     Hello again, I thought this was a good time to bring you up to date on our sewing adventures; my friend Lynne is sewing costumes with me.It's great to have someone to work with and we enjoy each others company. 

     Like so many other costumers sewing at home, I have been happily using a generic folding table as a cutting surface as welll as a sewing/serging table. I felt it was a step-up from either the kitchen table, coffee table or floor that had previously been comandeered for projects. Even still, with a little help from my partner, we were able to make some table leg extentions to raise it up to commercial counter height; I also have a taller set that lifts the table to a comfortable cutting height. Wonderful and so much easier on my back.
