  • I love to sew.My mom taught me.i just started to embroider and use very specific pieces to make pictures onto quilt blocks.I also freely draw and use fabric crayons/fabric markers to take an oridinary picture or picture from a coloring book and make my own original piece.It is very satisfying.

  • I use to. Don't have the room or to dedicate to it but I loved doing it. I self-taught and got help from a sewing forum.

  • I taught myself, right now I am currently enrolled in a quilting class and that is going pretty well.

  • I can do some basic stuff. I knew how to use my machine when I bought it from years of watching my grandmother, but I am terrible at following a pattern besides what I envision in my own head. Things like curtains, basic dresses, quilts, etc I can pull off fairly well, but anything real advanced or where there are multiple steps in a clothing pattern, count me out.
