Who are you ?

I've 38 years, I'm married since 14 years, without children, but I live with 5 persian cats, Clair de Lune, Night Moon, Prométhian, Ambre, Maya. I've a shih-tzu too Haureen.

I knit since the age of 6-7 years, I live in Switzerland beside Estavayer-le-Lac, in a large house quiet at the countryside

I'm dressmaker of trade, but I work  as phone maketing, I sell ecological product for washing home, approximately 19 hours for one week, I've much spare time

I love the knitting, the crochet, the spinning, the tatting, the hand and machine embroidery , the sewing and the tying of carpet

I love see the TV, but always with work in hands

I've discover the english knitting , the beautiful shawls and I've been contaminated, since I knit much more shawls  and I spin lace yarns!!!!!!!!!!!

I've six spinning wheels : a Traveller from Ashford with a quill spindle, a Minstrel from Kromski, I like its old style, an electric wheel from Louët for plying fantasy yarns, an electric wheel house manufacture for plying lace yarn and my two "chouchous" (preferred) Little Gem and Alpaga Pro with high speed head from Majacraft with many accessories for spinnig all kinds of yarns

And two drumcarders : an Ashford for fine fibers and the Petite from Strauch

My dream it's some 48 hours days or more !!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Who are you ?

Thanks for this presentation Midian ! Good effort from you...Should I continue in this way ?
If I could add something to the Florence's remark, it'll be better to write " sewing" instead of '"seam" but anyway, I've understood what you mean without problems...Sewing is the action of making seams on fabrics...
Maybe Happy Skeins will have the idea to make corrections in my text too !

Esclarmonde, maybe it's just a trick for some times, we're trying to refresh our "old past time" english lessons...

Re: Who are you ?

Midian, because of your style and flair, I would say you're a couturiere.  Yes, it's used in English.  Dressmaker is very plain sounding.  Seamstress is also plain sounding.  It means you just sew dresses without thinking of design.  I don't think you, Midian, can just sew clothes without thinking of the design because you're a designer by nature.

Re: Who are you ?

I'm a 38 years old man and I'm nurse, working night in a little hospital.

With my friend Guillaume we own a small organic farm in Alsace (North-East of France). We are doing cultures and picking of aromatic and medicinal plants and their transformation: herb teas, dried herbs, herbs-syrups, jams, marmelades and syrups of fruits. We also have a few llamas for the clearing and with whom we are organizing strolls snacks.

I didn't know what to do with our llamas fleece, then since 4 monthes, I learned to spinn with Sandrine, and since this time, I'm crazy about threads.

Banal.  Sans originalité.  No originality.

I apologize to those who have written me and whom I have not answered.  My work is currently (actuellement) driving me crazy-crazy, as Midian would say.  I'm working on the logistics of a workshop (atelier) for about 200 people in Kigali to talk about AIDS (SIDA).  This is an easy job for me -- usually.  However, this time we're working with the Americans who are bringing in 2000 people from all over the world at about the same time!

They make things complicated.  They are driving me and my team crazy!  Ils sont fous les Américains.

We should have gone to a city like Marrakesh where there are many hotels.  Then I could buy dyes for fibers.  smile  Instead, the Americans decided we should go to Kigali.  But there are only 2000 rooms in the city and there are 2000 people attending.  Can you imagine?!

What I have just done is called "venting".  I think in French you say "raler."  Thank you for listening to my venting.  smile  Venting makes one feel better.  Don't you think?

Re: Who are you ?

Hello !

my name is Anne, I am 30, house wife (and not that desperate) and mother of three children aged 4, 2 and 4 months.

I discovered spinning about a year ago, tasted with a simple spindle (which I still enjoy) and bought a spinning wheel (Kromski Mazurka) a few months ago.
I enjoy making many things by myself (cooking, beads, stitching...) but I really feel spinning is the most important to me ! I almost forgot : I also knit a little !

Re: Who are you ?

Hello my name is Agnes, and I believe that my nickname "Loutre" means "otter".
I'm 39 nearly 40, and have 3 children aged 10, 9 years old and the youngest who is only 5 months old. I live in the south of Paris.
I usually work (engineering) but at the moment I'm in holidays because of the birth of my little daughter. I knit, cook, sew clothes for my children and I, and recently I discovered fibers and spinning, thanks to the blogs' world and then to this discussion.
I have two spindles, one top and one bottom, and a few weeks ago I bought my first wheel (a S10 from LOUET). Therefore, I'm a beginner but I hope that I will soon be able to produce beautiful yarns like the others do !
Unfortunately I will have less time when I come back to work but nevertheless  I will manage to practise all my hobbies, or at less spinning !

Re: Who are you ?

Hello my name is Isabelle, I'm 40 years old and have 2 children (12 and 10 years old). I'm piano teacher, I work only a few hours and have time for my hobbies : knitting and now spinning. Recently I bought a "Sonata" by Kromski and I have a lot of fun with my wheel.
I live in Alsace, near Strasbourg.
I like to read knitting books in english because I'm very interested, but it's difficult for me to write and very difficult to speak (I speak like a "spanish cow" or like Maurice Chevalier, you see yikes ).
