I have been wanting to learn to sew for a long time. I used to help my Mom & Grandmother when I was very young. After my Mom passed away in June 2011, I've had a renewed interest, I now understand why my Mother had so much fabric even if she didn't have anything in mind to sew. I'd nag her about what she was gonna do with it. Well, I get it Mom... as My fabric collection grows and grows.
