Has your child shown an interest in either the fashion industry or sewing?
The reality is that sewing is too often a generationally skipped skill. Our grandmothers and great-grandmothers did it, making it look easy.
As a parent, it’s easy to feel inadequate when you never learned even the basics to pass on to your children. It’s pretty normal that a couple of sewing classes in middle school was likely your only opportunity to hone this life skill.
You’re probably feeling apprehensive since sewing is not one of your talents (and even IF it is, you may recognize that patience isn’t one of your fortes). Nevertheless, you have faith in your child’s abilities …if only your own lack of knowledge wasn’t holding them back.
Every child deserves a safe space, encouragement, and opportunity to explore and learn new skills.
