I can’t help but share a picture of my 6-year old granddaughter’s first sewing lesson.
Once a week I pick her up from school and she spends the afternoon with me. Last week I asked her if she would want to learn how to sew and she enthusiastically shouted “YES”. Today I introduced her to the sewing machine, stressed safety procedures, and after getting a feel for the machine she stitched without thread on lines that I drew on cardstock. She’s a natural if I do say sew. I then threaded the needle and she stitched out a number of floral and animal designs.
There’s no greater satisfaction than shared interests between a grandma and grandchild. I love it.

Sewing is my passion and I always have a notion to sew, but sometimes I get distracted with other crafty endeavors. I share my creative accomplishments (and sometimes failures) here on my blog. I am a licensed Martha Pullen beginning sewing instructor and serger instructor. For 5 years, I taught new owners how to use their Bernina sewing machines at my local Bernina dealer, and for 2 years I taught serger project classes at my local Baby Lock dealer. These days, my professional time is spent retailing handmade purse and bag making supplies and patterns. I also sell a small selection of fabric as well as my handmade bags and purses.
