Junior High Home Ec., years of hand sewing; Had a huge stash for "making curtains". Started sewing bags on the machine , then moved on to garments. Self-taught. Not a super-advanced sewist, just obsessed with sewing and fabric.
A Kenmore workhorse -- maybe 12 years old. All I've ever known. Does the job. I'm interested in expanding my horizons.
I go through the 7 stages -- what are they? Denial, anger, bargaining, acceptance, seam ripper. Okay 5 stages.
A skirt out of reclaimed fabric. Double layers with several tiers each, cut on the bias. Gotta take a picture.
A pair of comfortable attractive shoes I could wear in the winter with skirts I've made. Just kidding. I'd probably sew a jacket with the midnight blue velvet I have.
I LOVE sewing and fabric so much that I started a fabric store. We've been hosting meet-ups for a few months so I've been an informal member. Time to make it official!
