Since I am starting from nothing, though on black friday my bff and I went to Joannes and I invested in the basics, rotary cutter, sissors, cutting mat, etc. I even had to buy basic thread. I am starting from nothing, I am turning my dining room into my sewing room as I am also a newbie with a full nest who are all just flying the coop in the next two weeks. Any suggestions on starting fresh, must haves organization anything would be appreciated. I also want to say thank you to all, you inspire me.
