    How many 8 year olds do you know who ask for a sewing machine for their birthday? Well mine did! And she was soooo estatic when she opened her gift to see that her wish came true. How heart warming it was. I bought her a Brothers LX-3215. Simple, sturdy and light weight. She loves it and can't wait to get started. I am taking her to the LQS this weekend to pick out a project. She has helped me with simple quilt blocks on my machine along with my 6 and 11 year old. So she is not a total newbie to sewing.

    I am just so very blessed! Can't wait to get her sewing!!

    How neat! I'll bet she was super thrilled with her birthday gift. What fun you'll have together picking out fabric and a pattern. Your 6-year-old will probably have her big sister making doll clothes for her in no time.

    I'm hoping to teach my DGD's to sew, but it hasn't worked out yet. We're moving soon (this weekend, next week, or the week after...sometime anyway) and I'm pretty sure I'll have a much nicer sewing area once I get it set up. Then, hopefully, they'll be more interested and I'll be more organized and feel more comfortable teaching them.

    Have fun this weekend! :D

    my 10yo dd loves to sew. She has a better eye for putting colors together than I do! My 8yo ds wants to sew too. For Christmas this year the kids are making gifts for each other.....quilted bookmarks, pillows, pj pants.....oh and some soaps.

    Oh and the 8yo is a boy!

    Mine has asked a couple times, but mommy is a little nervous about letting her try. How did you get over the nerves?!?

    That is awesome. My daughter will be 4 in February and she loves to help me pick colors and she does a phenomenal job with it. I am hoping she will enjoy sewing with me as she gets older. So happy your little one is enjoying your hobby with you.
    Hugs
