Hiya mary! One of the things I am excited about is making the sewing area
into a more cohesive space and hopefully a more cohesive/accessible group of
people as well. I've talked to a lot of people who are intimidated by the
industrial machines. If you want some help getting going on them someone can
usually show you on a Wednesday at SCoW, or if you see me around grab me and
I will give you a quickie lesson! Other Rachel and/or Crutcher would be
happy to show you, too. <3 the intimidatingly fast industrial with automatic
backstitch, it <3s you.
