    Default Hi from Illinois

    Hello all,

    I'm fairly new to Designs by Sick. I've been around for a couple of weeks.

    I live in Rockford, Illinois which is northeast of Chicago near the Wisconsin border. We're actually a little closer to Madison, WI than Chicago.

    I've been sewing around 55 years having started on my grand mother's treadle machine. I've sewn everything from wedding gowns to airline seats. I currently do craft shows selling upcycled, repurposed, refashioned items, mainly from denim.

    This week my grandkids will be in from Atlanta. I'm making the three girls skirts from denim jeans. I cut the top part of the jeans off (the waist area) and add ruffles. Hoping to embroider t-shirts to go with them. For my grandson, I'm making a messenger bag from his dad's jeans (he passed away a couple of years ago).

    That's a little about me. Hope to chat with some of you on the site.
