Re: Who first taught you to sew?

When I was really young around 6 or so I went to my aunt's house. She made two tops for my little sister and I. She used no pattern and both tops fit well. It took her less than an hour or so. I was absolutly hooked! I tried to sew doll clothes till I was 11. I was staying at my married sister's house and she taught me how to sew clothes for myself. I have been sewing since then. I am now in my 50's and have found a resurgance in my sewing interest. I spend all my extra time at one of my 3 machines, an old Singer 774, a serger, and a Pfaff 2134 embroidery/sewing machine. What a joy to be able to have the time and the equipment to do whatever I wish. Truly Blessed!
