    I was blessed with spending lots of time with my Mom before she passed. She was a sewer, not a quilter, but I did learn so much from her. I worked in a dry cleaner/tailor's shop she and my aunt ran and got paid 1 for each button I sewed back onto men's suits and ladies dresses. In those days, the cleaning solutions would ruin some of the fancier buttons, so I got to earn some "big" money! You'll carry your memories of your shared time for the rest of your life. Enjoy! Thanks for sharing.

    Had to join this thread...I grew up with a Mom that could sew a linen outfit, cross-stitch, knit...you name it! I didn't have the patience to hand baste a hem! Fast forward...I'm now teaching my mommy (who lives with me!) to quilt! I'll have her on the long arm (that she helped me obtain...so thankful!) before you know it! Thankful forever for these memories and this chance to be with her...thanks for sharing your story!

    Can you feel the love that this story brought forth? How lucky to still have your Mom with you. My Mom was 91 when she passed, still too soon. I have my Mom's picture over where I work and I can still hear her say, "Are you sure you want to do it that way, why not try this way". I probably will not remember all the things I learned from my Mom but I remember the Love. Hold tight to her and be sure she knows about all the love that is sent to both of you. Thanks for sharing.

    Boy you are so lucky! Hats off to Mom for proving you're never to old to learn something new.
