Hi everybody Smiley I've been marveling at all the amazing talent here. I must admit I'm a little intimidated. I've always loved fashion and all things pretty but due to unsupporting parents who want a doctor I've never had a chance to persue what I love. Long story short, I'm ready to pick up a machine and learn and was wondering if anybody have any advice, books, tips, machine suggestions etc please enlighten me.

Thank you and happy sewing Smiley
