*** New...I Want To Be Adopted! ***

Please keep this thread strictly for posting that you want to be adopted and chat in the newbie chat thread. Chat posts make it complicated. Thank you.


Can you please post your name and location here if you wish to adopted and I'll do my best to get you paired as soon as possible.

We try to match you with someone in your location where possible - if you dont mind someone from another area, could you say

A Thread will be posted on Fridays listing out all the new adoptions. You will see your Name listed, with your adopter alongside. ONCE YOU HAVE BEEN PAIRED UP - YOUR NAME AND POST WILL BE DELETED FROM THIS THREAD so that we can keep it up to date.

You then PM (Private Message) your adopter, introduce yourself and away you go!

If your name doesnt appear - it just means that we are still waiting for volunteers to step up to adopt

Sometimes, it can take a week or two for suitable adopters to become available but please be rest assured that we will adopt you out as soon as we can.

In the meantime, whilst you are waiting you are welcome to post any query in the **Waiting Lounge** where I will endeavour to help you

If you change your mind at any time or you make friends with another UKS member that would like to adopt you, can you let me know so that I can update the list.

Please check out this forum regularly to see when your "Adoption" goes through - unfortunately there are too many for me to PM individually

Have Fun!!!

Hi! I am a Newbie and would like to be adopted - I am a technophobic so need it all explaining carefully to me.

I live in the CH7 area and am looking for my nearest crop/craft group.

Please help me.

in anticipation!

I am Dana and I have had a craft robo for about 4 years - the most I have been able to do with my machine is make a circle. I would love to have someone "show me the ropes".
