Vintage Sewing

New Member Intro

Bartacking? FBA? Blind hem? Tucks? Box pleats?–These are all new to my vocabulary. My name is Andrea and I am pretty new to the sewing world. I am teaching myself to sew and I love learning how to do new techniques. I recently purchased a Pfaff Hobbylock for $50 and I absolutely love sewing with it. I also own a 1980’s Kenmore Ultra Stitch 6 that was given to me years ago. I like to sew whenever I have time. I have 3 kids-one in college this fall and the other 2 I home school, so I don’t have much “spare” time. I love seeing all the completed projects on Sew Retro and it inspires me to tackle new projects myself. You can see some of the things I am working on at
