New to this forum, saying hello
Hello there. I'm new to this forum and wanted to say hello.
I'm usually on the Rocky Mountain Gardening forum and had no idea there was a sewing forum!
I'm still fairly new to sewing. I learned last summer, thanks to a good friend from the RMG forum, and was not really going far until I was laid off in February.
Now, I'm having a ball, completely addicted and collecting way more fabric than I have room for.
I joined two other sewing forums, one that I just check into now and then to see if a pattern has been reviewed and one I post on when I need help or to offer basic help to even newer sewers.
I haven't tried knits yet, but maybe soon. I've just figured out how to get a neckline to not bunch and am working on my first pintucks. I have not yet tried pants, but I think I'll try an elastic waist first, then maybe five-panel boxers. If all goes well, I've got a pattern for "real" pants that have a fly and a waist band!
I'm sewing on a little Janome Sewist 525s.
Nice to "meet" you all.
P. S. What does the statement at the top of the forum "...please do not try to upload samples as they will get caught in the server's disk drive and bring down the whole Web site!" mean? How are they defining 'samples'? We upload photos and links all the time on the RMG forum. Are they referring to photos? I would think this kind of forum could really benefit from being able to upload photos.
