, and we love new members!

Look forward to seeing some of your projects!

Hello and welcome calico. I thought your name was familiar.  :D

You'll definitely enjoy a good root around in the past posts after being without for more than a year.
