I was listening to a lecture from QuiltCon by Mary Fons, when she mentioned that Home Economics is no longer offered in schools today. She went on to say that today's new quilters often don't even have the basic sewing skills that those from my generation take for granted.
My grandmother started teaching me to sew when I was five years old. She helped me make a little pair of shorts and a top one summer. In turn, I taught my daughter to sew when she was young, and though she didn't utilize the skill for years, these days she is my quilting buddy.
Now it is her five year old daughter's turn to learn. Here she is stitching her "I Spy" quilt, and showing off the first finished row.
Are you sharing your sewing knowledge with the younger generation?
How did you learn to sew? I would love to hear.
Happy Sewing ♥
