My grandmother let me sew on her treadle machine when I was 10 or so. When I went to junior high (7th grade) we could choose sewing or cooking. (I chose sewing. My first project was an apron.) I took sewing as an elective in school, all the way through my freshman year of college.

My mama! Made doll clothes for my Tammy doll, then my 18” doll. In 3rd grade I made a pink cowl collared short sleeved taffeta dress for a piano recital, I swore I would NEVER again work with taffeta! (Sergers were not available then). I have loved to sew forever. I have made my wedding dress, a tent trailer cover, etc, etc. I use a 1968 Elna Super. She has done me good over the years!

My mother taught me. She and her sewing group used to make the muslin drawstring gowns for the babies at Children's Orthopedic Hospital in Seattle.(early 1960's). I learned to sew the straight seams on the gowns, then moved on up from there!

All seeing, knitting, crocheting, embroidery or any crafts I learned from my mom & in school. All other things incl car stuff from my dad. I feel lucky I learned so much. Sadly both are gone now.

Mother sewed most of my clothes, and I remember taking a bit of cut off from some old jeans and making a sleeveless shirt for my little teddy bear. Still have both. No seams in the shirt, used the buttons that were on bears belly to hold it closed, with slits cut in the other side for button holes.

My dad. I was three, and Santa had just brought me a 1914 Singer 20. Dad was an auto upholsterer, so he gave me my first sewing lessons. My mum started me on hand sewing at the same age. ๐Ÿ™‚

My Momma, then I had sewing as an elective in high school!

Older sister, I was 5. Mom could sew or do anything with any kind of needle. For years we used a treadle, I miss doing that. Now I use a hand crank when camping.

I learned in Jr High school. Took several classes in jr and Sr high. My mom told me that I had to learn in school because she didn’t want to teach me. Many years later she admitted that she didn’t know how to sew! ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‰

My grandma taught me when I was ten years old. We made a pull over blouse and I've been sewing ever since.

My mother and grandmother taught me when I was about 12, using a machine very much like the one in the photo, in fact. It was the only way I was going to get new clothes!

For certain it was at least 8th grade in Home Ec. I may have sewn earlier since we had a sewing machine at home.

My grandmother then a friends mother at age 9

Home Ec in 6th grade!

Started sewing in 4-Hg\\

I think I started at school, jh. The teacher was really mean but it didn’t stop my 60 yrs of sewing!

Congratulations beautiful quilt

Thank you! The strawberry/jar row is strawberry jam! My machine doesn't enjoy making letters the way I want, and I was so afraid I'd ruin the row, so I left off the "sugar" and "jam" that should have been on the rows. I really liked that row, it was fun to make!

Congratulations beautifully done

Great quilt Jessica!

That is beautiful Jessica Smiddy!!!!!

pretty
