A 55yo female that became disabled almost 5 years ago and had to give up my lifelong ocupation of nursing for the previous 35 years. Due to severe depression at not being able to work, constant pain and savings disapearing before my eyes, I returned to my old past time of sewing. Due to my handicap, I am only able to be on my feet for short spurts, but I eventially get it done. My machine is from the 70's, but I always manage to get it to work. I've always dreamed of having a serger and a dressform, but disability does not pay enough for a family of 4. I have a son of 22 with Down's syndrome and due to his shape, I have started making his pants (he hates buttons and zippers) and could use all the help I can get.
