When I was reviewing this yesterday I ended up re-posting the August 2015 Teapot Racing info on Facebook.  So this could be useful with more activity.

it is true that this group has not been very active of late, but there is no reason it could not be in future.  this is an excellent place to share your DIY projects.  I look forward to seeing more posts, and should, perhaps, make a few myself...

Welcome Arabella and Sue B.  Unfortunately this group does not have a lot of activity. Various Facebook pages are much more active.

Hi :) I was told this group is a good one from J XD! I make my own clothing and style is in between gypsy/goth and punk! I would love to list and show all of you the pieces I have made from my own clothes, and yes I hand sew all of the pieces! Is nice to see fellow steampunkers and makers on here! And like Cherie I always go with the inexpensive steampunk garb too! Thank you all for the opportunity to be here and post! Thank you again! Have a creative and eventful day everyone!

Greetings to all, and my apologies for not introducing myself when first I joined several days ago. I am Arabella Nightshade, jeweler and enchantress (aka Cherie). I hope to find and share many ideas for inexpensive steampunk garb. Thank you all for allowing me to join your fine group!
