What is your history with sewing?

I've taken sewing classes at Saddleback Community College (beginner, intermediate and vintage pattern class). The most difficult thing I've sewn is a button down shirt. I have a half-finished brocade jacket that I need to finish setting the sleeves and putting on the collar.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Viking Emerald 116 and a Huskylock 936.

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

Sometimes, I fix it right away (usually the mistake is sewing a sleeve in, I sew is on the wrong side..grrr). Other times I can get quite discouraged and leave the garment unfinished if I can't figure it out.

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

A blouse out of two different fabric pieces. My clothes are packed and when I arrive in Georgetown I can provide a photo.

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

Would love to have the capability to create heirloom fabric and construct a gibson-girl blouse (using Folk Patterns)
