    Greetings! I learned at a tender age as a pre-teen. I learned in Home Economics @ school. My mother reinforced it during the summer by enrolling me and my sister in a Signer sewing class (we had a neighborhood Singer store at that time). I still have a few items that I made: sewing and even embroidery. :-) . Thank you.
