It's Sew Time!

I am so excited to have taken the first step towards accomplishing one of my 2008 goals: learning how to sew. I have registered for a six week course (once a week, for two hours) at the local community college for beginning sewers.

Here is what we will learn:

  • Simple alterations and repairs
  • Become familiar with sewing machine operation, sewing tools and notions
  • Which fabrics are suited for which projects
  • How to read a pattern, purchase the fabric and how to cut and sew your project
I will need to bring a sewing machine in good working condition (obviously) along with bobbins, operating manual and extension cord. Now here is my dilemma: do I borrow my mother-in-law's twenty year old sewing machine, or do I buy myself a brand new one? I'm always down for an excuse to shop, but what if I find that sewing isn't for me? Hmmm, decisions, decisions.
