  1. Okay, so I watched the first 2 videos and I figure that maybe I’ll wait until after I get into the new house and unpack and maybe get a new machine before I actually attempt anything/watch the third video. But I’m really excited for this and can’t wait to learn! There’s actually a vacuum and sewing store nearby so I’m going to see if I can get a new machine (or should I try with the one I currently have?).

    Also, how is it that you have all this experience but look like you’re 25? Is there a fountain of youth in Colorado that you’ve discovered?

  2. Jenn! You make it look super easy!

    I learned how to sew on an ancient Singer–it may actually have been their first model that wasn’t a hand crank. That stodgy old machine turned out many a hair scrunchie!

    And now you’ve got me seriously considering buying that brother machine from Target, despite the fact that I have no room, and I’d have to turn my yarn budget into a “yarn and fabric” budget.
