    I got Kelsey a little bitty toy Singer sewing machine for her birthday. She loves it but it didn't sew very well, but she did a good job sewing and learned how to sew carefully. (Keep the fingers out of the way of the needle.) So, today I brought home a Janome Sew Mini machine. It's a real machine, with a bobbin just like grandmas. She loves it. Today she started sewing on her first baby doll quilt using my scraps. What fun!!! :D :D :D

    Cute little one! How refreshing to see children learn with pleasure! One can tell that all her attention is to what she is doing. Great picture!

    You are doing a great job Kelsey, and it looks like Grandma is a very good and loving teacher. Make lots of treasured memories together.



    Her Janome is just like the Janome hello kitty I got for my GD to learn on. It runs great and I can interchange the feet with my Janome and it uses the same size bobbins. I love it in fact I am taking it on vacation with me to use. :lol:

    Way to go Kelsey...the first thing that struck me also was her concentration, and just look how careful she is at placing her fingers well away from the needle...great induction taking place here!!

    Would love to see her first creation, please post lots of progress pictures :D
