Been wondering for some time if there are any other PR members in their 70s - I am and may be the oldest member - if so am going to take my place in the spotlight

Anyone out there want to join in - not necessary to tell exact age if you don't want to but am really curious

You deserve the spotlight for your beautifully work alone. Interested to see how your 70s thread is responded to Carol. 70- that's my next threshhold and while a ways off, it's in sight. PR has a thread for 50 and Fab and another for 60 and Retired; it makes sense for the next group to enjoy posting with one another. And also, I wonder if we have members in their 80s? Sure hope I'm a member of that cohort when my 8th decade roles around.

Count me in, another birthday only weeks away!! Have been sewing on and off for eons but now have fitting issues that didn't exist way back then. BTW I have not yet got my head around posting photos on laptop, let alone on PR. May have help in a few weeks when a son visits. I am not all computer literate beyond PR and am still learning, I can send emails.

Count me in. I believe there was another that posted sometime ago about getting back into sewing and being in her 70s but I can't recall the thread.

And then there is Ann R who is in her early 80s and is a icon for us all.
