    I brand new at learning to sew.

    I am disabled with the early stages of MS. I decided to learn to sew and quilt to kill the hours I spend at home. Im trying to gather the tools and supplies to begin learning the craft. My first project will be a wolf pillow and wall hanging. I have a brother model 2350 sewing machine but I don't have an owners manual or know how to thread it. I am also a severe dyslexic so I need advice on measuring and cutting fabric straight. Thank you for any advice you can give me.

    Its just a basic pillow panel with the wolves and the full moon. I m planning on using some sunset and tan accents. I still trying to gather a stash of fabric, threads and trims for this project. Most of my projects will center around wildlife and native American themes

    If your Brother is an LS2350 you can download a PDF of the manual here:

    At the committee at church we go to, we have this gentlemen that cut us out some boards, out of wood. For example we use a 7 by 7 square board.Also you may want to invest in a cutting board stuff from walmart, they are expensive for the one time purchase,but worth it. It saves us time in cutting for larger quilts.

    Be sure and buy your supplies at Joann fabrics store if possible. You can find coupons online and sign up for email coupons and snail mail coupons. That way you can use a 40% off coupon for any item you choose.

    Go on line and type in the information on your sewing machine it will take you to a web site and show the correct threading. Good luck to you and may God Bless
