Last weekend my grand-daughter Gabby approached me with an interesting request, ” Grandma, will you teach me how to sew”. At first, I thought she meant to sew by hand because she had watched me sewing a penny rug ( a small candle rug made from wool with small leave appliques all around it). I got out thread and needles and was getting together some wool to create a rug for her and she said, ” no grandma, I mean on this cute little machine”. I looked at her and she was pointing to my 221 singer featherweight. My immediate thought was… 1. this girl has good taste in machines. I own many machines, and by many I mean 14…. but don’t tell my husband, he has no idea. I own 2 Bernina, 2 juki’s, a juki serger, 2 janomes, and 6 featherweight ( all different in color and model), a singer 94 that Ian gave me as a birthday gift when I turned 50 ( in mint condition I may add), and a singer treadle that was my mothers. But this little girl choose my very first featherweight. Now my second thought was this… I FINALLY HAVE A QUILTER!!!!!! I am so EXCITED!!!!!! LOL I am sooooo EXCITED!!!! okay, Ive regained my composure. I picked up my camera and decided to document this ostacious event, so with this blog you will see plenty of photos. Consider it quilting 101.
