Started at 14 in Home Ec class. Have been sewing ever since with lots of breaks in between. Over the years I have made kids clothes, family clothing gifts, fashion accessories, clothes for myself and home dec items such as curtains and pillows.
35 year old Pfaff 1222 and a Janome 8077, a first generation 3 three Juki Serger, 4 thread White serger ( a gift) and a Viking 936 Huskylock.
I can usually figure out a fix or do-over. If not I try to salvage what I can and make something else. Most of my mistakes have been fabrics choices and those turkeys get donated.
It's not my favorite but it has been the most worn thing I have ever made. It's a fleece vest I made about 15 years ago and have replaced the zipper once. It's black and doesn't photograph well but I'll wear it to a meeting.
There are no impediments to my sitting in front of the sewing machine. Sometimes I just need some inspiration.
Meet people who also have an interest in fashion, sewing and fabrics. I try to sew something everyday.
If they enjoy sewing projects and the opportunity to engage with like minded people this meetup is the perfect venue.
