    Newbie

    Hi all, just introducing myself .
    My name is Shane in my 60s with severe mental health issues.
    As a therapy a few years back I started sewing by hand and machine.
    I made my first kilt by hand about a year ago and been wearing at every opportunity.
    Being out of work I have used a poliviscose material as I canít afford proper tartan. I am pleased with the result and have used a generic black watch pattern although my family tartan is Morgan.
    I hope this is ok for all you guys with traditional tartans and heritage.
    I hope to be part of the forum and please let me know your thoughts .stitch x

    Welcome, Shane -from Cornwall (Ontario Canada)

    I'm sure you will find kilts of all types here, from wool tanks and PVs to utility kilts and acrylic tartans. Glad you are here and have found a creative outlet.

    Welcome, as a mental health counselor for 30 years I highly recommend the FREEDOM of kilts as a most therapeutic cure for most any ailment.
