My mom is not crafty. Her mom was an amazing seamstress, and made her rip out a zipper twelve times when she was in junior high home ec. I'm afraid that turned her off to sewing forever!

My mom was always there to help me when I needed help with my sewing projects... She wasn't really sewing when I was young so she didn't thaught me that..

She was always changing something in the house : the color of a wall, a table, a lamp... there was always something changing and I loved that :)

Back before I had my own sewing machine, I used to use my mom's sometimes (I started out hand-sewing) and for whatever reason it completely hated me - I'd use it and get nothing but a snarl of thread on the back, but then she'd use it - making no adjustments - and it would work beautifully. So sometimes I'd let that be a reason for her to finish my projects. (But MOM, my friend's baby is due NEXT WEEK and I have to get it quilted! It just won't work for me...)

My mom and I took stained glass classes together and then every Sunday afternoon we would work on our projects together.

I remember working on a pantsuit that I had to make for home ec. I was not the best sewer, so my mom helped me and it came out beautifully. I was so proud of my new outfit and something we made together.

My mom bought me my first machine and gave me a lesson while she visited one weekend. The dress was a mess and I gave up for the night. The next morning I woke up to my mother with the seam ripper taking out the stitches for me. That's love!

My mom hates sewing, and she would make fun of me for the rest of my life if she knew "crafting" was a word I used regularly. But that's certainly not to say she didn't make stuff. She just made it in the kitchen. She was a caterer, and taught me to cook. My favorite is when she asks me to come "help" her, but what she really means is sit there and keep her company.

My fondest memory with my mom crafting is when she helped me make my very first quilt 11 years ago. It was for my niece. She helped me every stitch of the way and at the end of the day it was really simple and my niece loved it to death (holes straight through all 3 layers). I was immediately hooked and never looked back!

My mom was not a sewer, but she was a photographer (including her own darkroom) and a leather worker. These were great activities to do together and I really wish I still had my leather pocketbook with the funky 70s mushrooms on the front flap :-) We also used to do a craft called copper enamalling where you sprinkled ground glass particles on a copper shape and heated them to ungodly temperatures in a tiny little tabletop kiln (really!), removed the glowing shapes with molten glass with a little metal spatula and placed them to cool on an ASBESTOS pad. It is amazing that I survived to adulthood, but I had a great time!!

Sorcha girl said...

My mother taught me to embroider and I started with pre-printed pillowcases at the age of 8. My grandmother taught me to sew and the first project was an apron for my mother. It was gingham and we used the squares to cross stitch a design on the hem. I believe I was 10.

My mom didn't sew with me, but she was always re-purposing/re-designing clothes. She'd buy stuff at Goodwill and redo it. She was very creative and talented!

I remember sitting on the floor of the sewing room, watching my mom's foot work the sewing machine pedal. Sometimes I had my own little handstitching project, sometimes I was just content to watch her work and listen to the hum. Life was so simple then, wasn't it? It's a happy memory, thanks for helping me recall it!

My mom was apparently super crafty. She used to sew my sister's Halloween costumes and make them ridiculously large bows. But I think once she got to child number 5, we didn't let her keep up. So I remember making her draw us. I loved the way she drew and she made each of us different and feel special.

My mum has sewn and knitted the dolls clothes for my dolls. And SO cute! I loved them!

Birlot said...

My mum died nearly two years ago. I still think of her every day. She could do anything crafty. And I was the one of her 4 girls who "crafted" the most. She taught me to sew knit, crotchet, spin, weave, and make paper. We came to quilting at around the same time. My favourite memories are around shared fabric. The phone calls before I visited where she would say "have you got any pink scraps? " and I would bring over a bag of goodies for her to rummage through before checking out her stash for any treasures for my own projects. I loved that we both had quilts which had the same fabric in them but were completely different. I miss you mum.

Margo said...

My mother could sew but she never taught me to. She did teach me to knit when I was about 5 and in my early teens she taught me to crochet.

Tanya said...

My mother taught me to sew and I am so thankful for that. When I was little she made me some clothes, as I got older I remember her making a clown costume. When I started to sew on my own, we would make those stuffed bunnies and cows that were all the rage in the 90's.

Karen Smith said...

My mom and grandmother always let me cut and sew up their scraps and use their sewing machines even when I was very young. My first real lesson in actually making something that wasn't meant for my barbie came at the beginning of 6th grade when my mom let me pick out the fabric and pattern for my first day of school outfit. It was the first garment that I sewed by myself, and it started a lifetime of loving to sew. Thanks Mom :)

My fondest memory is when my mother gave me my grandmother's sewing machine to have as my first sewing machine. She also gave me my grandmother's sewing box which was full of so much of her history. When I opened the sewing box I could smell her house and I was instantly taken back to my childhood. I love that sewing machine because I know that is what my grandmother sewed with and I have made many quilts on it. When I use it I feel like she is so proud of me and watching over me. I can't bring myself to use any of her notions because I want to preserve that sewing box and all of those memories.

Thanks for the great question and bringing me back in time a little. :)

My mother was usually working two jobs to suppot the two of us. Child support was not that greatest 43 years ago when my parents divorsed. I love my father but he lived a much grander lifestyle than mom and I. My maternal grandmother taught me to sew on a treedle machine at 7. I hope that counts. She is still not a crafter, sewist or interested but she is my best friend.

Sugarbabe said...

My mom always wore dresses and when I was 14, I talked her into letting me make her a pants suit. She loved it so much, she started shopping with fabric with me so I could make her more. She and Daddy had bought me a sewing machine when I finished 8th grade, at my urging.

My Grandmother would visit us from Argentina every year for six to eight weeks at a time. I remember being mesmerized as a little girl as I watched her metal moving quickly making the unique clickety clack noise. When I was nine, my mom and I took a knitting class together. It is such a great memory I have- knitting and purling together. She also taught me how to sew when I was twelve or thirteen.
