I'm 51 but have taught three "girls" at work to sew/quilt who are all 38. I bring in a lot of hand quilting to do on break and lunch and they wanted to learn. One of them is great, just did a queen size quilt by hand, took her about a year, and we tied it. She just bought a machine and said the next one will be machine stitched lol.

36..obviously experience is everything. Those of you in your golden years are masters and I'm in awe of you.
