  • How did you learn? Did your mom teach you? My mom is very undomestic... but I would like to learn I think. Do you think I could take a class?

  • Taking a class is a great way to learn! I'm self taught despite my mom being an excellent seamstress! She never had time to teach me, so I figured it out on my own. Its funny as that's the same way she learned. Through the neglect of a much too busy mom! I did take a class in jr. High, but I knew more then the class taught by then. I took another class in High school and loved that too. That's when I learned to quilt! I took another class in college for the easy A. I helped the teacher out with a few things
     
    Didn't learn anything, but did get my fun and easy A that I needed that semester. I loved the "text book" we were required to buy, but never opened in class. I devoured that!

  • my mom is an excellent seamstress too but she didn't teach me squat
     


    I took the home ec class in high school which did very little for me... I basically taught myself.

    A class is excellent.

  • my mom isn't a very good sewer, though she tried. she actually taught me cross stitch, which is my best sewing skill!
     


    i'm a bit self taught, i am still a beginner! i worked at jo-ann fabrics for three or four years (mainly as a cashier) but you can't help but be inspired working there!!
     
    i learned to quilt while working there (a friend taught me, but the employee discount helped me get started.)

    i think a class or even a private lesson would be a great idea!
