Our kids are so busy learning new things with the computers, ipads and newest game that many do not know how to sew, fix a car, saw a board or use a hammer. In school they are enudated with college. Take advance class to get them ahead in college. But in school they do not take the fun classes like shop or home ec.
Tonight my daughter brought home the band uniforms to hem. I got out the sewing machine and measured and started to sew.
She watched me and said, "Where did you learn to do this. My teacher told us to take the uniform to a seamstress, but I did have to worry I knew you have done this before." I told her I learned at school and I was in 4-H.
Now I am not a good seamstress but from years of gaining weight and losing weight I can take in clothes and let them out. But still it is nice to know in our high tech world we still need old fashion skills like sewing.
