When my kids were little I taught them at a young age to learn to sew. They all started out simple learning how to darn a sock. As they improved they moved onto bigger things and it was so exciting to teach them about the world of sewing.
I had much more time to do it all back then when I only had a few children but I loved every minute of it. For me, sewing is like therapy. It forces you to slow down, to get into a rhythm and forget all that is going on around you.
We’ve sewn all kinds of things in our home–from Christmas decorations to regency gowns to everyday skirts. It has been a fun journey
