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!

Happy Sewing!

ps: I'm still waiting for my fabric bundle to arrive (the one I won in the Teddy Quilt contest)   - as soon as it does....  there will be another give-a-way!  Also, just noticed that I have 97 followers ---  this could mean ANOTHER give-a-way to celebrate 100 Followers!!
