Hello there. I love to sew. The following site has lots of nice and easy pattern links, plus some links for learning. (Just scroll about halfway down the page.)

thank you so much. i will have a good look around all the sites and see what i can do/learn.

i made a skirt about 12 years ago (i must have been about 12 at the time). so i need to really learn again. i have done hand sewing (which i love to do).

thanks again
