Hope you all don't mind another US American here.
I've been sewing clothing most of my life but am always willing to learn something new. I sew mostly for myself and live in t-shirts, shorts and jeans so not very fancy sewing, but I do like to get creative. I've sewn t-shirts (really more like knit tops) with color blocking, stripes in various directions, asymmetric hemlines, etc. One thing I'm not good at is mixing prints so I'm not a quilter.  :)

Thanks for letting me join.

This is such a nice welcome.  :)

Hi, @Renegade Sewist , I am in the Phoenix area of Arizona. Not Phoenix, but close. :) I've noticed a few people from the USA here.
