Homeschool Advice

Dear Helping Hand,

Id like to teach my daughter to sew, but I never learned myself. My mother-in-law is going to loan us her sewing machine, and she has tried to help, but I find her explanations way over my head. Help!

Answer:

Its often true that those that really know how to do something forget about the baby steps they took when first learning. Its especially true for sewing. When I wanted to teach my own daughters some simple sewing, I started in with what I thought would be easy. Id forgotten the lessons on stitching on paper I had done in 7th grade Home Economics many years earlier.

Fortunately there are a couple of books that meet those new to sewing right where they are. Sewing Machine Fun by Nancy Smith and More Sewing Machine Fun are excellent begin-at-the-very-beginning books. The projects are fun and provide a step-by-step introduction to sewing on a sewing machine. The Timberdoodle Company (360- 426-0672) sells these books or you can get them or other learning to sew resources in the Eclectic Homeschool Online Bookstore.
