Title: Hello from a lurker
Post by: Threadhead on June 11, 2018, 15:11:52 PM
Hello...I hate doing this, so let's get it out of the way. I'm from Glasgow and I love sewing and knitting. I've lurked here for aaaaages, but I don't usually have much to say so didn't bother signing up until a few days ago. No idea why I changed my mind, but I'm here now. I'll be in the quiet corner if anyone needs me  :ninja:

Thanks everyone for the welcomes  :*

@Pearl - I sew mostly clothing, but will try my hand at anything that catches my eye. I also knit, but never got the hang of crochet sadly as I do love how it looks.

Hello Threadhead, Welcome, I’m just 35 miles or so north of you. I’ve found this group really helpful and quite sociable too. I mainly do craft type sewing , not clothes for myself at all, though I did when I was a teenager. Hope you enjoy being a member!

@Pearl - that is lovely. Maybe one day, eh?

@Sheilago - Hello neighbour(ish)  0_0 I've noticed there's a few fellow Scots on here, at least someone will understand me after a glass of wine then!

Hello @Threadhead  - I was a lurker for months before I finally plucked up courage to join. I was afraid nobody would be interested in what I had to say, but everyone is so friendly. So welcome from me too. The best place to learn to crochet is on YouTube - there are so many tutorials - some of them are even from people who know what they're talking about. :)

Why Thurso, Snowgoose, when you’re in Cornwall- could hardly be further apart ? :D

Hello and welcome from me too, Threadhead. I bet you see it all from the quiet corner  :o  I'm a popping in and outer and I know I miss things but I've had to ration myself or the day just disappears!

I also knit, but never got the hang of crochet sadly as I do love how it looks.

And I'm the opposite but envy you - there's so much more you can do with knitting - although it takes much longer...but also uses less yarn. Probably too late for me to catch up.

@Marniesews - It has been an amazing time suck already as I discovered the members diaries yesterday and spent the whole evening catching up. I love seeing what other people make, it is all so interesting.
