Ok, you crafty types out there, let me ask your opinion. More than a little inspired by posts like SouleMama's before-dinner skirts and the slightly cooler air blowing into town, I have started to get the sewing bug. One problem is that I don't have a machine. Another is that I haven't sewn anything from a pattern since high school home ec class and I certainly don't remember anything from that!
So what's a girl to do? Should I get a machine? Which one?
Should I take a class or can I figure it out on my own? The classes seem a bit ... expensive and the projects don't look like anything I would want to make.
How did you learn to sew? What are your favorite learning-to-sew sites? Any great free beginners tutorials you know of? What has helped you the most?
Please dear Internet friends, give me all the answers I seek...
