Hi everyone, my name is Lucy and I'm new to the forum. I have been sewing for three years now taught by my MIL who has been sewing for over 60. I absolutely love dressmaking and so does she, but she is also an incredible whizz on embroidery machines and owns the Husqvarna Epic and Pfaff Icon AKA dream machines! I have dabbled in machine embroidery too, but still have lots to learn from her. I hope you don't mind me asking on here, but I need a little bit of help on how to do a couple of things on the forum please?

Manuela said people like to see other's makes so I thought I'd share some of my latest ones, but can't work out how to attach photos. When I click on attachments and other options it only gives me the option to be notified of replies, return to this topic, lock this topic or don't use smileys. Can anyone advise please?

Also she mentioned leaving a signature on my posts, but I can't see how to set one up or do I have to do this every time?

Looking forward to meeting you all,

Thanks

Lucy

Uploading photos directly to the forum is a subscriber-only feature (as it costs us quite a lot of money to store pictures), but you can upload elsewhere and link or embed them into a post to share, see the tutorial here: https://thesewingplace.org.uk/index.php/topic,46.0.html

For signature, you can do this via the Modify Your Profile section; https://thesewingplace.org.uk/index.php?action=profile;area=forumprofile

Thanks so much for your patience and answer Francesca. I'm sure it won't take me long to get the hang of it once I'm on the right track.

Welcome @Lucy. I see you are in the Midlands so do you shop in the Rag Market and Barry's?

Thank you to everyone for being so friendly, I feel very welcome indeed, especially after seeing clinking glasses of wine!

In answer to the questions about where I shop for fabric I am very lucky indeed and help to run my family business which sells everything sewing related so I get all my fabric here. I am basically like a kid in a sweetshop!
