I don’t know about you but I really want my grand-daughters and grandson (if they wish) to learn how to sew. It does something special in my soul and heart to be able to show them what I do and how they can do it too. A few weeks ago, I taught my eldest grand daughter to knit. Early days yet but she is learning fast…….and is as keen as mustard. She is also very ready to start sewing. I think we will start on sewing some garments for her beloved stuffed lamb (Lammie). She cut out fabric scraps on her last sleepover with me and taped them together with tape. I think it is high time she sewed the pieces together….don’t you agree? Lammie was all decked out with a hoodie, vest and skirt. So the Easter weekend is almost upon us…… In between the requested Easter egg hunt and then eating our discoveries, guess what Nanna will be doing?! No prizes for guessing the correct answer.
Here is a lady from Alberta, Canada, who is real pleased as she recently started teaching her daughter to sew…..this is the very first time that Kathy’s daughter had ever sat at a sewing machine and was so impressed with her Mom’s new Janome 3160, that she now wants to buy one too! I tell you….once we start sewing, it becomes an absorbing passion -right? I have sewed since I was 9 years old and cannot imagine what my life would be like without sewing in one form or another. There is SEW much creativity to get involved with. ………think I will go sew some more right now!
Thanks, Kathy, for sharing this pic with us:
And just look at that cute little pin cushion too! These are available from your local Janome dealer. Ask them to order for you if you don’t see them on the shelf. They come in a range of colours (not just purple polka dot as in the pic above) and fit into the little hole for the extra spool pin.
