I used to. We had to learn in grade 7/8 as part of school but I haven't ever really made much besides pillows.
yup! I've made about half of DS's CD stash and a bunch of summer clothes for him recently. Also sewed up some new cushions for the living room and recovered the patio furniture! I've had my machine for a couple of years, but only really started using it around Christmas time - I also got a serger for Christmas.. and i LOVE it!!
I sew during nap times.. when I should be doing housework... oh well!
