Welcome to the forum @Gittje.  Your English is very good.  I’m sure you’ll find lots of help on here. 
Bruges is a favourite place of my brother's.  It always sounds wonderful, although he can’t eat chocolate so can’t do those wonderful shops!

Welcome @Gittje .  It's a long time since I was in Bruges; I don't recall any fabric shops as such but lots of shops with lace - and my daughter's MIL couldn't understand how I could spot the ones selling hand made lace from the other side of the road!  Lots of nice chocolate shops too, and cafés and seafood restaruants.  0_0

Welcome. Just strive for enjoyment and don't point out any imperfections in your work, no-one else will notice them. Mostly, good enough is good enough.

Welcome gittje, your written English is Excelllent 👍. I do hope you feel confident at joining in, we were all new to sewing at some time and we can all learn from each other regardless of how long we've been sewing  :)

I am confident in joining this sewing forum, but not so much in my sewing capabilities. It's partly my fault: I am rather impatient by nature, want to master a skill in a short period of time and everything needs to be perfect.

I am glad that my husband likes to follow sewing courses (sewing techniques, pattern drawing & general sewing) so I can learn at home on our own sewing machines and get support from him  :loveit:

Welcome Gittje, your English is very impressive, you shouldn’t worry about perfection. It’s only by making mistakes that we learn how not to make them the next time. We had a lovely time in Bruges a few years ago.

Welcome @Gittje !  I am a beginner myself and am already learning a lot here. Do you know what type of things you want to sew (e.g. clothing, quilts, etc)?
You can't scare me. I taught high school for 32 years.
