[Northkeep] sewing day... still trying to catch up

Well, what I've made has not been professional quality, but it's held up
to many washings, so I'm happy. I will say that sewing used to stress me
out so much that when I mentioned I had to make something, the whole
family would abandon me, or at the very least stay out of my way. That
has passed, so I am more comfortable with my limited ability. Nix and
Nadine were both very patient teachers, and really helpful when I got
stuck or scared I'd mess it up. For those of you new to sewing, both
these ladies are very helpful along with many others of our Populace. My
suggestion would be if you see some garb that you like on someone, ask
them about it.

Sorry for the very belated post but I had to
comment on this and I'm way behind on my emails.
I agree with your first reasoning Marta,
however, you have from the very beginning when
you were learning how to sew, given your
abilities a bad review and unjustly so. Don't
let her fool you folks, she's meticulous down to
the last thread being in the right spot.

<SNIP> I wish I would have gone to
needleworker's first,and talked to some of the
populace, because in hindsight, I would have
picked a Norse persona for two reasons. One, the
clothing is cooler in the summer heat and two,
it's extremely easy to make and looks good.
Since I'm not the best seamstress, this would
have been a really good choice for me. However,
I am learning to sew, and if you don't look too
closely at what I make, it looks O.K. Good luck
in your research.
