Default Hello everyone from Suffolk, England!

Hello everyone!
So pleased I have found this forum! I was a subscriber to the UK Sewing Forum until it disappeared, and I know a lot of folk are desperate for it to be up and running again - we are missing our fix!

Ive been sewing for a lot of years, Grandmother was a Milliner and Great Aunt was a 'Court dressmaker" (my skills are not that good!)

But, I have just discovered the joys of patchwork and FMQ - and am delighted with the results so far. I love old machines, have a Singer 99 hand crank, a Singer 201K which is perfect (
electric) a Singer 401G which sews like a monster, and only this week, a Singer Touch and Sew 760, which arrived in filthy condition, was duly cleaned and runs beautifully, even all the cams work!

I also own a Pfaff Performance 5 - which I really don't like! It was to be my dream machine.......but isn't! My old ones out perform it every time! I have a brother overlocker, which simply does its job well......

Im looking forward to reading forum posts and hearing all about others love for old machines!

I live just outside Bury St Edmunds, in a village called Chedburgh - in fact about 8 miles from Glemsford! I work in Bury St Edmunds, on the historic Angel Hill opposite the old 12th Century Abbey!

Welcome from Texas. You are going to love this board. I know your pain about disappearing forums. The same thing happened to me & then I found this board & love, love, love it. I thought I could never find a better forum than what I was in previously but boy was I wrong. This forum is The best ever!

We love pictures & would like to see some of your beauties.
