  5. Hi, I'm Marilyn here in WDC..I love to sew: when I initially thought abour getting into sewing it was because I wanted to make my own clothes. but what I have been doing is piecing quilts and making them. I do live to make quilts. But I still can't Sew a straight line and my cutting skill s, well.. I bought a singer simple machine in Oct.2015 model 3232 do you feel this is a great machine or beginner? let me know your thoughts on that.

    I didn't know your hair was blue until about halfway through the video. I love how normal it's becoming to me. Hahaha Alsnyway thank you for making this video! It helped a lot. I had to go back and forth with another one because my bobbin case is front facing. Otherwise I think it's perfect. I can't blame ya for having a different machine, haha. I look forward to watching more!
