I enjoy quilting. I don't really enjoy other kinds of sewing. In fact, I find many other kinds of sewing stressful! But quilting, that I like. My philosophy follows along these lines of the book, How Not to Make an Prize-Winning Quilt, though. My grandmother gave me this book a couple of years ago, and it belonged to her mother! Anyway, this wasn't supposed to be about me!
Avalyn wanted to learn to sew. I decided to get a book for her to work through as I wanted to have some structure to what she was going to be doing. Learning to Sew: Kids My First Sewing Machine Book looked like a good choice. It provides information on sewing machines and gives a little quiz on the parts of the sewing machine. Then it has exercises for learning to sew straight lines and curved lines on paper! I never thought of that idea! Avalyn doesn't need to use fabric or even thread to practice! She is still working on the paper exercises, but is learning how to use my sewing machine.
