I would volunteer my time and experience to teach there if the books stimulated interest. Most folks know that I sew what I wear. Jane

Ocrafty1 Ocrafty1 writes: I have worked with kids since I was a Jr. Leader in 4-H more than 40 yrs. ago. I would like to start doing sewing workshops for kids in our area; ideally at our local vocational college. There are only a handful of kids who participare in our 4-H program.

I'm concerned that our favorite craft will be lost for the next generation. I taught my daughters to sew, but they would rather have Mom do it. They no longer teach sewing at our local schools.

I got my elementary when I turned 50 but cannot spend a whole day in the classroom, due to medical issues. I would use these books as inspiration for lesson plans. Being able to teach kids to sew things they' d use would be pure joy.

Andysmom Andysmom writes: I love sewing for children. Now that my son is grown I have started sewing for the three little neighbor children who are all under six. One little tee and shorts I made for the middle boy is so loved he sleeps, eats, plays and goes to preschool in the same set. His mother says he stands and watches until it is done washing and drying so he can put it back on. What better recommendation can I get! Please enter me into the contest.

Susie__E Susie__E writes: I work as an advocate at a domestic and sexual violence services organization. The women and children we see are often traumatized when they come to see us. It is a wonderful thing to see how small acts of kindness can lessen the effects of the abuse. I would use up some of the tons of fabric I have and make things to brighten their day and to let them know that there are people in the world who want them to succeed. And I have two new grandbabies and another on the way to sew for!
