Hello. I have just signed on to this list, although I have been reading it for some time. I am now interested in making fine quality clothes for myself and my husband. Years ago, I made all my own clothes because I am less than five feet tall, and few were available in adult styles. When the children were growing up I sewed for them- many Frostline Kits of down jackets, sleeping bags, tents, on a Singer Featherweight no less. By that time, petites were on the market, and I was busy teaching and working on many groups and committees, so I bought my clothing for years. Now I am retired, and I have the yen to sew again. Since I do fine needlework and am a member of The American Needlepoint Guild, machine embroidery is not for me, so I bought a basic Viking, and I am collecting the feet and such as I go along, but, sewing has changed in the years I was out of it! There is so much to learn, so I am hoping to learn from you all. I have already picked up some new ideas. I am interested in quality, not quantity.
My name is really spelled Margaret-Ann, but the registration wouldn’t accept it. There must be others, because they listed me as 7. Hi to my name sharers
