I truly want to learn to sew. I have been trying so hard at home and just don't have the right tools and supplies. but research and read and try. Being disabled it is all i have to make myself feel like i am able to contribute and feel worthy of being someone and i always love to learn.

Re: Enter the Teach Yourself to Sew Giveaway Sponsored by Janome

I always wanted to learn but never really had the chance to learn. Lost my mom at 9 and then was in an abusive relationship started at 15, became a young mom and pretty much focused on school, work and raising my daughter. Finally bought a sewing machine which sat in the box for a year because i never thought i would be able to sew. Now, since i finally gave myself the opportunity to open myself up and try it, I enjoy it and want to learn more and make so many things. My granddaughter is 6 and it gives me and her alot to look forward to together. We made our first doll dress, i will post, we had so much fun. So guess what she is getting for Christmas? I would love to expand my horizons with a really nice machine and learn to make many beautiful creations. Thank you.
