Hello, I just came upon this message board, and I signed up!
It looks like it will be great fun..

My Name is Linda,
I am Mom to 3 Grown Children, I love Quilting and Machine Embroidery. I do custom Apparel for the schools and local business in my area. and own a Machine Embroidery Website.
I love to digitize and love all things crafts. I would love to learn how to garment sew as that is one thing I know nothing about.

Welcome lwatts,

Nice to meet you. I'm Irene, mom to 2 adult sons. I'm accomplished in garment construction and love being able to tackle whatever comes up, from purses to upholstery and special tacking gear for the family sailors. I have a still new-to-me embroidery machine and would love to learn how to use that proficiently as I continue to tiptoe around it. I know you'll enjoy PR and may also be surprised at how much you are able to share in one area while learning from another.

I'll send you a test PM, when it arrives, there should be a marking by the pink envelope in the upper right of your screen.

Hi There!

Everyone here is incredibly helpful and welcoming. I think you'll soon find yourself at home here. You'll get steady and informed support for tackling garment sewing. There's a message board for beginners too.

I just joined PR at New Year's and am amazed at what a great place this is. I agree, the Review Gallery is terrific and the Message Board is like a research library of sewing. I'm using both of those every day. I've also taken 3 online classes and can't say enough about how terrific they've been.

Have fun!

I have been a member since March. How long must I wait before being able to do reviews?
