My name is Christine and I am addicted to bag making!
Interests: Now that is a good question! Sewing (surprise surprise!), mainly bags and more bags however I do like making an occasional collector teddy bear (OK so I once did that full time BUT the bags took over! LOL) I also love cats and dogs and all sorts of wonderful critters. COOKING and housework are NOT my favourite pass times however and I would MUCH rather be making a bag! I also enjoy spending time with my wonderful children.....oh and sometimes even hubby too! I like to laugh so I love to watch a good comedy movie and I like to watch some drama, scary and love stories too! Oh what the heck....I like a lot of things!

Typepad HTML Email No worries!
Typepad HTML Email Yes not all corks are created equal! Some are poor quality….price is often a reflection. If it seems cheaper than others, it is probably rubbish. Good quality cork isn’t cheap!!
Typepad HTML Email Hi Lily, some interfacing will help prevent any stretch in the cork but if you want a little bit if extra beef, a layer of light fleece may be a good option…just one layer down the centre of the strap. Hope this helps!
Typepad HTML Email I hope you will share some pics when you are done Gail! 😊
Typepad HTML Email Thanks for stopping by Sandra! 😊

Hello everyone, Today I wanted to share with you something which might be exciting for those of you that are running an online business. As you may or may not know, Email marketing is still one of the best ways to stay in touch with your customers, to help them to get to know you and your products or services. Perhaps surprising to some of you, many people still prefer not to indulge in Social Media but love to keep... Continue reading

Typepad HTML Email The needle size and thread I use is depended on what I am sewing but google is your friend to find out as much info on the topic as you can!
Typepad HTML Email AWESOME! Be sure to send me your feedback and share some pics of your new CWD creations too! 😊
Typepad HTML Email No problems with the machine at all…..its a great machine and I just clean it myself and its self oiling soI just make sure the oil pan has oil.….I have never had it serviced but having said that, for a number of years I barely used it….mainly because of the clutch motor….it was just toooo fast for me. I ended up changing over to a servo motor…best thing I ever did so I have no hesitation in recommending that you get one with a servo motor. I will say though that, like with anything, there is a possibility of a dud….and also going from a domestic to an industrial is a bit of a learning curve but with a little perseverance you won’t regret getting one! Hope this helps!! Christine
