    New here, sewing for 31yrs, vintage machine fan

    Hi all, I've never actually taken the initiative to do an introduction at a forum to which I belong...so here goes the first! My name is Karin. I live in Maine and have been sewing since my dear mother formed a "class" for my best friend and I in 1981. We made basic garments for ourselves after school and were incredibly proud when finished.

    I still find sewing to be the very most fun, invigorating (yet relaxing), and satisfying hobby I have every had. I love vintage machines and am playing with a few at home now.

    Perhaps oddly for this site, I do not make quilts. I don't really like quilts per se, but I love TO quilt and do so in many other applications, mostly very practical items made extra special.

    I'm trained as a teacher, currently teach skills to new parents, and am a proud housewife and mother.

    HELLO!!!

    Hello and welcome from New York. So you like to quilt but you don't really like quilts? That is so interesting. What is there not to like about the finished product?

    So glad you can join us. We are a very friendly group and these boards are super active.
    When it seems like the world is falling to pieces remember that the pieces are falling into place. We are nearing closer to the End Times.

    How very interesting. Welcome to the board. I too love old machines. Some of the really old ones are so beautiful. They are just lovely to look at.
    Hope
