Jumpin' on the band wagon


So I did it...I finally decided to jump on the band wagon and learn how to sew. I bought my first ever sewing machine, and I love it. I got the Singer 2932 that comes with 35 built in stitches and a bunch of other really cool features. The best part is, I got it for only 99.00 buckaroos. Yep...it was on sale!!! I will be spending this weekend learning how to run it... Considering that half of my closet contains clothing that I have to alter to fit my short body, I hope you all know what getting a sewing machine means. Finally I will be able to hem up my pants sew down the back cuts of my pencil skirts and hem up the sleeves of my jackets. No more rolling for me:) Wish me luck...because I really have NO idea of what I am doing when it comes to sewing. Thanks mom for helping me pick one out!!!

You'll learn so fast meg, it's a piece of cake, just go slow, step by step. Try a simple pattern first and that will pretty much cover you on all the basics, hemming, zippers, basting, etc. If you need any help let me know, love you

Ok- I tried posting a comment and it wouldn't let me. So, I'll try again. I have a sewing machine that I have only used once. I need to learn how to hem because I have a lot of the same problems that you do with clothes. Good luck with sewing...it's an awesome hobby to have!!
