Hello, my name is Hester and I live in the Netherlands. Sewing is my great hobby, I sew since I was fifteen. I remember that I bought a Simplicity pattern, I just did what the instructions told me to do and there it was, my first dress! At the moment I am following a course to become what we call tailleuse. I already passed my modinette exam. When I am a tailleuse I can go further with passing exams. I learn to draw patterns and a lot of other things. I just do this for fun, I do not have much time because I work in the court for four days. I am married and I have three children. The middle ons lives at the moment in the USA. She is a exchange student. She is a bit unhappy so if you know a nice family in Grosse Point, Mi, that is willing to take her into the house, I keep myself recommended (is that a good expression in English? In Dutch it is ! ; ) )
In Holland I am a member of a virtual sewingclub and the ones that have a subscription on Threads like me, are very enthusiastic about it. I have bought old numbers via Ebay and also via the Taunton Press because I really love the magazine and I would like to have them all since it started! We do not have such a magazine here.
Well I hope I have told enough about myself. If anyone has questions, pleas ask them!
