Re: Who first taught you to sew?

My mother taught me to sew as a small child. I remember she taught me to lay my baby doll down on an old newspaper and we would trace around the doll. I then would cut the paper pattern out and lay it on a small scrape of material, pin and then cut it out. She taught me to thread a needle and then showed me how to put the material together to make my doll a new dress. She did this all before I turned the age of 5 when she died suddenly. I will never forget what she taught me and instilled the pride of making something of my very own and that someone else didn't own one just like it. Today I find solace in my sewing room where I can escape to create.
