Love My Granddaughter
I raised sons. Although they loved cooking and we had our kitchen fun, they were too bouncy to want to learn other crafts from my experience. My first home-ec class in junior high had me passionately wanting to learn more, more, more. I stayed with it and in college I majored in Textiles and Design. I sewed nearly everything for my family, and made sewing a part-time career. It was like breathing to me. Having excellent sewing knowledge and skills, I used to teach classes to pass on what I knew. Now, my grown-up granddaughter is showing an interest in learning the skill. I am so very proud of her and happy to share a little of what I know. My first machine so many years ago was also a Brother. I do have to admit these completely computerized models make me appreciate my old basic work horse. ...And the old Brother? It's still going strong ...whenever my sister has mending to do.
