Just joined, and introducing myself as suggested. I’m somewhat new to sewing–my mom sewed when I was young, but I was never interested back then (she pushed it a bit too much). Recently, though, I got more interested and she was so thrilled she helped me buy a new Viking.
So I’m doing mostly clothing with reasonable success, trying to get practice so I can make my wedding dress in a year. I’ve already heard all the reasons not to, but I’m quite decided on this. Going to start the muslin in a few months when I’ve lost a little more weight.
Beyond that, I’m 29, editor at a trade magazine, and all of my other hobbies are outdoors tomboyish ones like dirt biking, Jeeping, hiking, camping, snowboarding and most recently, home and garden projects on the 70-year-old home my fiance and I purchased.
