What inspird me to sew? Survival. All of our clothes were made at home - fabric from the Sears catalog. (Yes I have been around awhile). 4-H was a huge part of my life. I wants to win grand champion for sewing but was always beat out by the same person. Competition made me better with the sewing machine.ReplyDelete
My aunt did needlework and she would give me scraps. I love gridded paper, 1" grid back in the 1950s, and I drew geometric designs. 9 patch was my first patchwork project and then I tried triangles. There were NO quilts in my family except the heavy ones made from men's suits and tied with red yarn. We didn't have heat in the bedrooms so we needed the warmth they provided in the winter.ReplyDelete

I had a neighborhood sewing shop when I was nine years old. I asked if I could wash their counters for them which I then started doing. PRETTY SOON THEY TAUGHT ME HOW TO SEW. They also sold Bernina sewing machines, with which I have a lifelong affinifty For! But my favorite thing has always been fabric! l.samlow@COMCAST.BETReplyDelete
Mod fabric in the 60's. I wanted to play with the riotous colors and huge paisleys.ReplyDelete
