    I know no shame !

    My 12 Y.O. daughter came home with a list of after school clubs,
    Sewing club was on the list
    So I had her sign up and ask if I could "observe".
    So I show up at the middle school with my "dressmaker 7000".

    Got an 1-1/2 hour hands on on how to set it up and use it

    Thumbs up

    ... and your daughter will be in therapy for another 12 years!

    Good daddy ... it's our jobs to completely embarrass our daughters on occasion!

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Formerly known as Acercanto, my trail name is MacGuyver to some, and Pucker Factor to others.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness. - Randy Glasbergen

    I bought the used dress maker 6 months ago and could never figure it out, My wife and I have never sewn. So the machine has been sitting in the closet.
    When I saw the school "sewing club", I saw opportunity.
    She was not to embarrassed, as she has been after me to get the machine running, and teach her how to use it, as she has projects for the "pets" she wants to make.

    Now My 8 and 10 y.o. boys ! I keep them in line by threating to show up at their school wearing nothing but a "Speedo"
