    Carolyn, its great to see you here! I have been a seamstress for over 30 years. My grandma taught me to sew when I was 12, bless her. She really influenced my life with that gift.

    We'd love to see pics of some of your projects!

  6. Hi Carolyn!!:hiya: Nice to have you!

    I love the 40s, too. I learned how to sew in the 9th grade but haven't sewn in years, so I probably forgot everything I ever knew. I look forward to having time to learn again.:)

    Yes, let us see some of your projects!

    I have a great admiration for those who sew. :bouncing: I can't even sew a straight line with a sewing machine. :wacko:

    Welcome to the VFG, Carolyn. :hiya:

  12. Hello,
    I just found this wonderful site last week and decided I needed to join! I specialize in vintage jewelry currently, but have collected and sold vintage clothing for the past 30 years. I don't know much about clothing, but have always been attracted to it and compulsively bought almost anything I found at thrift stores, yard sales and flea marts. I have so much now that I am finally forcing myself to be more discerning regarding my purchases. I have learned that condition is very important, as well as cut and color, in terms of resale, but I still indulge myself in certain pieces if they really speak to me, regardless of their current salability.
    The resources here are great, and the labels pages have already been a benefit to me. Although I must admit I found them a day too late for a Pucci blouse I just sold on ebay... DOH! I knew it was vinatge, but didn't know it's age exactly, so I listed it with a relatively low Buy It Now (for what turned out to be a 1960s label). Oh well, I still made a very nice profit on the blouse {:)
    I'm really looking forward to learning all I can about vintage clothing, and enjoying this site.
    Thanks for having me,
    Laura
     
  13. Hi All,
    At the risk of double posting, I'm not sure I did this right tthe first time so I'm sending it again. I'm having a little trouble finding my way around the message board, sorry... anyway...
