Hi Everybody,


I just registered again because I couldn’t register with my old username “carraik”. 
I have been a member of the forum since 2004 or maybe earlier….can’t remember.
I am a costume designer and when I joined I was just a budding “amateur”
In 2004 I started working in the wardrobe department of the Arena di Verona ( the verona opera house) I remember writing on the old forum about my first interview. Then the bug really hit me and in 2008 I went to London to study costume design and worked there for a bit but now I currently live and work in Verona Italy. I love this forum and have been so encouraged by everyone over the years.

Are there any “other old timers” here?

Welcome to the new forum!  I don’t think everyone has made it over here; but many have and we’re already having some great discussions!

Welcome back, Gwen!  Yes, there are quite a few “old-timers” here, and it seems like the women who were the most active on the last forum have been active here, too!  I’m not sure what qualifies someone as an official old-timer, but I joined the forum in 2008. : )


I look forward to seeing some of your costuming projects!  It sounds like you love what you do.


Happy sewing!

Hi Everybody,


now I can finally reply to you guys. I hope I can upload my avatar next time. I can’t figure that one out yet.

I keep doing the math or something?

Hi Gwen! :)


So good to see you here.  I’m still here, I just get very busy from time to time, so I go in spurts on posting. :)


Are you working on any sewing projects that you can share?  Would love to hear about them. ;)

Welcome back, Gwen! I remember when you first got the interview for the opera house back in the day, and it’s fantastic to see so many people who have continued on in the hobby!
