    I really don't have any young ones around to teach but I certainly would if given the opportunity!

    Last summer I got the opportunity to introduce my best friend's daughter to sewing. She saw me working at my machine and kept going, "Emma help!". So, I let her help and she was actually pretty good at matching pieces right sides together, even at 2!

    My daughter showed enough interest to sew a straight seam when she was younger; that was about it! My granddaughters are pretty young and seem interested in what I am doing, especially with the sewing machine. I think they are too involved in other activities right now to be serious about learning how to sew/quilt.

    I helped my son when he took a sewing class in middle school (Jr High). He can do basics and can hand sew which is more than his wife can do. I have offered to teach her. She let me help her hem a pair of jeans but that is all so far.

    My grandkids live about 4 hrs (no traffic) away from us so we don't get to see them very often. I always have hand projects on the travel down to see them -- I also work on the projects as we relax and sit and watch TV. The 3 of them (2 girls 1 boy) are always "grandma - can I try"? absolutely - and I let them put their hand in my projects. When my oldest had surgery last year, I stayed with the other 2 while parents were at hospital with her. The other 2 got to help with my sewing machine - they each made a project and I love watching their faces and the smiles when they realize "I DID THAT".

    My daughter once took a sewing class when she was about 11. It was a good experience. I was not sewing much at the time, but helped her a little with some basic things as in how to thread a sewing machine. It was the only clothing she ever made...a jumpsuit type thing with her favorite thing on it....cats. She actually wore it some.

    Unfortunately I don't have any little people in my life. For a year or so I "borrowed" one of my besties granddaughter twice a month. We LOVED having her! She just turned 3 and moved away a couple of months ago. I still have my fingers crossed that my son and DIL will have a baby one of these days. They are both in college full time and don't think now is the right time. Duh! It's always the right time for a baby I say!!
