We have a new featured member: the fabulous Diver!  Heer are some of the fabulous projects Diver's posted on the PBW board:

When and why did you begin making purses, bags, and wallets?

I started making purses about 10 years ago, my first project was a patchwork corduroy bag without a pattern. I didn't even make a lining. I constructed most of my bags without patterns for a long time. Once I found craftster, I followed a few tutorials (The Jordy Bag square bottom purse) and applied my newfound skills to my pattern free purse making.

How long have you been sewing?  

My mother taught me how to hand sew when I was younger, but I didn't start using a machine until about 12 years ago

What type of sewing machine do you have?

I have a Bernina Artista and I love it!

Do you have any tips for anyone looking to make their first bag?

Find a tutorial on craftster and keep trying

What other sewing projects have you tackled?

I've made 2 crib quilts, a variety of nursery items for my son. Infant and children's clothing, adult's clothing, kitchen accessories, curtains.

What other crafts do you enjoy?

Tie dye, hair accessories, bead and wire jewelry.

What's your favorite aspect of Craftster?
The tutorials of course!

What's your favorite PBW project on Craftster that you've posted?

My best Plaid Spring Purse

What's your favorite project on another board that you've posted?

Electric Guitar turned coat rack. It was heavy and required a little handywork from the hubs, but it worked.

What's your favorite PBW project on Craftster that someone else has posted?

Definitely the Jordy bag.
