Profile Information

I am an awesome:
I have been sewing since I was 12 and started on a singer that had a motor added to it after world war 2. I have 5 grandchildren altogether. I worked in the fabric dept of TG&Y back in the late 70's for 5 years. I have always loved fabric and sewing. I dabble in crochet and cross stitch and hand emboridery. I have made items in the past and sold them but I usually sew for family.
My sewing interests are:
garment, cross stitch
My sewing machine(s):
I have a Bernina sewing machine and a Bernina 4 spool serger. I also have an old singer computerized machine (when they first came out)
I am interested in patterns such as:
I usually buy Simplicity, McCalls and Butterick. I find more time to buy patterns than I do to actually stop and make them but I can't pass up when thery are on sale at Jo-anns. I rationalize my addiction to patterns but telling myself they may get discontinued.

Child's sewing machine?

Posted on July 6, 2011 at 11:30am 3 Comments


Does anyone have suggestions of the best machine for a child to start learning to sew?  She is 6 but has sewn some with me and now she wants a machine for her birthday.  Some of the small machines do not have good reviews.  Please share any suggestions.  Thanks.

Mary, Thanks for commenting on my blog. Those stuffed letters in Saints colors sounds intriguing. Any pictures you can post? My oldest grandson is a huge Yankees fan. Maybe some like that would work for him. Hmmm.
