What is your history with sewing?

As a kid, I would hand sew my Barbie dolls clothes from my grandpa's old socks. I learned to handstich a quilt at an early age. I've machine sewn, off & on, for about 10 years.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Kenmore machine that I received as a gift in 2000. It's in great shape, but one day I would like to get an updated one.

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

I get really frustrated, throw everything away, and don't attempt sewing again for another few months.

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

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

Hello all! I've sewn for years by hand (my grandmother taught me), but I really want to hone my sewing skills. The challenge for me is to sew with confidence (of which I have none at the moment).

What Tina is saying about this Meetup Group

I would like to see someone there as a "guide". One or two people that worked there knew some things, but everything was referred to Shawna. Shawna was busy checking people out and trying to connect with the members. I'm not that familiar with fabrics, so it would have been nice to have someone there talk about different fabrics and what can be done with them. Great turnout, loved it!
