Re: Who first taught you to sew?

My Mom couldn't sew a button on a shirt! I learned to sew in high school home-ec class, I was 14. My teacher was Ms. Isabelle Swan and we, of course, called her "Old Lady Swan". She was so tough! I hated her then for it, but because of her absolute insistance on everything being perfect, I learned how to sew very well. I have earned a lot of money over the years, and when I had my sewing business several years ago. I have been sewing now for about 40 years and still love it. By the way, my first item was a little jumpsuit for my baby brother(1 year old at the time). I bet I ripped that thing out at least 10 times to make it perfect. He passed away a couple of years ago, and this was a nice memory. He always was who I thought of first, even when I was in high school.
