    Peace.

    Does anyone here sew and/or make their own clothes? And I'm not talking about folks who made an apron or a skirt in high school and never touched a machine again....

    I sew. I love to sew. I already have a small side gig going for years.

    I was just wondering if anyone loves sewing like I do. It'd be nice to build with some like minded people...

    Probably about twenty years or so, but it's off and on... I'm by no means an expert and do it mainly as a hobby

    That is wonderful! Great Thread! Great Idea! ... :toast1:

    It is always good to commune with those of like mind ... yep ... shole is ... :chair:

    What type of things do you make ... clothes ... for men, women, and children ... ??

    Have you ever featured and/or sold your work online? That would be pretty kewl.

    My Mother had a friend that was a tailor and he was great ... Albert was his name.

    He useta make my Mother suits and stuff ... he even made me something, inspiring.

    I went to school with his daughter ... her name is Keri ... good times ... :love:

    I'd imagine with the Internet ... more, better, different opportunities are presented.

    Have you done much of that Sister ... online selling of your work?

    Love You!

    :heart:
