Hi Margaret,

Welcome. Boy, you've got your hands full. If you find time to sew you must be one heck of a time manager!

Good luck and help is here, believe me!

Hi Margaret,

I am new too. I've only been sewing for less than a year, but I checked all the sewing books out of the library and read them when the kids went to bed. I learned so much that way!
BTW, by the time my 2 kids go to bed, I'm exhasuted! Good luck to you, and enjoy the sewing process.
