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!

Soooo...thinking about the fact I want to do more videos (and who knows, maybe even go live someday! lol) I decided that I am going to try and do a regular (Well I am not sure just how 'regular' regular will be for me but I'll do one when I can!) update video for YouTube. Since I rarely have anything very intelligent to say, I am calling these little videos, "My Ramblings". Would you like to check out my first... Continue reading

Have you tried Lazy Girls Stiff Stuff? It is a sew in similar to Peltex and what I like is that it doesn’t tend to wrinkle and crease like Peltex springs back to perfect shape. Get Outlook for iOS
Typepad HTML Email Glad you found this useful Angela! 😊

Hi Kathleen, You can get the pattern here: and the Video Course (Includes the pattern) here: :)

Hi Susan.....I use compensating feet on my Juki 2010QE and find they work really well. Hope this helps!
Typepad HTML Email Hi….No, no problems with my Zoje. I have recently upgraded from a Clutch motor to a Servo motor though, which is MUCH better. My only regret would be that I didn’t get the servo motor right from the beginning. Other than that, it is a fantastic machine! 😊
Typepad HTML Email Glad you enjoyed it! 😊
