I'm still sewing - and loving it :)

In my last discussion I shared the fact that I had started attending a weekly sewing class. I am delighted to write that I have continued attending, and that my sample portfolio is coming along nicely. I was also the very fortunate recipient of a free serger (overlocker) machine from my local Buy Nothing group. My sewing addiction continues!

Yes I am! It leaves me little time to come on here however.

Overlockers are so handy. I don't have one. It would be wasted on me but I know they are really useful, especially for today's stretch materials.

@BellaDoc I still need the necessary equipment but don't have budget for that yet.

I would love an overlock machine...but right now I don't have any place to set it up. Once the boys move out I plan to take over the basement.

Yes, I think that's the key. For now I also dont ahve the space to leave it out...it's annoying having to move it around.

I bought a serger decades ago and could never get used to it and gave it to my sister. She loves it.

Sergers can be quite tricky to use. Youtube has been helpful. Your sister is fortunate to have received it from you. What does she like to sew?

Me too! I used to sew when I was a teenager, but it fell by the wayside..

Luck you. I recently bought a Serger too and it's wonderful what you can do with it. I was one of those people who couldn't understand a single thing about sewing. Then about 8 months ago, I just work up and KNEW what to do.I don't have training but I can sew. And it's a joy to master a machine that can produce new dress for you. It's an addiction. I so hear you !
