First Ever Post

Hello sewing community!! My name is Rachel and live in Melbourne Australia. I am married and have a gorgeous 'fur child', our Border Collie, Bessie (or 'The Boo Dogg') who accompanies me on my sewing journey.

I started sewing about 18 months ago and have become quickly obsessed. I love everything about it - sewing is a wonderful creative outlet for me. I started sewing towards the end of completing my doctorate, and had some wonderful help from a lovely colleague who is an accomplished seamstress.

Since completing my doctorate I have moved to Melbourne and have taken full advantage of the wonderful sewing community here. Such excellent classes, fabric shops and people who sew. I'm like a pig in mud!
