I just came across this info. I am totally uninterested in machine embroidery, but I know others love it. This is the flyer for it: http://www.a1anytime.com/deerflyer.pdf

They got rid of most of the sewing & craft section at the Super Wal-Mart in Covington during their big remodel. No more fabrics at all. There is still some yarn and very basic notions and supplies and not much else. It really pisses me off that WM squeezed out all the indie shops and now they shut down their fabric sections.

Luckily, Annie's Sewing Center in Covington managed to survive and not be run out of business by WM. She has good quality fabrics (garment and quilting) and a good selection of thread/supplies/notions. She also has some patterns. Annie's is at 2256 Phillip Dr.,Covington, LA (985) 867-8067.

Some other survivors: A-1 Vacuum & Sewing Center, 985-867-8167, 1000 Business 190 Ste 4, Covington, LA 70433 (Claiborne Hill, near Goodwill). Precision Sewing, 1-800-487-7397, 3997 Highway 190, Covington, LA 70433. There is also a new shop on Hwy 59 between Harrison and I-12. It is devoted to quilting. I'm sorry, but I can't remember the name.

Okies. That store is called Sew This, (985) 871-1491‎, 70117 Highway 59 # O
Abita Springs, LA 70420-3177

Thanks to everyone for all the wonderful links. Here is one I have. It is in Japanese and is instructions/diagrams for drafting the patterns in a single size only.

I have small narrow feet. It has always been difficult to find shoes that fit and are comfortable. My favorite styles are flip-flop type sandals. When I was a kid I loved running around barefoot. When I was a teenager my dad insisted that I wear shoes. So I would wear sandals or soft suede moccasins with no inner soles.

I just toss my needles out into the trashcan next to my workspace after every major project or after 2 minor projects. If I need to store a gently used needle I put the needle back in it's dispenser, but put it in backwards.
9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Sewing large amounts of fabric (curtains) on: January 01, 2009 08:55:29 PM
I have sewn curtains for my dad at his house twice. The first time was a total p.i.t.a. I struggled with ironing on a standard ironing board and trying to cut out on his very expensive dining table without ruining it. The second time I insisted that he buy a 4'x8' sheet of plywood. I placed a thick blanket down on the dining table to protect it, then the plywood. I covered the plywood with a cotton quilt batting and then a cotton sheet. I tucked the excess batting and sheet under the plywood to keep it taunt. I could use the entire work surface to iron and cut. I set up my machine at one end and that gave me plenty of room for the fabric. It is also useful to use a walking foot to that both layers of fabric feed through evenly. Otherwise you may end up with fabric left over on the top layer.
