What is your history with sewing?

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I have a Kenmore basic model and a singer serger. I'm saving up for a more advice sewing machine, but first want to try different models. I've tried the Brother NX650Q and really liked many of the features.

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

Rip it out and try again. Might call on advice from others who are more experienced. If the garment gets too small for me - I give it a friend.

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