When did you learn how to sew and who taught you?
I went into sewing reluctantly. My parents bought me a sewing machine for my 13th birthday because they wanted me to sew my own clothes. They even made me go to sewing classes. I was so mad because what Jr. High Schooler wants to make her own clothes? I didn't really make any clothes for myself until after I graduated from college and had to pay for everything myself. (Then I became my mother and thought that I could make everything cheaper than what was on the store racks). The funny thing is that I still have that machine nearly 30 years later. And I still use it (along with an industrial machine I bought a couple of years ago and a serger that's probably 20 years old).
I think I made an apron in a home economics class. Again, not because I wanted to, but because I had to.
Your profile page is blank, tell us a little about yourself?
I am a native Southern Californian (one of the few). I did go up to Oregon for college (which may explain why more than a few of the shops who have "heart"ed me are from that state).
