Thanks for the responses everyone!
I am actually looking for a new sewing machine, mine doesn't work properly and even if I were to get it fixed, it's too small to handle some of the things I want to do with it.
I was in Girl Scouts when I was little, but it wasn't the same. We didn't really learn actual survival skills. Instead, we made teddy bears and talked about hair care. It was a huge disappointment and I didn't stay around very long. But my brother was in Boy Scouts, I'll see if he has any books still.
So here's my question for everyone: If I wanted to be ready for a disaster that caused a power outage for an extended amount of time, what would I need to do? What kind of things would I need to consider? What do you think would happen?
