41  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: serger on: June 13, 2010 07:51:46 PM
I'm also completely lost on what kind of serger to buy. I've looked at the self-threading Babylock machines, but they are WAY too expensive. I like the features on the Huskylock s21, but I don't know how much it costs. Can anyone help me out on this? It would be much appreciated.

That is so, so, so beautiful! I wish I could crochet, and even if I could, I don't think I could EVER crochet with WIRE for goodness' sake! It's amazing!

As a newbie to sewing, I can't say I understand the term "fat quarters." Could someone pretty please explain this to me?

Where do you get the little tags that say your name on it? I'd like to get some for myself.
45  CANADA / Alberta / Teen sewers in the Calgary area? on: June 13, 2010 07:16:39 PM
I'm a fifteen year old with a newfound passion for sewing. The only person I know in the area who sews is my Home Economics teacher. It would be really great to talk to someone around my age about sewing and crafting.

Hey! I'm new here, and this is my first post! Very exciting, I have to admit.

As a kind-of-new sewer (I'm straight out of home economics class), I've collected quite a few bad habits, some that I'll probably never get around to fixing.

-I buy the necessary amount of fabric, then get home and realize that I was also supposed to buy contrast or interfacing or something.
-I have about a million shades of pink thread...I get a new project and then buy thread, forgetting that I have some back at home that would work just fine
-I don't press open seams before I zigzag them (I don't own a serger, so that's my alternative)
-My hems are always crooked

There are tons more I could probably list, but there is some of them!
