I'm asked often where I learned to sew and be so creative. I've thought about that question many times and my answer is simply the women who were in my life as a young girl. My mother sewed, crocheted, did embroidery work, along with many other things. I remember as a young girl watching my grandmother sit at her treadle sewing machine, her feet just pumping away. I was mesmerized watching her sew. And she also crocheted and embroidered countless pillowcases. And I remember my other grandmother, as she taught me to hem a skirt, telling me "If you can't do it right, then don't do it at all. Do it right the first time and you won't have to rip it out."
So I suppose watching and learning from these women was a great influence for me. And then there was high school Home Economics and the beautiful purple dress with matching choker I made!
I have always loved sewing and crafting in many forms and feel very blessed to be able to share some of that with you.
Thank you for sharing in my journey.
