  • New Member Introduction

    Hi,

    I'm Dale (a female Dale) from Santa Barbara, CA (USA). I was raised by my grandmother who was a tailor, so sewing has always been part of my life - but mainly garment sewing. Recently, however, my interest in soft furnishings and curtains has increased resulting from numerous moves combined with the high cost of such furnishings.

    Two years ago, I opened a small business (http://www.thesewingparlour.com) mainly dedicated to teaching sewing - again with a garment emphasis. With the current economic situation I started including alterations. I have had numerous requests for making pillows, making curtains, shortening curtains, etc. and am becoming more and more interested in the various techniques since I have no formal training - just continually read as much as I can and keep trying out new methods.

    I found this forum via YouTube - I just ordered a blind stitch machine and viewed the instructional video provided by "schuhby". I am looking forward to learning a lot from this forum and being able to participate in the discussions, etc.

    Thanks for including me!

    -Dale

          Hi Dale,

          How fab to be able to tailor properly! I'm sure learning at Grandma's knee would have been a great way to do it.

          Good luck with your business. I hope it's a great success. Now I know who to come to when I foolishly take on another bridesmaids dress to make or alter..... lol!
