Kia ora – Hi everyone- my name is Robyn I am a new member here. I live in New Zealand – my passion is for costume designing which I do at a theatre and also run the theatre wardrobe. I also dressmake when time and shows permit. I have recently lost my sewing buddy – who was a wealth of support and advice – she was a forum convert so I thought I should give it a go.

    Welcome to the forum!  We are happy to "meet" new sewists from around the world!  I hope you will enjoy yourself here.  We love to learn from each other and share our experiences.  I am sorry you lost your sewing buddy.  Perhaps this forum will help you feel as if you have many new sewing buddies.  Mary

    Welcome, Robyn. Your country has a marvelous tradition of smocking and embroidery. How wonderful you have a career that encompasses sewing. I am so sorry you lost your sewing buddy. I live in a rather remote area and would love to have a sewing buddy but alas, haven't found one around here yet. So I can greatly appreciate how special she was to you. You will find wonderful buddies here with all sorts of diverse sewing passions and experiences. I am sure you will enjoy. Jump right in and post. solo

    Welcome. A lot of us here are in the same boat as you, as far as sewing buddies go. It sounds like you have a great job, and I look forward to hearing more about your work and the kind of sewing you do, and hope we'll see some photos of your costumes. You've probably already noticed in reading the posts that there are quite a few costume-designers on this forum, who have much good advice to share with us.
