    Welcome here from one Pfaffie to anaother! You found the best place to be!
    Don't mind your English - there are others around whose Endlish is worse , then there still is the "Dutch Corner" (check out the Non-English forum), and finally there are a few (well, verrrry few) German speaking members around here too!
    In diesem Sinne - viel Spaß bei uns!
    Please check out: - and please vote for my site on GoTop100 and TopCrossStitchSites ... Thank You!

    Hello Ida,

    English is my native language, but I am from Australia and having lived in New Zealand and speaking Maori 50% of the time, and with a smattering of Dutch and a bit Duetsch, I get confused at times. American English is a bit different to the British English and then there is Aussie and kiwi English, even the spellings are different. oh I live in England at the moment, but travel to the USA regularly so when I come back here I am speaking Texan English with a smattering of Spanish from some of my Mexican friends...Embroidery is our common language and as Weinerin says we all eventually understand each other.

    I don't have a Pfaff but have been told it is a lovely machine.

    Good morning, Ida, and welcome to the forum!

    I speak English and Afrikaans only, but with the help of a translator, anything is possible.

    I have Bernina machines and love them. I don't know anything about Embird, though...

    You are very welcome to the forums Ida - I am English with 'school girl' German, so am quite good at reading German, but useless at writing it.
    As the others have said, we are all quite good at understanding what each other are saying, no matter what language it is written in, - even when fingers (or brains) slip and create words that don't exist in ANY language!
    There are members with all sizes and shapes of embroidery machine here, but a lot of the information we share is relevant to all of them.
    We love to see pictures of each others projects, so I hope you'll feel free to share some of your own projects with us. (and if you do something that includes a DesignsBySick design in it you will be most welcome to enter it in our DBS unofficial Contests that run every two months.)
