WELCOME

This is my first community so please bear with me while I sort it out!
Thanks for popping in - please take time to read the description and bio - this is really important as I don't want this to be a dumping ground for Etsy ads :)

I thought it would be helpful if, when you join, you perhaps say a little bit about yourselves?  So here's mine:

Name:
Polly
Where are you?: London
What are your crafting passions?: at the moment making hair pieces and jewelry - although I've just started knitting again.  I also make cards etc. out of my photographs.  
What would you like to take up?: I'd really LOVE to know how to sew and make clothes - my sister is giving me her old sewing machine so I'm hoping to get over my fear of sewing my fingers together to learn how to make my own clothes.  I also want to make bags, purses etc. out of recycled materials.  I have a student in my tutor group who has won 'young designer of the year' and she is amazing - I think, if a 14 year old can do it - why can't I?  I'd also like to be able to do more than knit one purl one in my knitting :)
Favourite crafting website/ book: www.threadbanger.com and www.etsylabs.blogspot.com

Well, there you go ... welcome one and all :)

Hello there, i've just joined and while looking around saw your page and thought what a great idea. I'd love to join but can't work out how.
Name:Ruth
Where are you?: East Riding of Yorkshire
What are your crafting passions?: painting with soft pastels and the recently found derwent inktense pencils, cross stitch, embroidery, tissue paper window pictures, they are the ones I can remember at the moment
What would you like to take up?: I would love to be able to use a sewing machine without it going wrong.
Favourite crafting website/ book: where to start with that one I love books...my most recent one is how to draw and paint fairyland and I really need to try something out of there.
