I have just joined the discussion and would like to introduce myself. I have recently retired and can now sew as much as I want without having “tired eyes”. I have sewn since childhood and have recently started taking a course at the local junior college. I plan to continue and take as many of the classes as possible. When I’m sewing my mind is at ease. No worries! I like to sew clothes but the fit and styles make it a lot different than before. Also, the fabric selections where I live now are limited. I will have to travel down to the garment district in Los Angeles or go up north to the Bay Area to find the good stuff. I am interested in alteration and fitting techniques. Glad to be here.
