HI I am new. I am in High school and I am the founder/President of my school/city's first Sewing club! I thought it would be a good idea to have access to more experianced sewers for questions or concerns my mebers may have. I sew alot and I am currently working on a dress for Winter Homecoming, next friday. Thanks in advanced! I just thought I'd say hello!

Hi back and welcome. There's certainly heaps of very experienced sewers here to ask questions of. There are also some like myself who is an askee and not even close to making a dress such as you might be making for your Winter Homecoming. Good on you for getting something so rewarding going in your town/school.

BTW - did you know that by posting something about a dress you are making (particularly something special like yours) you have maybe even without knowing it, agreed to post a photo of the finished article. :bg: Look forward to seeing it.

Welcome, Oz! Glad you came by, and sure, run any Q's you have by us any time. You'll probably find you have a thing or two to offer here yourself. I second Pauline--Please share your homecoming dress in Formal Wear when you're ready.

Hey --
Isn't Mary looking for her in Take a Break or somewhere? Didn't she want someone young to work with younger sewers instead of just us old fogies?

Thanks for the hospitality. I'll sure try to upload a picture of my dress when it is finished. :bluesmile

Hi and welcome to the group! So nice to see someone younger here and getting a group of other sew-ers together too! You'll find tons of experience here! Can't wait to see your dress.
