REVIEW: eBluejay

I switched to eBluejay and am happy with it. Read this review from a prominent and trusted seller. There are negative reviews about ALL the selling platforms on any marketplace; but eBluejay gets a bad and undeserved slam.  Enjoy these 2 videos & links: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=w19HybvgHqQ https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8_aWb2O4UrM https://randydreammaker.blogspot.com/2016/04/bonanzacom-vs-ebluejaycom-seller.html

Green Fleece Coat: A.K.A. “Laundry Blues”… McCall’s 9576

  McCall's 9576 2 Hour Reversible Jacket©1998 (2 hours my foot...). ~:^O I made this reversible fleece coat a handful of years ago with a matching reversible hat. My friend really liked it.... she wanted it! Personally, I considered it quite simple and unflattering; but it did keep me warm and machine washed like a… Continue reading Green Fleece Coat: A.K.A. “Laundry Blues”… McCall’s 9576

Mother of the Bride Pink Gown 1987

Seems just like yesterday.  Freddie and I were married in 1987. We were both in our 30's and now in our teens.... (immature...)... I made the gowns for my Mother, my 2 Sisters-in-Law, and beaded my hat (which I regret wearing a hat to this day!). My Mom didn't want me to sew, and we… Continue reading Mother of the Bride Pink Gown 1987

Hot Pad Fun

Easy. I love easy:   I made these for my daughter's Baby Shower; they truly are easier than they look! Im thinking about taking them to sell - but, with some embroidery and/or vintage fabrics. I used 100% cotton fabric and batting, as well as cotton thread. Synthetics should not be used with hot items as… Continue reading Hot Pad Fun

Tour: Zoje Blind Stitch Machine

A blind-stitch hemmer used to well, create blind stitches!.... It's not the best; but for the little I use it, it has done wonderful job on my 84"L lined curtains as well as pant hems, a tweed coat and other things I've made. Since I don't use it often, I was contemplating selling it; but… Continue reading Tour: Zoje Blind Stitch Machine

TOUR: Singer 328K Sewing Machine – Great Britain

Enjoy the mini-Tour! 🙂   This isn't my 'very fave' machine; but it IS great little performer for it's size and light weight. I've sewn 3 heavy wool and fleece coats with this machine, and it performed well through several thicknesses. Although I am looking for a cabinet to set it in; a flatbed won't be… Continue reading TOUR: Singer 328K Sewing Machine – Great Britain

RANT: Bernina Activa Patchwork Edition 230

Love vs hate... I bought this in 2005; I love it and I hate it. I love it because it is a good workhorse. I hate it because when I bought it the machine had issues. I love it because I finally found a Machine Tech who actually knew what he was doing after 12… Continue reading RANT: Bernina Activa Patchwork Edition 230

G’s Checked Coat

I think this was a Simplicity pattern; I made it several years ago and posted it on my old Adrienne's Armoire blog: It really went together easily; especially since my daughter, G needed no pattern adjustments. A beautiful hand washable wool, it really looks quite impressive on her tall and slender build. Alas; she wore… Continue reading G’s Checked Coat
