What is your history with sewing?

Started sewing when I was in middle school doing costumes and t-shirt quilts with my neighbor's mom. Got a job with a window treatment company and another that makes seat covers. Now I sew for fun.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I own a brother XR9000. Best anniversary gift ever. It does the job well even if it is really slow after working on industrial machines ;)

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

Rip it out or get more material and start over.

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

Tough one. The three t-shirt quilts, especially the one I made for my best friend from her track and cross country shirts. I will have to do some digging to see if I have a picture.

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

Dress

Introduction

I moved to Austin in April of 2009 from Montana. I've been sewing on and off since middle school. I would like to meet other people that love to sew and learn from them. I also knit, spin, and weave.
