  • Hello... another newbie

    Hi I'm Sam. A busy wahm with an 18mth dd called Emma.

    I love all things crafty! My mum introduced me to all sorts of crafts from a very young age and I have continued this passion for textiles/sewing etc ever since.

    I was a Textiles and Graphics teacher before going on maternity leave then
    I decided to stay at home long term and start a little venture & website called 'incywincytogs'. Please feel free to take a peek and give me some feedback!

    Looking forward to chatting and getting to know you all a bit better x

      Hi Sam,
      Hope you enjoy the forum, I have given up teaching to take on crafts full time too - and luckily I'm about to have a baby too as extra justification for the big step. I'll check out your site!
      Try a new way every day and work becomes play!

          Hi Sam,
          I'm a work from home mum too with a 3 and a half year old and an 8 month old. I'm just getting into fabrics at the moment having just dug out my sewing machine. Welcome to the forum by the way

            Hi Sam!

            And Welcome!

            I sew too, although not really baby things, as my 'baby' is now ten. The others are 13, 17 and 21.

            Love your togs & pods. And great to meet another Mr Siter too! I'm just waiting for my second Mr Site pack to come through the post, so I can do one for my craft stuff, as well as the Craft Fair site.

            Look forward to chatting with you!

                    Welcome to the forum, i'm sure you'll have lots of fun here as there's always something to talk about. Seen as everyone else has done this bit i feel i should too - I'm 28, mum of 3 (nearly 10, 6 and 13 months), part time accounts assistant and in my spare time i make cards and in the process of setting up my craft suppiles shop.

                    Look forward to chatting (well the forum way) with you.

                      Hello and welcome

                      Sorry to all the men here but it's baby time again! I've come accross your items on Tuggle (I'm signed up and waiting for their new site). Maybe we could swap links as we've both got a baby theme. Let me know what you think.
