Hello members!
I am just posting this greeting to give you a little info about me. I am a 48 year old woman, I have recently taken up sewing. My mother was an avid sewer, as well as my eldest sister. I love vintage linens, especially bedding. My main interest is vintage fabrics and linens. I have a pinterst account-under debryng. I have been buying on ebay, etsy and through yard sales and church bazaars at an alarming rate!

I look forward to the discussions, and have a lot of questions ready!
