I have been wanting to learn to sew for years now because I eventually wanted to learn to make my own quilts. I love the beauty and intricacies of them. I learned to knit before I learned to quilt. Knowing how to quilt requires knowing how to use a sewing machine. The hubs purchased a mini-sewing machine for me two Christmases ago but I honestly have no idea how to use it. Plus I'm scared I'm going to sew my fingers onto something. lol. There are sewing classes at our local fabric store but I just have yet to take the plunge. It is definitely fear-fear that I'm going to be horrible at it. When will I overcome that fear? Who knows but it better be soon. I've got a mini sewing machine calling my name!
