As the founder, I guess I get to break the seal on this one ;) For those of you who are new to introduction posts, just add your reply and say something about yourself, a la below...

Hiya! I'm MrsMarbles. I love the Great British Sewing Bee because I'm a long time crafter who has been yearning to pick up a craft a little more substantial. I started sewing about a year and a half ago, but have yet to sew a proper garment for myself. I've experimented a little with painting on textiles and making handbags, both of which I really enjoy and I'm thinking about combining. Stay tuned!
