    first time to visit here

    hello
    i am a first time visitor. i am just learning to sew on an old machine that belonged to my mother.
    i am single, never married, guess that makes me an old maid. i am a disabled former factory worker.
    hoping to find some hints and tips on how to make something very simple.

    Welcome from Colorado! The tutorials here are fabulous - and the quilters here are super helpful. I'm always inspired by their ideas.
    What type of sewing machine do you have?

      it is an old kenmore. I don't know what model but it is a tabletop ? In that it does not have a cabinet but sits on top of my kitchen table. It does not have any fancy stitches. Just straight and a zig zag. I remember my mother using this when I was a little girl and I am in my 30's now. I only know how to sew a straight line and I am thinking that is okay for making small projects. thank you.

          Welcome! I learned on my Mom's old Kenmore and wish that I had it now. It had all metal parts and was a workhorse that never stopped (although you could get a hernia picking it up - LOL). You will love it here and learn so much.

          PS - 30's and never married is not an 'old maid' - just a wise selective gal waiting for the absolute right person to share with.

            Welcome Wise!
            Hope you come back soon and visit! Don't worry about being an old maid! For goodness sakes, I didn't meet the love of my life until I was 45! Believe me, he was worth the wait.
            Watch the tuts along with us and learn with us.
