It is strange to think that an art I once practiced regularly has become only occasional for me. In fact, the only times I plug in my electric sewing machine are when I want to mend or alter something, or stitch up a doll's dress for my granddaughters. I only know of one or two women who still make their own clothes.
Because fabric and sewing accessories are expensive, off the rack clothing is often less expensive and less time consuming. But I miss honing that skill. My 10 year old granddaughter has asked me to teach her to sew. I think I had better practice before I do. The pinking shears are sharpened and ready!
