I am a 43 year old mother of 5 and grandmother of 2 and so glad I found some place to meet others that love to stitch. I am from South Dakota and there is not a large interest here for stitching. More quilting and knitting circles.

I have many WIP and someday I might get them all done.

I am currently working on a trick or treat bag for my grandson.

I look forward to seeing every ones work.

:wave: Hello and welcome to the forum from South Carolina! You have definitely found a forum filled with avid stitchers! I hope you will post pictures of your projects. We've had a lot of Christmas Stockings stitched over the years and a lot of Halloween projects, but I don't remember any Trick or Treat bags. What a great idea! Looking forward to getting to know you!

Welcome to the forum from Kent, UK (below right of London on map).
Know how you feel, there are many more knitter's around, but I just can't get the hang of it and prefer making pictures anyway.

We will love to see pictures of your work, both complete and as you progress.

Hello from Colorado and welcome to the forum. I'm glad you found us. I have only one friend who stitches, and she's in Florida, so this forum has been such a blessing to me.
