Re: Who first taught you to sew?

My Mom and Grandmother both sewed. I "helped" grandma with her tredle machine by moving the tredle. Mom always gave me scraps of fabrics to play with and I made clothes for my dolls. When mom got her new Singer sewing machine, she taught me how to use it. In fourth and fifth grade I started sewing my own clothes and by high school did prom dresses for others, but mom still made my prom and dance dresses, lol. Now I own a fabric shop and have been teaching sewing for more than 30 years!
