What is your history with sewing?

When my daughter and son were young. I made a lot of there clothes. Tried making some for my granddaughter but they keep her in onsies--which are cheaper to buy and cuter. Wish I had an I embroidery machine. Took quilting classes through Lifetime Leaning Institute and was a member of a sewing group 2-3 years ago.

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have Bernina 6000 sewing machine and serger.

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

Varies. Usually rip it out and start again. Recently, I turned a caftan into scrap fabric. I do not know how to alter clothing well but I am willing to learn.

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

A beach cover-up and carryall for beach toys made 30+ years ago for my daughter. I was recently given a photo of my granddaughter in the same dress/cover up. Yes you can see it.

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

A luggage case for a baby carriage; then a strip quilt that I started for my teenage granddaughter.


I am older than average (retired), love sewing and started but not fished several projects. . Could use some encouragement and some sewing pointers.
