Hello fellow sewers!!
I am an avid sewer, well not so much since my fibro worsened in the last four years. Years ago I set up my own sewing business and made formals and wedding gowns. Oh I do love alencen lace!!! I love satin, ribbons, taffeta and to some extent silk, but to tell you the truth I'm not big on silks. My daughter loves silk however, so I do sew with it.
I have two granddaughters, and my sewing is limited to them these days, although I really have to get around to making myself some church clothes. I have the material and lots and lots of patterns too
I am lucky enough to have my own sewing room, my own embroidery/ sewing machine ( Viking Designer 1 plus the Rose machine) and my serger(Viking). I have my cutting table set up in there and my tv. I am all set, but this fibro doesn't let me sew like I used to. I miss it.
I have made quite a few quilts in my time, but they are sewing machine quilts. I only hand sew the binding on the edges.
Nice chatting with all you ladies.
Happy sewing and quilting!!
PS Forgot to welcome Terrisews. Welcome aboard !! As you can see there are a lot of us who have fibro and also love sewing, but there are a lot more people on here who are fighting the good fight and will serve as a source of support for you. I, for one, am looking forward to getting to know you.
