Dear Cuties -- I just had to share with you that I spent the most wonderful afternoon yesterday teaching my 14-year old grand daughter to sew. So nice to "pass on" something I love to her. We were sewing pillow cases, but were really making memories. Such fun - Becky

Oh that is a beautiful dream to teach a granddaughter how to sew! How lovely for both of you! I was able to teach my granddaughter how to make kitty collars on my sewing room and I know I will always treasure those couple of hours! I think she will too!

You are a lucky woman and she will remember this the rest of her life.
Oh, how I long for one to show interest! Of course, they are under 5 months old right now. ;)

What a treasure of a day. I hope you have many many more days of sharing and caring with her.

Thanks lovely. My Mum and school taught me to sew but that doesn't happen much these days. I work with a girl of 22 who throws clothes away or pays someone @ £5 a time to repair hems or sew buttons on!!

How wonderful for you both! My GDs are 2 and 2 1/2 and I can't wait for them to sit at the machine with me. I bring them into the sewing room and let them play with the threads and buttons. Took one to the fabric store while looking for curtain fabric for her room and had her feeling the fabric. Hugs. Nan W

My grandmother taught me to sew, we made dolly clothes. Now I have both hers and my mothers sewing boxes and a huge box of anchor embroidery threads of my late grandfathers. He was taught embroidery when he was recovering from cancer and I have some lovely cushion covers he made
