Birmingham, AL

My grandma gave me her sewing kit in an old fruitcake tin. 13 years, a lot of band-aids over fingertips, and more than a dozen failed attempts later, I can successfully sew almost anything by hand. And no, I have no interest in the machine that has stayed in it's box since my many failed attempts at sewing a simple straight line (let's not talk about the 2 hours and a fork to thread the thing).
