Which is 30-mumble years for me. I'm plus sized, and since I can rarely find anything I like in my size for a price I care to pay for it, I made a lot of my clothes. I made my own wedding dress 14 years ago. I like meeting up with other sew-enthusiasts, especially since I recently inherited a Bernina sewing machine from my aunt's estate. My aunt was a quilter and had a house full of quilting supplies and fabric, and I've got some from her stash plus my own stash...my sewing area looks like an explosion in a fabric shop right now.
A Bernina and a fabric stash. How lucky are you! Welcome, to our community!
