Re: Who first taught you to sew?

Both my mother and grandmother taught me to sew. My mother, who is left handed, would show me one way and my grandmother, who was right handed would show me what looked to be another way. I adjusted when necessary and had my own hybrid way of doing things. Since both of them had different areas of expertise, I got the best of both worlds. I still get calls from my mother telling me about the latest presser foot for my machine or a new fabric line that is out!
