I've been reading this newsletter for over a year and decided I'd better get involved.
I have been sewing since I was 11 - 50 years! I mostly did clothes throughout my school years and work years but now mostly do quilting. I have a number of sewing machines--Singer 626 (first one I bought when I got my first job), Singer 403 (my Mom's), a Phaff 1179, a Viking Quilt Designer, a Viking 936 Serger, and the baby, my Singer 221. I've only been quilting since 1999 but enjoy it. One of the favorite things about quilting is the fabric shopping!
My wish list includes a longarm some day. My skill level with quilting has to improve before I can even think of that!
I enjoy reading others comments on this site--so helpful with tips and seeing their work.
