Hi Kristy Welcome to the MP forum. The school and event section I guess might be a bit confusing to new members. The schools and events are events - retreats - or a school of sewing where many of the members attend to learn new sewing techniques - new to them that is. Often the schools are held at a convention type setting where the supplies and distributors of sewing related merchandise have booths selling all things sewing from fabric lace buttons notions and thread and machine needles as well as actual sewing and serging (overlock) machines.
There is a section on Machine Embroidery where new members can post about themselves - such as Hi Im Kristy a new member from...... I am new to sewing or just getting back to sewing... or just bought my first embroidery machine and what type of sewing that you do everything from hand sewing and hand embroidery to smocking to heirloom sewing to machine embroider. It is the busiest of the forum headings so often you will find other things off topic marked OT that recently had to do with members posting that they were safe in Houston and Texas or in Florida etc.
