Michael Miller Mondays and a Sneak Peek
I have been sewing since I was about 12 - decades! Garments. Home dec. Kids' clothes. Even altered my husband's clothes (ie, suits - yikes!) And, yes - I even sewed my wedding dress (but that's because I was living in Africa and that was about the only way I could wear a traditional dress!)
But, I am a Minky virgin! Never sewed with it other than putting two pieces together and stitching them up into a doll quilt.
|First Minky adventure|
I'm nervous but ready to take on my next sewing adventure. Michael Miller invited me to play with their latest Minky fabrics and this is making me sweat some bullets! This stuff is so - FLUFFY!

And stretchy and thick, but OH SO SOFT! Yes, I sewed a lot of polyester in the 60s and 70s. That was just about all we had. This is 100% polyester, so I have to put a different hat on and approach it from a very different angle than the 100% cottons I've been sewing and quilting with for the past 35 years!
