I work full time as a Phlebotomist. I have 2 daughters ages 22 and 20 and I'm raising my niece who's 5. I only have time to sew in bits and pieces. I just recently have had a place to sew so that I don't have to get everything out and put it away each time I do some sewing, this is great. I'm still working on getting my sewing room in order.
My sewing interests are:
garment, home decor, upholstery, quilting, cross stitch, embroidery
My sewing machine(s):
I have a Necchi Supernova from the mid 1050's I found one like it at the thrift store in a beautiful cherry cabinent for $80. for both. I had never heard of Necchi. The first sewing machine store I went to said you can't work on it or get parts. I gave up any hope of fixing it then I found one on e-bay with cams so I bought it. Then I found a retired Necchi master technician who lives about 30 minutes from me.
I am interested in patterns such as:
I don't really have a preference. I taught myself to sew using a Butterick Cabbage Patch Doll clothes pattern. Later someone told me that Butterick patterns were hard to use, but I did'nt know any different so now I use all kinds of patterns.

Hi Brenda, I am also in the process of restoring a YO-YO quilt made by my great grandmother in the 1930s. The best way I know is to re-attach them by hand. Mine is in tatters but it has survived 2house fires and several hurricane evacuations (including Hurricane Katrina) so it goes with me anytime we have to evacuate.
