I have a young person (he's 5) who comes to visit me every now and then, the son of one of my employees. Evan. He's such a character, and his grandma does machine embroidery for a living. She does all of our company shirts, hats, etc.
He was looking at my quilting frame yesterday, and said, "what is this???"
I explained that it was a quilting frame, that I was making a quilt for my son, blah, blah.
He said, "How are you sewing it? I mean, where is the machine???"
I held up my needle and thread. His eyes got BIG! He said, "Isn't that, like, the OLD FASHIONED WAY??? Why would you want to do it like THAT?"
Bad part is, I couldn't think of an answer. Cause I like it, and really find it relaxing? Because if no one keeps up the old skills, pretty soon no one will know how to do it? Because my Mama did it?
He just looked at me like I was some sort of lunatic, and left.
