    Hi there, I hope you no longer consider yourself a novice. I am in Abbotsford BC but have a lot of family on the island. I am what you might call a born again sewing enthusiast. Last fall I attended the Sewing and Craft events in Puyallup WA. Victoria and Abbotsford and was so inspired I bought a new Janome to replace my 40 year old Bernina and then I really went to town and bought a baby lock. So far I haven’t used either of them. Thats what happens when you buy quality in the first place. I’ve just done a replacement duct tape dummy as my old one was too fat. Now I am trying to construct my first pair of pants in decades and making a lot of goofy mistakes. I only remember what to do after I’ve done something badly. You look young enough to be able to wear some of the quickie tops and bottoms I used to make for myself. I’d love to share. I don’t have any sew mates in my family and I haven’t connected to anyone else who is a sewing nut like me. A collector of fabrics (AKA as a “stash”) is what I do best. Most projects in the last few years have been draperies and bedding. I do have the prerequisite sewing nut skills of leaping before I look, planning after the fact and a real talent with my seam ripper. If you haven’t put a club together yet on the island I just wanted you to know I’m here for an encouraging word if you need it.

    You’re very welcome! My Huntsville is not in Ontario, however. It’s in the US, in AL. I’ve only been to Toronto in Canada, actually. I go up to Seattle, WA quite a bit, though, and I always mean to make it up there on that side. Perhaps next time – I hear it’s lovely! Cheers!
