Hello everyone my name is Cheryl and i have been sewing for 38 years. I also do machine embroidery which is a rave in my area. I have 1 child and 1 grandson which is the apple of my eye. I am in the process of trying a home base business out of my home sewing and embroidery of course. I just happened on this group and liked what i read so i am giving you guys a try. Thanks for having me. Cheryl:up:

Hi Cheryl:

We have a couple things in common. We're both newbies to this group and we both have a home based machine embroidery & sewing supply business.

I'm so new that I really don't know what I'm doing because I've never belonged to a sewing forum before. I think this is a little different than yahoo groups.

Anyhow, I just wanted to say hi and the best of luck with your business.

Michele from Ontario

Hi Cheryl, I am from North Alabama, Near Cathedral Caverns and 40 mi. more or less from the Space and Rocket Center, in Huntsville. Glad to meet you. I have sewn since my 20s but havn't sewn that much. I have an embroidery machine but not all the cards to do embroidery. Best wishes for your home based business.
