I just got home from my grand daughters birthday party. She is five. She has spent two years sitting beside me and watching me sew. I got her a small chain stitch machine so she can get the feel of sewing with me. What a hit it was. It was the first toy she opened when we got home and spent 30 minutes sewing on it. Then she set it next to my Juki sewing machine and compared the parts to make sure it was just like grandmas machine. It made my day.

I got my sewing machine!!!!

First time sewing on her own.

She is going to be your best little quilter buddy.

I got my granddaughters a Hello Kittty Janome sewing machine to keep at my house. They love sewing on it and it is fun working in the sewing room with them.

Have a lot of fun making good memories with your little sweetie.

Very, very cool! One of my gal pals has twins, turning 5 next month. (I posted pics of them in their Chinese New Year dresses) Anyway, she's getting them sewing machines for their birthday. I hope they love theirs as much as your grand daughter loves hers!

What a great way to foster a love of sewing--it all starts out with PLAY. (It doesn't become work until much later!)
