I think I would like to learn to sew

Flower arranging is too expensive of a hobby; if I knitted I would only knit scarves and everyone already has enough scarves; I stare at a computer screen all day so I'd like to put InDesign and Illustrator off to the future.

But if I sewed, I could make simple, streamlined, Parisienne-esque clothes. Skirts and tops and dresses and such.

What are the next steps?

A sewing class at Brooklyn General or Purl Soho and a sewing machine, of course. Then a trip to Philadelphia's famous "fabric row" with Lizzy, Tori and me!

I have the sewing machine - you may have it - relatively new, never used by me. Just share it with Shelby if she wants to take up sewing, too.

Sewing classes - good - but learn to construct things without a pattern, too. A dress dummy would be a good investment.

A good pattern. Amandas would work on their sewing with yous, if you want a sewing palsie.
