My Mom taught me hand sewing at age 5. I made doll clothes out of her fabric scraps. I've been sewing ever since off and on. I've made lots of kids pajamas, blouses, skirts, dresses, and an insanely durable corduroy jacket that my husband has used for 25 years, with several lining, elastic, and zipper replacements.
A Pfaff hobbymatic 919-1, a gift in 1992, which I may love more than my husband. A Juki HZL-F400, purchased in 2012 for the walking foot, many decorative stitches, and buttonhole stitch options A second hand White serger model 534
Sigh... and reach for the seam ripper
A white cotton print sundress with spaghetti straps. I'll try to find a picture.
A new jacket for my husband
I'm a mother of 4 grown children, which means I now have a sewing room and time to sew. I love cotton fabric and am partial to plaids and corduroy.
Great group of sewing enthusiasts!
