    I got one of those Hello Kitty Janome sewing machines to teach my granddaughters how to sew. We are having alot of doing this together. In fact the GD have made a schedule out to who stays at grandmas to get to sew that week-end. LOL

    Emily our oldest GD is seven, next is Gillian who is 4, and Payton who is three.

    What fun!! Thats actually a very nice size machine. I'm surprised, from the pics I've seen of them on various web sites, I thought the Hello Kitty machines were much smaller. You all will have so much fun! I think its just too cute that they've scheduled their weekends :) What a wonderful Grandma you are!!! Talk about creating memories!! Just so neat!!

    That's great! you have certainly planted the seed, Grandma. Just think, you'll always have partners for fabric shopping day. Grandmas are the bomb, as my oldest gr. daughter likes to say. :)

    Pam,
    That is a great way to bound w/ grandma. I learned to quilt by using my great grandmas threadle machine. The pictures brought back fond memories of her and I at the machine. Lucky girls!!!
    Have a great time you and the girls.

    Pam, I really enjoyed seeing your pictures and your lovely grandchildren! It brought back memories of my oldest daughter (now 34). When she was just a little thing, 2 1/2 or so, we made a tiny quilt together. I did most of the fabric moving through the machine, etc and the finished project isn't much to look at but it was such fun! I still have it, I'm sure she has forgotton all about it and plan to give it to her at an appropriate time!

    lucky for all of you I remember spending weekends at my grandma's,but she would never let me touch her machine! hands off. what fun was that. when my daughters where young I bought them a little singer but it never worked, it was more like a toy.
    they never really wanted to learn. They say it is an every generation thing. now I am paying tons of money for my one daughter to learn how . She goes to Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC. go figure.
    Can't wait till I have gradchildren, so I can teach them, I need a second chance.

    Thanks everyone for all the lovely thoughts. I look forward to getting to sew with them as much as they do. They are all so full of energy and make it exciting to see the joy in their faces. It's a simple gift to give them and we both get so much from it. :wink:

    3incollege, you're going to be the "bomb" grandma too! Your grandkids will adore sewing with you. Especially since you know how much it will mean to them!

    Your grandchildren will have wonderful memories of quilting with Grandma. I know I have those memories and they are so precious to me.

    What a fortunate Grandma you are that your sweeties want to learn to sew. I envy you. I have three grown daughters, and four grown granddaughters, and I never had the "sewing" connection with any of them. I did give a sewing machine to my 18 year-old granddaughter last year when she was visiting and mentioned she had taken a sewing class in high school, but had no machine. I guess she will be my last hope!

    What a great way to spend a weekend! They will each treasure the time with you as much as you will treasure the time with each of them. Thanks you for teaching them a "life skill" that they can enjoy for the rest of their lives. They are such pretty girls.
