Hi everyone;
I am in Halifax NS but spent most of my life near London Ontario. I have sewn for many years. I love to sew my own clothes for work and play. I can't keep up with my stash it seems to grow no matter how much I sew. I bought a Babylock Ellure about six months ago and LOVE it. Now I have a new addiction, downloading designs from the web. My next project/challenge with be a maternity prom dress and christening gown for a friend's daughter. None of my friends here sew so I am looking to trade stories with anyone that will listen. Hopefully I can help someone as well.
