I began sewing at age 8 on my Grandmothers treadle machine. I cut up my Mothers bedsheets for fabric! My parents quickly decided to provide what I needed so that I didnt turn into Scarlet OHara with the living room draperies. Now I have everything I need and finally have some time as well. In recent years I have done little garment sewing for two reasons. I discovered quilting and gravity with extra padding have caused fitting frustrations. Now my plan is to return to what I love, clothes and fashion for the New Year. I have been a Threads reader/subscriber from the beginning. I enjoy all levels of information provided and love the inspiration provided by all contributors. The great challenge for our time is to pass this love on, to instruct and to share.
