  • Hello from Staffordshire


    I'm new to the site, and relatively new to crafting... Typed in 'craft forum' into Google and this place popped up!

    I guess I'm not a huge crafter. Mostly just card making for friends and family. Though I have done a lot more over the summer this year. I nearly always have a cross stitch project on the go, even if I am working through it somewhat slowly. I currently also have a scrapbook project on the go.

    I guess I mostly joined to get to know a little bit more about everything really. From different ideas and techniques to what tools are good to use for various different things, as yea, I'm a bit of a novice. And of course to hopefully find some inspiration to try out new ideas and new projects that I might not otherwise have thought to try.

    Any help / advice / constructive criticism with crafting and how to use the forum is always welcome and appreciated.

    Thanks guys,

        Thanks for the welcome guys. Much appreciated. It's a little nerve wrecking being a newbie in such a large forum.

        I'm loving the look of the place though. Hoping to be stuck in in no time.

                  Thanks for the welcome guys!

                  Heya Mandy.

                  I'm in Hartshill, so near the hospital. I've only recently moved here. I know the area semi-well, but still got some things to learn, for one thing, where some craft shops are! I would love to get to know a bit more about the classes that you guys have at your sons shop.

                  I generally dabble with paper craft and yea, nearly always have cross stitches on the go. I have a friend that lives in Stoke who is also determined to teach me how to knit. So knitting something may be a project for me at some point in the near future.
