    I teach beginning sewers of all ages. It is a great feeling to give them a skill they can use all through their life.

  2. My sister. I recently gave her one of my machines so she could try sewing. This book would make a great Christmas present for her.

    I gave my daughter her first sewing machine and taught her the very basics. She has grown to be an amazing and creative sewer than I could ever have have imagined and now she has a daughter of her own to pass her skills on to! So to answer the question my grand-daughter will be the newest sewer in our clan! So this book would be for her!

    I have at least 20 beginning sewers in my life this year – I love to pass my passion for sewing on to others so I teach sewing to children and adults. It’s sew much fun!

  11. Erika says:

    I would consider myself a beginner (again) sewist with good strides to become an expert someday. Or at least I will pretend that I am. :)

  12. Natalya Hoak says:

    Yes, I do…me! I’ve hand sewn a number of things, but am finally getting a sewing machine this year. It won’t really change my projects except I’ll be able to “crank” them out faster :)

  13. Cindy Keller says:

    My soon to be 7 year old granddaughter has sat on my knee while sewing quilt strips together or picked out embroidery patterns for her pillows since she was 3……we put together 3 jumpers and tops this summer…..this would be a great beginning for her.

  14. Nancy says:

    i hope to convince my 10 year old granddaughter that she likes to sew. lol So far she likes to play in the fabric which is the first step.

  15. Sandra Chavez says:

    One of my dearest friends will hopefully be retiring soon. She has shown interest in learning how to sew for her new granddaughter. What a lovely retirement this great book would make.

  16. Lisa Gasparino says:

    I have been sewing for over 38 years and often thought I would love to teach young women to sew.
