    My 5 year old granddaughter, Gillian is starting to learn to quilt. I got her and Emily a sewing machine a few weeks ago. Their mom is working with them and I think she is doing a super job teaching the girls. So for now they sew with mom and get to sew with me too.

    Jamie said for now Gilli just likes sewing her blocks together and loves cutting the threads :lol:

    OH MY GOSH!! What an awesome job she's doing! I wish I'd have learned quilting that young. She's gonna be a pro before long. How great that you have such good little helpers in your sewing room.

    My munchkin just got some cards with sewing holes in them and some colorful string from nana...she's a fabricaholic in the making and mommy & nana are so proud. Looks like you have a wonderful reason or two to be proud, yourself.

    Oh yes she is very neat about that, they have to lay on her sewing table next to her untill she is all done the she'll toss them in her mom thread catcher. I'm going to make her a thread catcher of her very own, she just loves the one i made for her mommy. :lol:

    I think about it all the time, I think it would be great if all these little ones lived close together, What fun that would be, mom's and granma's on one side children on the other! 3 generations of quilters!! And Maddy is into Hannah Montana too!

    Great job, thats the way to learn when you are young and things just absorb in, not bounce off like when you get older :lol:

    PamH,
    she just turned 3 and loves spending time in mommy's room, helping out. I have an L shaped work area so she's always right there, on her bar stool playing along with me. It won't be long and I'll be sharing the stash....I can't wait!

    She is so proud of what she made. She is so cute. I started sewing at about 12, but didn't start my quilting until I was an old lady. Just think of all the things she will be able to do.

    Do you think she might make some of my wish list for me?
