About

Grandmom starts sewing and loves it

I wanted to do something more in my semi-retirement than garden. My daughter suggested sewing bags, I think because she wanted one!

Growing up, my own mother sewed everything, coats, dresses, even my wedding gown. She is the true master of the sewing machine, and even now, at 91, continues to crochet.

I did not like sewing. I sewed one dress with the arms too tight and decided never to touch a machine again. Early in our marriage, my husband bought me a machine and it went largely untouched until this year.

And then my daughter suggested sewing bags so I practiced...and practiced. Talk about a learning curve! For someone who hasn't touched my 1970s green Kenmore sewing machine in ages, I found it very enjoyable and haven't looked back. It's been a learning experience, there's so much about sewing and creating I hadn't realized, and even more about selling my bags than I thought!

But I love every minute of it.
