Congratulations to Erika and Joyce, who are both getting a $25 gift certificate for submitting questions to "What do you want to know?" Joyce wanted to know how to start sewing with an old machine and Erika asked about buying a new one. So I gave my two bits here. I tried to cover how you would start sewing if you never have and that includes using an old hand-me-down machine or buying a new one. Hopefully, it answers your burning questions as a beginning sewer. If not, submit your own question.
And my apologies. I said I would cover two WDYWTK's (What do you want to know?) a month, but I've covered two in two months. I am starting to draft a couple of others and I will do better. What have I been doing? Not cleaning, clearly.
