Despite 7th grade home-ec classes, a couple 4H ribbons, and even a few sewing classes as an adult.... I was a wreck waiting to happen when you put needle and thread in my hands, or heaven forbid, place a sewing machine in front of me.
My aunt Theresa, however, is amazing. She's a magician with needle and thread. (She even made my wedding dress!) Recently, she surprised me by entrusting me with the beloved Necci sewing machine she's had for the past 20 odd years (I never had one before). She even threw in a crash course to get me on my feet!
Now I'm obsessed.
