That's so sweet. My sister started going to design school this year and I picked up all that good stuff for her too. But the box you put yours in is adorable!

What a great idea! I'm pretty new to sewing and would love to get a box like that! What exactly did you put in the box? Great idea!!

I wish I had a friend like you. I have been sewing everything by hand for years and years-but I very recently was given a very nice beginner's Swinger. It sounds ridiculous-but I was floored at how quickly my dress was hemmed. Seconds. Ridiculous.

Unfortunately I can not troubleshoot with the bobbin situation I have going on, so it's back to the old fashioned way for me.

rockwaterfalls... i've been sewing for over 30 years and learned one not well understood fact... if you are having trouble with the machine... rethread... rethread the bobbin even. although i have to say that i always had bobbin trouble sewing with my moms singer.
