Rosa's Favorite Sewing Links

(Updated: 11 November 2008)


Got too many web pages on the go and too difficult to try and maintain them. Most difficult of all, was trying to add new ones, at the bottom of all my other pages.

I'm hoping it will be easier, this way.


Here's my web page links, along with my "favorite" links.


If you're interested in following my web pages, I would suggest that THIS be the page you save, in your "favorites". *s*
