I live in Scotland, UK. I love all sorts of fibre art and have experimented with a number of techniques. I don't have a favourite as I love them all. I have my City & Guilds Parts 1 and 2 in Patchwork & Quilting together with Creative Computing Parts 1 and 2. I love taking classes and also teach locally. I am currently studying to become a quilt judge with the Quilters Guild of the British Isles. I am in my second year. I have not long returned from a wonderful trip to the USA - travelling from Chicago to Kentucky with a few stops along the way. The quilt shows in Chicago and Paducah were fabulous.
Hi, I'm Jennifer! I am a beginner in embroidery and very excited to learn more stitches. I just uploaded a photo of a butterfly that I painted and then added a border of chain stitch & french knots.
Hope you like it! Jennifer

After looking at some of the photo's up here I can see there are a lot of talented ladies, some really beautiful work.
I live in Wiltshire now but I'm originally from Liverpool.My hubby is Scottish - from Aberdeen.Both of us were Air Force .
, myself as a WRAF medic and then a Pharmacy Tech ,DH Air Traffic Control then an Air Load Master.No grandchildren but son aged 20 and daughter aged 8 (my surprise).I now work as deputy to a facilities manager in a small company and love the job variety.
My bug bear is my sewing machine - I have one , I can use it but I hate it!!!!I learnt on a treadle machine and perverse as it may seem I wish I could go back to it.
I have done designer knitting when my son was young, and model stitching when my daughter was young - now I craft for myself anything and everything that takes my fancy
My name is Cynthia and I have been Crocheting since I was 8 years old. I, within the last year have come across the Technique Scrumbles and Freeform Crocheting and I am in love with this style of craft. Looking forward to speaking with many of you soon. Thank you for approving me to this group.
Hi! I'm Heidi; I live in Germany and am a member of the German Patchwork Guild. Patchwork is the craft I enjoy the most; I normally sew by machine, then quilt either by hand or by machine. As I tend to be impatient to get on to the next project when quilting, I'd like to improve my machine quilting skills. I like making my own designs, often variations based on traditional patterns (log cabin is my favorite). When I choose to sew someone else's design, it's usually paper piecing.
My other passion is reading; I especially love the works of J.R.R. Tolkien ("The Lord of the Rings" and more) and am involved in discussions concerning them. Occasionally I combine my two hobbies and make a quilt or fabric book on a Tolkien subject.
I am a church musician by profession and am currently working on a patchwork wall hanging for our church that features instruments and music.
With so many irons in the fire, it's a good thing my children are already grown up and living their own lives, so I can live mine!
I have set up one of my blogs as a place to show my finished projects; here it is: Sewing Rainbows Right now, it features the fabric scrapbook I made last year. More will be upcoming soon as I catch up...
Hi all, I'm Linda Stokes from Perth, Western Australia. I'm interested in many textile related things, especially surface design, including dyeing and printing on fabric. I also love free machine embroidery & am taking part in Sharon's Take it Further Challenge.
Looking forward to meeting lots of creative people here.
Hello to everyone, I am Mrs Thimble from North Somerset in the U.K.. I am passionate about all things textile and feel so excited and inspired to see all the amazing work on here. I am hoping to do a C+G in stumpwork soon, continue with my research of puppetry and carry on expanding my love of stitching. Thankyou to Sharon for starting this inspiring group.
I am interested in historical calligraphy (gothic period) and historical embroidery. The historical embroidery is for the periods 16th-18thC (mostly 16-17thC) and includes surface embroidery, gold work and stumpwork.
Hello, I'm Simone from Germany. I love to create, my sewingmachine and vintage style, too.
Thanks for starting the group Sharon! I was happy to find people to trade ATC and AMCards around the world. But the forum is not so easy to understand. Where can I announce that I made new Gingko ATCs for trade? Sorry, I didn't find it. Here is my blog: http://nadelstiche.blogspot.com/
