I've always loved "Fair Days"! I have many fond memories of my youth, getting 4-H projects ready and showing horses at the county fair, winning ribbons and prizes for my efforts.
My mother taught my two sisters and I to sew and bake, and I could hardly wait for my own kids to become old enough to spend time together in the sewing room and in the kitchen with me. (Even my son can cook and sew!) Now they're all grown up, and are prize-winning quilters/crafters themselves!
We've had a busy year!
How did you learn to sew?
