    New to sewing I have always wanted a sewing machine. Well got my wish this Xmas A very nice Kenmore with 110 stitches.
    I'm 50 yrs old. And now have the time to do what I always wanted to do make quilts. Both of my grandmother's made guilt's and I use to sit and watch them hand stitch them and sew them on the old treadle.

    Welcome from Louisiana. You have joined the right group.Ask questions and someone can help or
    point you in the right direction. One of the best tools of the board is the "SEARCH"
    feature at the top of this page. Click on SEARCH and then type in what you looking for. It is amazing how many questions you will find answers for there.:)
