Hi everyone. My name is Pye and I'm in Santa Barbara, CA.

I am new to this list, and a novice sewer. I can't wait to meet everyone and get started on some projects.

Hi Pye, and welcome. Everyone is a novice sometime - Don't let that stop you.! I've been sewing for 15 months. Have you tried making pillowcases? They are pretty simple, quick, and fun.

Hi and thank you everyone for welcoming me!:up:

Well, I would like to learn how to increase pattern sizes. I am a plus size, and most patterns do not come in my size. I'd like to learn how to make a bib apron if I can
