I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 62, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 24. I enjoy embroidery and applique and prefer to machine piece and quilt my projects. I love my vintage Singer sewing machines especially my Featherweight 222K. I've recently started collecting Miniature Sewing Machines, three Essex and one Singer 20 and a Vulcan Countess. My love of sewing I believe comes from my Grandmother - I still have the drawings she made for me to embroider on tea towels many many years ago!

  2. Hi Helen

    Great blog, you do not live that far from me, probably pass you at the Craft show in Brisbane in October.

  3. Larain, thank you! I would have sent you an email reply, but your settings are "no reply blogger". If you want your email to show up, you need to change your settings in your profile.
