Thanks Velma. We actually have a great sewing machine shop in town, I don't know why I didn't think of asking them. I'll go in this week and see what they've got in stock and report back here if I find something good.

Oh, I love the yoyos, quilty stuff, scrappy squares! I have to get some organza to try that scrappy project with the heat gun.
I am really liking all the pretty tags and book marks I've seen.
The crocheted kitty is adorbs! What a neat idea to decorate the inside of the envelop.
Pop-up cards are so fun to make and receive, that will be an awesome project.

There are still 7 mails we'll get to see, it's unbelievable that there will be more!

I'm up for the next round Smiley.

Wow, amazing! Thanks so much! I am so hoping someone will make something so I can get more scrappy ideas myself Smiley. Love, Love, LOVE!

Oh, this would be a Great swap for a beginner! It really is very simple stitching with whatever sort of fabric you want. I'm really loving the most plain and subdued projects best, almost bland colours, no real design features, just patches of old fabric sewn with lines of straight stitch. It ends up looking FABULOUS! You can do it!

There is some seriously awesome loot pouring out of y'alls envelops and boxes in here. Just, really, have you ever seen a gallery like this one? I don't think so. It's happening at the rate of a waterfall at the moment too, impossible to keep up with and comment on everything... and you know what? There are still So Many parcels yet to be received! How are you keeping this organized Sonjaboo? You got some skillz woman!
47  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Good iron reviews? on: September 23, 2016 09:22:20 AM
I'm looking at reviews online and they are so silly. The feature they all go on about is how light they are but, lol, heavy makes for better pressing!
Does anyone have an iron they find exceptional? I'd prefer 1700w but slightly less would be acceptable, and I would like some substantial weight. I often press without the steam (as learned in design college) so an iron that's only heavy when full with water just won't cut it.

Thanks so much for any info you've got, much appreciated  Smiley

There are lots of tutorials online about turning jeans into a skirt, I would look for the one that has the best photos and instructions for you.
I will mention that generally it is best to start with pants that are a bit too big rather than too small to accommodate for the difference in fit when transforming them into a skirt. You may end up needing inserts to widen the hip area, that could be done down the back seam and might solve the problem for both issues Smiley.
49  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Do you use a serger much? At all? on: September 23, 2016 09:15:24 AM
I see this post is older but I'm in here looking for advice on buying a new iron so might as well comment!

Yes, I use a serger often and for many things. I finish all fabric edges for garments, sew the seams on stretch, use it for decorative stuff, etc. Mine was not expensive, I purchased it second hand and have had it over 15 years. It's a MyLock 134D Janome. When not in use or for transport I store it in it's original box with styrofoam inserts and plastic bag to keep dust out. I clean and oil it regularly and have it serviced as often as I feel it needs. I really love having one, it's worth it for me Smiley.

Our friend came & took away 4 chairs, an antique slipper box, a vintage radio, & 2 very old oil lanterns... while some of it might have made for groovy crafting it was nothing I'd be willing to mail, lol!
