What am I?



One who knits is a knitter.
One who paints is a painter.
One who writes is a writer.

I like to sew. So, this makes me a .....? Anyone? Anyone?

  7. Great minds think alike because this very question was bouncing around in my head. I just couldn't find such a funny way to ask!

    I struggle with this constantly. sewer? craftie? crazy textile purchaser who occasionally sews things together?

  11. Always learning!
    Till now for me a sewer was the one who sews...and now...

    You know: what stresses me more writting in English is making some kind of mistakes or using a word with double sense and that doesn't appear a kind soul to correct me!
    Grammatical mistakes everybody excuses, I think
