I have been sewing for about 60 yrs. I started sew by hand at the age of 6 and moved up to a sewing machine my mother had. It did one thing sewed straight. My how things have changes in the last 60 yrs. I also love to paint- water colors, oils, acrylic-anything and everything. I can not ever have enought time to do everything that I want to do. There is always something more to learn.
