Hi!

My name is Anabelle Delgado, I’ve worked in the pharmaceutical industry for 20+ years.  I studied Chemistry and started my career as a scientist, but after a few years I started to support the implementation of computer systems.  In regulated industries there is a many regulations needed when implementing these systems and I’ve been working with that for a long time.

I married my high school sweetheart 20 years ago and we enjoy to travel.  We are busy driving our kids around to their activities – We have 4 kids: My oldest son is 17, he got in UMass Lowell (Biology major)) for next fall and enjoys musical theater.  My two girls are 14 and 12.  The 14 years old is a Level 8 gymnast and the 12 years old  enjoy skiing and plays saxophone in the school band.  My youngest son is 10 and he is also a level 8 gymnast.  I’m very proud of all of them!

When I was a kid I was always drawing and designing dresses (I still keep these drawings). I took an embroidery class when I was 10, a basic sewing class when I was 12, and after I graduated college I took a fashion design course. Once I got married and had kids I didn’t have much time for sewing.

I got into sewing again because my son had to make a stuffed gorilla for school and he asked me to sew it.  I took out an old singer machine and he chose the materials at my local Joann’s Fabrics, downloaded a pattern that I found online, and my sewing hobby reborn.

I bought a Brother CS6000i Sewing Machine at Amazon (an entry level – very good machine, I highly recommend it for beginners or if your kid wants to learn how to sew) and my first project was a knit shirt (yes… I started with knit fabrics).  I had little experience sewing and it was my first experience sewing with knits. I read a few tutorials online and I was very proud of my shirt! I made it based on another shirt that I had and the fit was perfect.

Then I start reading Indie blogs and buying some of their patterns. I made probably 5 On Safari Skirts! Debby Cole (the original owner of Sew So Easy) teaches how to sew this skirt with flat felled seams and front zipper fly fastening.

I also sew her Tiered and Gathered Summer Skirt.

My second purchase was a Serger. The serger was a great acquisition to sew knits and for finishings.

I continue my learning process sewing Sewaholic Granville button down shirt, Grainline Studio Alder Dress and some others!

The first bag that I sew was the Conference Bag (also from Debby Cole) and I haven’t stop making bags ever since.  I also enjoy sewing Swoon and Sew Sweetness bag patterns.

Craftsy has been my main source to learn pretty much anything sewing related.

Recently I bought a Sailrite  which is a heavy duty sewing machine to sew bags – it is probably too strong, my next one will probably be a Juki 8700 🙂

I have a sewing studio in my basement and enjoy sewing. In this blog I share free patterns and resources that I find online and I also share my projects.

I have an Etsy Store where I sell nylon metallic zippers by the yard. These zippers are great for bags and exposed zippers in garments!
