I grew up in Maryland, in the suburbs of Washington, DC. Didn't move too far away, just over the Potomac River to the Leesburg area of northern Virginia. Been here almost 20 years now. 🏠

I've always enjoyed hand-needle crafts, but never thought much about sewing when growing up. I bought my very first sewing/embroidery machine at the age of 40. I had a lot of fun learning and wish I had paid more attention to my mother when I was growing up. Mom is an excellent seamstress! ♥

I have two vintage machines. First up is a 1952 Singer Featherweight 221 that was being sold for repair on eBay. I fixed it up and it now runs smooth and looks great. I love to use it for travel.
|Perfect for piecing and travel.|
I have the Handi Quilter Sweet 16 for my sit-down long-arm quilting. I found this machine on Handi Quilter's HQ Machines for Sale forum. I'm working on my free motion skills with this machine, so I will try to get lots of practice on it.
