Been sewing all my life, and now have 3 granddaughters I want to sew for, love Josh Groban and have been a fan for going on 7 years, have been to 6 of his concerts, and have met him personally. Love collecting Dept56 North Pole village, and doing everything I can to help my family.
My sewing interests are:
garment, drapery, home decor, cross stitch, embroidery
My sewing machine(s):
Bernine Computerized sewing machine (does not do embroidery) and a serger. Both are Berninas and I love them.
I am interested in patterns such as:
For myself and my daughter-in-law, I prefer Vogue or Butterick, and for my granddaughers, Butterick or McCalls or Simplicity.

I wanted to respond to you cross-stitch questions. When I work from a kit, the first thing I do is organize all my threads. When stitching, I always start from the middle of the pattern (and the fabric). As far as how to handle the threads on the back, my method is just to weave the threads in at the start and the end. Since you don't have to pull the threads tight, I don't leave more than one inch on the back. I start off by figuring out where I will start stitching, then on the back near this spot, I weave the thread through in one direction, then back upon itself. Then I start stitching. I finish the same way. Good luck!
