I’m new to the sewing/crafting world and need a lot of help and advice so I’m sure I’ll be here often. For starters, i have no backround, what-so-ever in sewing. My mother couldnt sew a button to save her life. Therefore, I have no one to ask for assistance except within the virtual world. So for starters, sewing machine… which to buy? I do have a kenmore (er, from 1976) that I dont even know if I have all the parts for, so it’s probably best to go buy something new. And, do you recommend any “sewing 101” type books to familiarize myself with fabrics, and stitches, etc.
