I'm a woman in her early thirties. I'm a mother of one son. I consider myself on the path of becoming a decent developer (I'm a computer science graduate that doesn't have much real-world hands-on experience yet - apart from a few personal projects). So, you might wonder... "what is she doing here?", and rightfully so. Well, I've always wanted to get into sewing - I have a sewing machine, and I have made a few dresses. I enjoyed it a lot, but I'm really just a beginner - with all the ignorance and misconceptions that tends to come with just being a beginner. :)
There's really two reasons why I'm here:
- I would like to learn more about sewing and pattern making so I can some day make clothes for me that really fit (and tell others of my journey), and
- I want to build a great web site for people who sew.
To say a bit more about myself... I'm a pretty strong introvert, I really have trouble interacting with people socially just for the sake of having a good time. I really prefer to observe, to think, and to create. I've always been like that.
If I want to make a dent into the Internet in a good way there's no way I can achieve that without talking to people - in particular when I want to make that dent in a space where I'm everything but an expert (enthusiasm can compensate for a lot, but a lack of experience is not one of the things it can compensate).
That's why I'm reaching out.
