I wasn’t really sure where this message fits in…I’m brand new here, I’m Ellen, from Annapolis MD…brief intro, have been sewing since I was maybe 12, have been married to dh for 26 years, have three children dd 25 (married with a 10 month old dd of her own!), dd 20 and ds 17.5…all just wonderful children!! Dd #1 and her husband live with us so we get to see our granddaughter all the time! It’s lots of fun.
Dd #2 has been teaching herself to sew, learning by doing and her first project was a log cabin quilt she made for her neice. She then made her sister a tote bag for her b’day, then took apart of old dress of her own and made her neice a little jumpsuit! So cute!
Anyway, both daughters would very much like to learn (continue) to sew. I thought I had read somewhere around here that someone had a curriculum…I’d love to get more information. I know I can teach them, but I’m sure you can empathize because I don’t want to treat them like they know nothing, but also really need to find out where their skill levels lie without insulting their intelligence. You’d think I could figure this out, them being my own daughters! But I would love some guidance. They don’t want to make something that has no use afterwards…which reminds me of my home ec class in 8th grade…of course, the class needed to be geared toward those first learning and since my mother had taught me, the boring jumper I made in the class never got worn!!
Thanks in advance for any guidance!
