    I'm still hoping my little GD will be interested in sewing...her mom never was, but has a great sense of color. Neither of the other two girls sew, either, but the youngest of the three is an artist, and paints for her artistic outlet.

    Yes, I think it could be. My mother did knitting, crochet, embroidery (cross stich, hardanger etc.) and she was very good in sewing clothes. I started knitting when I was 5 years old, my sister as well. I'm sure I was born for some kind of needlework - I only don't know where the passion for quilting came from! I saw the first book about quilts in 1989 when I was 23...

    My Neice is 4 1/2 & so funny in quilt stores now. She picks out material & tells me what I should use in a project. She has her own machine now too without the needle in it. She asked if when she is 5 if she can have the needle put in. It's pretty funny just wait till she finds out about our quilting retreat weekend!! Then we'd be in trouble

    When I was in 4-H, 9 was the age that you started. Sometimes a confident 8 year old could join. My niece was in it a couple of years ago and it was more about putting an outfit together with accessories than the sewing. I'm glad to see young ones interested.

    I also started sewing while in 4-H. I was 9 yrs old and made my first outfit, skirt & blouse. Our 4-H leader was the County Economist or whatever their title is. She taught us cooking and sewing. WE had a great time.
