What is your history with sewing?

Dad tried to force me to learn when I was growing up, and I fought him tooth and nail. Now, at 48, I'm obsessed and looking back with chagrin. He was right...again.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I just upgraded from my little $99 Singer to a Husqvarna Eden Rose...which kind of sounds like I have an exotic dancer living in my office.

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

Curse. Grab seam ripper. Drink a glass of wine. Make the same mistake again.

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

I've been making crazy, bowling style shirts for that guy I married. They're grandly hideous...and AWESOME.:)

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

I would begin the search for the perfect pair of linen pants....and some costumes with which to annoy my cat.


Just discovered I like to sew about two years ago. Huh. Who knew?
