I mentioned to a coworker that my dd wants a sewing machine so that she can learn to quilt (ok, I've mentioned it to anyone who would sit still and listen over the last two or three weeks since we made the decision because I am so thrilled she wants to do this) and one of them decided to be a craft fairy and brought me a bag of fabric for her yesterday at work even though she had said she would look over Thanksgiving break. It was the best part of a hellish day. And when I let my dd know she is going to be delighted. I am going to let her make a mini dolly quilt for her cousin for Christmas with the fabric...which means at some point I have to fo buy batting and backing fabric (if I don't have a fabric that will work here.

We saw mini children's Singer sewing machines at walmart they are functional but they won't sew anything but cotton and are less likely for small fingers to be caught in and they are in pink and purple.
