  61. I have been sewing since I was real small. My grandma taught me how to thread buttons on yarn so she could sew when I was real small and I learned a new skill each summer after that. I made my own clothes through most of middle school (wish it was cool then) and started quilting in high school. Pretty sure I have been sewing in some form 30 of my 36 years. I just wish I had taken the time to really learn what I was doing and mastered each skill instead of just learning each skill...that is my new goal.
