ReplyDeleteMy nanny taught me the basics of how to sew when I was very small. Since then, I've been slowly teaching myself! It's been slow going, and I miss having her around.

ReplyDeleteMy mum taught me the basics of hand and machine sewing and embroidery when I was little and I've been teaching myself harder techniques ever since.

ReplyDeleteMy mother taught me to sew! Now I'm teaching others!

ReplyDeleteMy mum taught me how to sew, and I self taught on the sewing machine. Thanks for the chance!

ReplyDeleteI'm pretty much self taught at sewing, although my nan taught me to knit and my stepmum continued to assist. She (my stepmum) let me use her sewing machine when I was about 9 and I was away!

ReplyDeleteHello ! How nice to meet you and your wonderful blog!!!

ReplyDeleteMy mother thaught me how to use the sewing machine, but I learned how to quilt by myself with the help of a few books and the internet!

ReplyDeleteMy 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.

ReplyDeleteMy Granny instilled a love for sewing in me, but I taught myself.

A mean teacher "taught" me to sew in Home Ec in school. I hated it and didn't sew again for 15 years. I'm now happily quilting, sewing clothes and knitting, so I would say self-taught.

ReplyDeleteMy mom, she was a wonderful seamstress.

ReplyDeleteI liked you FB page.

ReplyDeleteI am sure my mom taught when I was younger, then some family friends as I got older and in between I kind of figured it out as I went along. Now I am just gobbling up online courses to help me hone my skill.

ReplyDeleteMy mom taught me how to hand sew, and a class in junior high introduced me to the sewing machine (and then my mom helped). But since then I've been self-taught. Thanks for the chance to win. I'd love to make up that pattern!

ReplyDeleteLearned how to sew clothes from my mom, and taught myself quilting just recently!

ReplyDeleteI learned to sew in Home Ec. classes at school, and I learned to quilt through lessons at quilt stores.

ReplyDeleteMy Mom taught me to sew at an early age. In fact I made my first 9 patch quilt at age 10 (in 1962) with the help of my mom. Dad made the frame and the whole family quilted, including my 2 older brothers. I still have the quilt. Great memories.

ReplyDeleteSelf taught.

ReplyDeleteMy mom probably let me on her first electric sewing machine after she quit sewing through her finger, but my first lessons were making an apron and hemming a dishtowel as a 10-year-old in 4-H. For the most part I'm self taught, but I have taken some wonderful classes from folks like Ruth McDowell and Michael James and others.

I went to a quilting shop and asked to sign up to learn the basics of making a quilt.Then, I make a black and white cat quilt and did it my way. I entered the cat quilt in a fair and the quilt took lst prize. The cat quilt is still with me and was made in honor of my cat who has since passed away. Thank you for being a part of the Sew Mama Sew Giveaway and giving me the chance to win.
