Hello everyone. I am new here, but have been reading articles here for awhile.
I am fascinated by the projects you have all made - can't say that I am that skilled!
Although I have been sewing ever since I can remember, (mom taught me at an early age), I don't use my 'talents' as often as I should. (Basically, I have too many clothes, too little closet space left, and no where to go around here).
I LOVE designing clothing on paper, and can make my own patterns - but just never seem to 'put the pedal to the metal'.
Anyways - "hi all"

Hi and welcome fellow Californian,

Nice neck of the woods up there. I'm almost as far south as you can go. :dave:

Maybe hanging out here will get you motivated to actually do something with your creativity. We're great at encouraging folks. :up:
