I'm an older sewer (68) and have sewn everything from diapers to wedding dresses, even mens suits. I love to sew and do ceramics. I have 6 kids, and made all of their clothes while they were growing up. (They couldn't wait to get a job so they could buy a non-home made dress.) I now have 15 grand-children, and 8 great-grand children. Have made many things for all these kids. My husband got sick so I had to put away most of my sewing and crafts for years, but now he is better and I can do a few things. Sure missed it. Have enjoyed this site very much. I will continue to do so....
