I'm a DC girl! :waving: I'm a beginner, so I'm sorry to say I can't offer much of my own expertise... buuut, my best friend's mom and a family friend got me started, and I'm happy to ask questions for you and pass along the wisdom.
I'm strictly a scarf girl so far, but I'm trying to up the ante with every project.
Where are you in DC? I live in Northwest.
