Hi. I am a mum of three, including a 6 month old baby boy, and have recently become interested in quilting and similar projects as i want to try and make a few thing for presents next year.

Would love to try a draught excluder or a personalised blanket for some relatives or my children. Is this feesable?

Will not have a lot of time, only times here and there, and am not really an experienced at sewing as my mum passed away many years ago before I wanted to learn.

Tips welcome.

Hi Sarah,. anything is feesable, you just need time, determination and if necessary, a helping hand. We are a good group of ladies and men on here willing to help in anyway we can. You just need to have the questions and we'll try to give you the answers that will get you sewing.

Welcome to the PP forum pages.

Hi Sarah

Welcome to the PP Forum. I hope you enjoy your time here (where permitted with having young children). Quilting/sewing is a great way to relax and be creative when you have some down time.

Hi Sarah

Welcome to PP, hope you'll have fun here

There are lots of easy and quick projects you can try, a simple baby quilt is a nice thing to start with, and you can find patterns here and elsewhere on the internet, or try a copy of PP.

If you get stuck with anything at all, just ask, and someone will point you in the right direction

Hello Sarah

Welcome to PP. I am also a newbie. I joined in Dec 2015I won the December joining prize. It is a lovely table/magnifier lamp. I use it all the time. Our fellow quilters are a lovely friendly bunch. If you click on Projects you will find many beginner projects. I hope you have lots of fun.

I joined in February and was very lucky to win the wonderful joining prize of the magnifying lamp. I now spend my lunchtimes browsing the PP website (instead of working through lunch) and can't wait to put some of the hints, tips and projects into practice. I work at a school so now intend spending the two week Easter break quilting!

I have just started researching quilt as you go techniques so will be attempting that soon - it's handy to know this forum is there if I need it (and I think I might).

Thank you fellow members for giving me back my lunch break!
