I love to sew, mainly quilts and bags. I am 63, married to Fred and have one son, Matthew who is 25. 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 , one Singer 20. one Singer 40 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!

I'm still working my way through the book Farm Girl Vintage (Lori Holt- Bee in my Bonnet).  Here's my Mama Hen block 🙂. Next up is page 45 Milking Day block.  

Happy Sewing!
Cheers from Helen
