this is the first time i’ve ever done anything like this (posting). i feel so green.
i’m at the point where i want to buy a sewing machine. i would mainly like to sew clothes (especially stretch fabrics) and a little quilting once and a while for that special person.
iv’e read the reviews on all the sewing machines. i’m really liking bernina active line. however, from what i’ve read, sergers are the best for stretch fabric.
i thought perhaps i’ll purchase a serger for my clothes and white quilters machine 1740 to take with me on a quilting class. what do you think?
i’ve sewn my kids holloween costumes, some clothes from patterns in the past. sewing is the only thing i like, even when i’m mad at the machine.
my major frustrations has been the tension adjustments. it drives me crazy and i can’t seem to get it right.
i learned to sew in jr high and high school. i plan on takeing a class at the local community college next fall.
iv’e called some stores and they have offered sewing lessons. they said i can even stay to learn one project on a pattern. i’m thinking of doing both school and dealer classes. depends on who i purchase the machine from.
my kids are older and i feel like this is a great time to pick up on my sewing; since the kids are so independent, i have more time on my hands. i’m excited! sewing has been the only thing i enjoy doing.
my joy comes when i’ve completed a project and it’s to my satisfaction.
i’m looking forward to hear from you.
