I Love to Hand Sew

When I was about 12 years old my Mother sent me to Singer sewing lesson (I was living in Jamaica then).   I used to use my pocket money to buy cloth...because during the Summer holidays there were many of Saturday night chaperoned parties.  I used to love designing and making my own dress.   I have been a sewing since...My Gran daughter (7yrs old) came to visit this Summer and wanted to make her Mother a cushion as a present...She too loves to sew and we made one together.

That's really nice :) I'm just learning how to sew, but I'm enjoying it. It's a good hobby, and it'll be useful for your granddaughter. I appreciate the ability to sew in women, like my mom, who is the one teaching me.
