What is your history with sewing?

I've been sewing for ~a dozen years, primarily garment sewing for myself, but also the occasional home dec item.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I drive a Bernina Activa 125, a Bernina 800dl serger, a Babylock coverstitch, and a TacSew Blindhemmer. Also have a Bernina 009dcc coverstitch in the stable, but don't use her much now that I have the Babylock.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

Depends on the mistake. Typically rip out and move on, or recut if necessary. I am not to be defeated by cloth.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

I love all my babies. Ok, maybe not all... At this very moment, I think my favorite garment may be one of my most recent: a short safari-style trench that I drafted (knocked off from RTW) this spring.

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

Definitely another coat. I have all the ingredients for a parka sitting right here waiting on me to have time. (Yeah, I know it's been 105 every day for the past two months....)


Heard about the upcoming meetup and am interested in meeting other garment sewists!

What Leslie is saying about this Meetup Group

Fantastic group of sewists of all levels and interests. Lots of creativity to be shared!
