Sewing with the Boys!

The boys are always curious about what I'm doing while sitting behind my machine. Each of them got a turn tonight to sit in my chair and see the machine up close.

  2. My mother used to put my son on her lap and sew with him. he made several quilts. The last one he made was for a friend (girl) that he's been friends with forever. After that he said he was done. I'm still hoping he comes back around to it.
    But I say start 'em young.

  5. I taught my oldest to use my machine when he was about 7 or so. He is now 22 and can do his own repairs by hand, but still prefers using a machine:) He will save a stack of items to be repaired and bring them when he visits to use my machine. My 17 yo daughter has her own machine already. I think it is great to share your love with them.

  6. Awesome - what adorable little ones! I also have an Aurora 440QE, and my almost three year old is enamoured with it! I showed her the big red letters that say "BERNINA", and last time we went to the local quilt store she saw another one like it and shouted, "Look mommy, BERNINA!" Yes, the other quilters were VERY impressed!

    Smiles,

  9. I have great photos of both of my sons sitting at the sewing machine with me - learning to sew and quilt. They both enjoy watching me work on quilts.

  10. Great photos! They look like naturals to me :)
    Why 8? Is that the required age for using sewing machines?!! ;)

  11. Darling! What a blessing of two wonderful boys that you have. Thank you for helping to raise the next generation to be interested in all things.

    Also, just wanted to say how much I enjoy, and look forward to, your blog.

  13. I pulled some four patch blocks out of a box and let my granddaughters, 7 and 4, 'design' a mini quilt each. And then they each either sat on my lap, 4 yr old, or ran the foot pedal, 7 yr old. They were very proud of the quilt tops we made together.
