Forty-eight years old, living in Melbourne, Australia. Mother of two daughters (aged thirteen and nine years), wife, and part-time health professional. I started my blog back in 2007 as an online journal to document and share my sewing and crochet – and anything else that I feel like including. I’m not a “blogger” – I’m a sewer who blogs. Mum gave me access to her sewing machine as a child and I started with doll’s clothes, and once in my teens I sewed many of my own clothes. I learned to sew by following the instructions in the McCalls/Simplicity/Butterick etc patterns, and always had Mum to help our when needed. My 21st birthday present was my own sewing machine. Now that I have a dedicated sewing space I sew as often as I can find the opportunity.

Their email addresses or web pages are usually included. If you do a google search for Pinnock sewing machine manuals you may be able to find some to buy online. My Pinnock is an Exclusiv Plus from around 1989 and I am usually not able to help you out, sorry!
