Sewing holds a big place in my life. Growing up my mom sewed, repaired our clothing. As a teenager, I watched my grandmother darn socks and mended everything of fabric.
I recognize that not long ago, my Great-Great Grandma, perhaps, sewing clothing for the family was a necessity.
We have evolved into a ready-to-wear society.
Raising my girls, I loved to sew boutique clothing for them. I found it creative and rewarding.
I also tried to make Three Muskateer capes one year following a pattern and had my mom not shown up, Halloween would have been ruined. I didn’t understand the terminology. I could not figure it out.
