    That is such a great story!

    My daughter (2 1/2) loves coming to the fabric store with me...she loves all the "pretties" as she calls them, and she already seems to know what she likes and does not like. She too helps me sew and quilt and loves it!! Definitely a future quilter here!

    Just think how much fabric she will have by the time she is 40.

    Neat experience. So sweet. Do you think we are born with the passion? Could it be?
    My daughter has no interest. She took shop instead of home economics. My granddaughter is amazed and very interested in sewing, crochet, needlework, etc.

    My kids always, and still do, shop in my fabric/craft stash. They finally learned that if they want their fingers, they better leave my scissors alone! They are both in college now, and I guess they like their fingers.

    If you would send me a pm, I have a piece of kitten fabric and some scraps of "kittens on the beach" for this little girl. Dotty

    My granddaughter is 9 years old and she was in a fabric store with her step-sister (who is learning to sew at 17) and she was in heaven. My daughter said she was touching all the fabrics and saying what this piece or that piece would look good made up and my daughter told her "you definitely are your grandmother's granddaughter. She is wanting me to teach her to sew, so I think that might be a good project for this summer. I know 9 years isn't too early to start, because I started making doll clothes much earlier than that.

    My 3 yearold Grandaughter loves fabric she picks out a fat quarter each time she goes shopping with me, I think it will make a great scrappy quilt when she get older.

    Just think if the size of stash she will have starting that young, impressive! Can't wait till my DGD is a bit older and can start on loving fabric and quilting/sewing. She's 22 months so getting there!! Love all these cute stories, keep 'em coming ladies and gents.

    When my grand daughter was about 3 she went shopping with me. Crawled up on the shelf on the end of the cutting counter and when Sharon asked her how much she would like of her fabric her answer was "1/4" please". Sharon thought it was so cute. I'm think she was wanting a fat quarter. She and I are the best of buddies and ever since practically day 1 Richelle and grandma add to her fat quarter collection. She loves to sew and uses my featherweight when she is here. She is 8 now. Her sister Josie also loves to sew so I am so lucky. Now the little 2 year old has discovered that she loves fabric also. I am so lucky because my 2 daughters and both daughters in law all quilt and now the little girls are joining us.
