Let me introduce myself: I’m a intermediate level sewer and I’ve loved sewing since I started in 7th grade home ec class (back in the days when girls took home ec and boys took shop). I make about 70% of my own clothes and some for my 14 yr old daughter. I use the Elna Diva and Elna DC 5 thread serger I bought about 10 years ago. I don’t have any desire to purchase a machine with embroidery capabilities, at least not yet. Since I don’t have a lot of time to sew, my goal is to make everything I sew special in some way. I’m going to begin experimenting with surface design and I plan to purchase Creative Surface Design by Sandy Scrivano. My New Year’s Resolution was to spend more time sewing and doing other things I enjoy.
I’m happy to have found a sewing forum and I look forward to visiting often.
