    Well, I just purchased an upgrade to Gold Status. But no recognition of such membership exists for me on their dashboard.
    Promises for 3.65 and also for upgrade of 12.00 and no classes as promised.
    Now, when I look further it’s asking for another 20$. Why? I’m feeling ripped off here

    I hand weave fabric and want to know how to properly cut and sew my hand made fabrics. I use wool, cotton, silk to sew. I have heard that hand made fabric acts differently than fabric from the fabric store. It tends to be a bit thicker and unravels even after being washed in the machine after it comes off the loom.

    Do sewing machines make a difference in the finished garment or craft? I’m interested in purchasing a new sewing machine, I’ve been using a basic kenmore for 30 years. How should I go about making a choice?

    patterns are really different now compared to 20 years ago. How do I stay on track when cutting my size when some lines run into each other or follow the same line for a period. It’s really tricky to me

    uTube helped me with putting in an invisible zipper for a floor length gown – it’s saved my sanity. I hadn’t sewn in 30 years & wanted to make a dress for my daughters wedding
