  20. My mom sewed on an industrial machine for the family business (potholders and baby quilts),. She didn't teach me to sew, but I learned a lot at her elbow, and since I started sewing as a grown up, she's been there with lots of advice and tips! My grandmother told me clothing sewing tips, which I have carefully saved and pulled out when the time came to try.
