    Hi Marlo,
    I’ve been wanting to learn how to sew and craft things since I can remember. Thanks to the internet, I’ve been ogling and drooling over all the handmade treasures people create. In June I will finally be graduating college. And since school has always been my “excuse” for not learning to sew, I have to no excuse not to. So, in your many years of experience, do you have any suggestions for me as to how and where I should start. I presume I’d need a sewing machine, right? Do you have any craft books in mind that are easy to follow for beginners to make cute stuff? I’ve seen some books at a local Michael’s or Joann’s but they look outdated. Thanks!

    It’s amazing how we can get involved in so many different crafty projects. I’ve always thought it was bordom and we just can’t let the mind relax. My crafts include water color painting, china painting, chrocheting, and working with fabric. I’ve been sewing all sorts of items for over 30 years. Never really considered selling. However, my new mode is to sell my quilts etc. I’ve joined Etsy and started to look at the various events that have been posted with EtsyRain. I look forward to setting up my new canopy and meeting other sellers and chating about craft world.
    I live 20 miles south of Olympia. Therefore, it will be difficult to meet other Etsys. However, I definetly will try and make one of the bigger events EtsyRain offers.
    Hope to meet many of you soon, Sandra
