Seems like I'm finding a new sewing/crafting site daily to feed my sewing addiction!
I'm a SAHM married to a US Marine, currently living in NC. Hopefully living in Japan by the years end!
I sew mainly childrens clothing, and lately specifically for my own children, although I do sell for profit occasionally (not as much as I used to)
My long time fabric obsession is finding adorable printed knits. About 95% of my fabric stash is fabulous knits! So if I'm showing something I made, 99% it's made from knit
Can't wait to get to know ya'll

Nobia, is it?
Welcome. We're a good bunch here.
Good luck with your sewing and getting to live in Japan. I lived there many years ago for a year and loved it. It's insanely expensive there though.

Hi Nobia, and welcome! I'm a SAHM who wonders where in the world all this hypothetical free time is. I sew mostly for my daughter, but am still considered a novice.
Japan sounds very exciting, but I sure wouldn't want to have to do the packing needed to get there!

Hi Nobia and welcome. I love nice knit fabrics too but I'm not lucky enough to find a lot in Australia that I like. There seems to be a lot for babies and a fair bit for adults (although I'm not fond of a lot of that either this season), but very little for in between ages.
Look forward to seeing some of projects.
