I started sewing about six years ago. I start a project by sketching the dress I want to make,I draft my pattern and cut my fabric and finally sew it together.
I have three machines back home- one for straight sewing(singer),another singer for embrodiery and a babylock machine.I have not bought a machine here yet because have made up my mind on the type of machine I want to buy but am buying one very soon.
The first thing that comes to my mind whenever I make mistakes while sewing is how I can turn the mistake into a design and I always try to do that. In cases where design is not neccessary I try to correct my mistake.

My name is yemmie, am from Nigeria, I just moved to Austin a week ago from Nigeria where I was a fashion designer. Am very passionate about making clothes and I look forward to learning a lot from the group.
