My beautiful Mum started teaching me to sew as soon as my feet could reach the foot peddle on Mums old Treadle singer sewing machine. I enjoy sewing... and learning new crafts - I also have an embroidery machine and an embellishing (felting) machine...both of which are recent additions to my craft room....and now I have to find the time to make use of them.
