What is your history with sewing?

Learning! I bought a machine a year ago. I took a beginning class and made a couple of items, since then I've used my machine to do quick repairs to clothing and household sheets/etc. I have not learned to put in zippers or make button holes.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

Kenmore basic. I

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

Ripe it out and do again if it really needs it.

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

Don't really have a favorite thing.

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

I would like to focus on some of these projects I wanted to do. 1. Make a roman shade out of material and blinds. 2. Alter this dress I really like into a skirt. 3. Take in some baggy black pants.


I am a beginner. My goals are home decorations, pillows, roman shade, ottoman cover. I really want to learn more about altering my clothes. I would like to bring in a dress to make into a skirt, love the material but the top does not fit well.
