Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

I am SO excited to be here. I'm Cassie and I started watching my mom cross-stitch and sew from a very early age. (I always had wonderful handmade costumes for halloween I started cross-stitching soon after, probably around 7 or 8. Since then, I've done cross-stitching, embroidery, knitting and crochet and just now jumping into machine sewing and quilting. I've done a fair amount of fabric dying too. I also like hand-making paper and paper mache sculptures. I can't wait to talk to so many fiber artists. This is absolutely AWESOME!

Thank you so much everyone who helped start this forum!

Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

Hi!
My real name is Jeri but the name Mikatana has special meaning for me and that is what I'll go by here.

I am a Fiber Freak. I knit, spin, felt, needle felt, embroider, dye and make art dolls. Yesterday I carded and started spinning 2 lbs of some really gorgeous natural colored Coopworth wool. I, also, make glass beads (lampwork). I like to take on-line classes and regular ole classes. I sometimes teach batiking, needle felting and felt making.

I am hoping that in the next month or so, I will put together my studio in a room that is waiting for drywall right now. I broke my leg in May and just started walking on it last Wednesday...during that time all my cratfing supplies moved up and down the stairs..I have completely taken over the dining room!! It will be a real pleasure to have a home for all my stuff.

O, and I have gone back to school to get my Fine Arts degree and to get a "Multimedia" degree....web design, desktop publishing and CAD.

WhoooHooo a Fiber Forum!!!!

Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

Wow, what a great new forum!

Lots of familiar faces here - Hi Mary and Rose!!!

I'm a guide with the Drawing and Sketching and Classical forums. I've knitted, quilted, embroidered, made jewelry, done papier mache and a ton of other stuff that could be included in this forum for longer than I care to remember.

I've been hoping to get back to some of these things and this might be just the push I need!

Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

Congratulations on the new Fibre Forum.
I was behind the door when God handed out needle skills but I did get a hammer! I use fibres in sculptures and in papermaking as well as collages so I guess I will hop from Mixed Media to here to share in all your wonderful talents. I cannot knit or crochet at all or sew much ( buttons and hems are it) but yes I love fibres and collect them for goodness knows what reason!
I look forward to oohing ahhing at your wonderful works folks.

I can't post any pics right now as I am not set up for it, but thought I'd share a link to a design I created for a knitted collar that I posted in Wearables some time back. Feel free to use the pattern for yourself.
I hope to be up and running with the new computer soon so I will be happy to share some knitting know how, WIP's and lots of pics of my projects!

Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

Hi everyone!
It's nice to see a fiber forum! I am an intermediate/advanced crocheter, newbie knitter, neophyte embroiderer, and decent sewer. Oh, and I've done a little bit of spinning on a hand spindle. I haven't made much fiber-related stuff recently, but once the weather starts turning cold, I get this itch to make blankets and hats and other warm things. And I can't wait to share them all with you!

Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

Hi Diana and Mary : Thanks so much for setting this forum up. It is really great to see it at last

I have dabbled in fibre arts for years ... Mainly patchwork and quilting, knitting and crochet and sewing. I haven't done much recently because I am trying to learn to paint but I'm sure I will get back to it sometime.
I am with VindictiveMuse ... when the darker days start drawing in my thoughts go to lovely materials and gorgeous wools and embroidery silks. They really brighten the winter days.
I look forward to seeing what everyone is making and will drop in often

Re: Welcome to Fiber Arts! Please introduce yourself!!

Wow, so many in here already!

As I am mostly a lampworker/beader, I also crochet, kumihimo, quilt, lap loom weave, and cross stitch. They are usually few and far between, with many unfinished projects (ah, the life of a crafter/artist/etc). Right now I have a quilt going, a bead crochet, and an unfinished kumihimo that's been sitting on my coffee table for about 3 months!

Back in January my mom quit her 9-5 job and opened a quilting store in Ceredo,WV! She has a 17' long quilting machine and has a ton of fun with it. She's been president of the WV/OH/KY EGA and is involved in several local quilting/stitching guilds. I used to help her with some of the EGA activities.

Oh, and an interesting note... though I do a lot of quilting and sewing, I have no idea how to use a sewing machine. And have never used a sewing pattern (for clothes). I do everything by hand. It's quite time consuming, which could be part of the reason why I have so many unfinished projects. LOL!
