Hello All!
I am getting back into sewing after a couple of years. I guess I would call myself a "moderate" sewer. That is I've made men's-style pajamas, blouses and even a pair of jeans, but I am a slow goer.
I generally sew for myself, though I make things for my parents too. (Neither has an interest in textile arts... except my dad made the sails for his boat.)
I live on the Oregon coast and my other interest include: animals, nature, books and fitness.

Hi Catfriend and welcome to Sew Whats New. :bluesmile
There are lots of people here (including myself at times) who are slow goers.
