    Welcome from NJ. I'm another 'open presser' as my sewing background is that of garment construction. Find it makes my blocks much flatter and easier to match.

    Don't be shy - we don't bite, lol.

    before you speak T.H.I.N.K.
    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Hi Cherry - welcome to this forum from another UK member. It’s good to have another Brit on board!

    You live in a beautiful part of the UK - it must be glorious there at the moment. I’m across the country from you in Tyne and Wear.

    Cheers!

    Hello from the wet and foggy side of Washington state.

    I also press my seams open, I was self taught and have been doing it since the 70s, the quilts are doing just fine. I try to embrace pressing to the side but I don't like it and so only do it when I join a block swap, which is rare.

    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    Hi Cherry,

    Welcome to the board! I have been to the Lake District. So lovely! My daughter lived in Widnes for a number of years, and when I visited we went to the Lake District. Went to see Beatrix Potter's house too. I loved it out there!

    So 'hello' from Mississippi....
