Sewing is one of those domestic skills that I was taught when a young girl. I learned it at the home of friend who convinced me to join a 4H group. It was a lot of fun getting together with six other giggly girls to try and make items of clothing for ourselves. When the course was over I thought I would continue to sew, but I soon discovered I had a problem. I loved material. Now you'd think that would be an asset for a person who wants to sew, but in my case it worked against me. You see, I liked the big lengths of material as it came off the bolt - the full stretch of the pattern, the feel of it. I liked it so much I couldn't bring myself to cut it. What if I made a mistake? What if the whole thing was ruined and I had to throw that lovely material away? I just couldn't do it. So the material sat - in a box in a closet. I bought all my clothing ready-made. Years later when I did decide I wanted to make something, I realized I'd forgotten a lot. My sewing skills hadn't developed.
