So, any other permie-sewers in the forum?
And how do you think clothing production can fit into the larger sense of permaculture/homesteading (or urban homesteading, in my case)?
I would also think in terms of clothing recycling, reconstruction, etc. Throwing the topic out to see your points of view... Cheers!
You will not save money, even if you don't count your time. You can buy cheaper at WalMart or KMart or at thrift stores.
I also knit- and NEVER save money on that...
I'd really like to learn more about sewing. I did a little when I was younger years ago-some more my daughter when she was little, some shirts for a buddy of my brothers, and some for a neighbors little girls. But that was years ago and I've forgotten what little I knew.
I have a sewing machine, I need the re-place the manual which got lost. Mostly I need to learn how to alter patterns.
Any suggestions would be helpful.
