    Wow ~ Everyone has such wonderful suggestions! As a 1st time college student at the age of 49, I am looking to create a bit of extra income by designing and selling dance workout wear that feels fun & sexy, yet…. Helps us avoid feeling self conscious wearing it : ). I just purchased my first sewing machine and have found it challenging to find fabric & pattern ideas for this style of wear. Suggestions on where to purchase different types of fabric would be helpful and tips with working on workout wear type of fabric would help along with a tips section for the very very beginner sewers.

    I would love to see more projects that showcase projects done with use of a blend of sewing machine, Serger, and Machine Embroidery together.

Simple projects that help us to understand how we can incorporate the special features of each machine in one project would be great and inspiring!
