Learn to Sew in the Comfort of Your Own Home


My grandmother was a professional seamstress.  Every Sunday when we would visit her, I would make my way down to her basement where she had two huge professional sewing machines set up in her basement.  There my mother and her would sit for hours sewing coat linings.  I use to love it when she would give me the opportunity to sit and run material through the machines.  It gave me sense of accomplishment.

Every Halloween she and my mother use to make our costumes.  They even made our class play costumes for school.  We always had the best costumes in the classroom, at least I always thought so.  My prettiest costume was a ballerina costume she made for my sister and I.  She made me a flapper costume one year as well.  I think that one was my very favorite.  It was red satin with tulle.  She even made me a red tulle hair piece with a beautiful red rose in it.

As I got older I never lost my passion for making things.  I took a sewing class in grammar school once and was the only person in my class to complete their project.  It was an apron that I made for my grandmother.  It was so pretty.  I remember it as if I made it yesterday.  It was white with pretty flowers on it and had pleats and a big pocket.   She loved that apron and wore it all of the time.

Sewing is so relaxing and there are so many great things you can do with the knowledge of sewing.  You can make you own clothing, make curtains, cushion covers and pillows for your home, make beautiful blankets and crafts and so much more.  You can even hem and repair your clothing and items in your home.  Hey, if you get good enough, you can even start a side job!

  1. I'm definitely not great at sewing. I can thread a needle and make minor repairs, lol. I need better sewing skills.
