I Love MAM ~ So Happy Together
Holly, I love to sew but stopped about 10 years ago. My grandfather was a tailor who made his own patterns. Seemed like I was just 4 or 5 years old sitting on the floor in his shop under his cutting table pulling fabric scraps out of his boxes and making clothes for my dolls.

I stopped because clothes have just become so cheap while sewing supplies have gotten so expensive. Also, in my old home I would have to put everything away whenever I got company. So I sold my ancient machine and my hugh cartons of supplies as I really had nowhere to store them.

When I moved here, I bought a new sewing machine to make curtains and what not. It's still in the box unopened after 4 years. Next year I will want to reupholster some things, so it will probably get used then.

Macrame has been enjoying a new popularity again. Maybe it's time to dig out some of that stuff and give it a try.
