Lucille Rox's Profile
My father purchased a child’s metal sewing machine (that chain stitched) for me when I was only 5. I have not been without a sewing machine since that day. I can remember mending my own stuffed toys and doll clothes before I’d even started kindergarten. When books were sold at school, I always looked for books about making dolls and toys of cloth. By second grade, I had a real treadle sewing machine and was making clothing for myself as well as my dolls.
The first items I sold were handmade potholders when I was 6. My brother was the salesman who took them door to door to get orders to match the customer's kitchen colors.
I learned sewing techniques from my mother, 4-H, Home Economics classes in school, and books and magazines. For me, sewing and designing are nearly as important to survival as food…
