My first embroidery lesson came from my aunt who was appalled that at the ripe old age of 10 I had not sewn a sampler yet. NO, I am not 200 years old, this was in 1968. So I was immediately whisked off to pick out a sampler..and I was hooked! I loved it! I learned to sew and embroidered my jeans in the 70's. I have sewn over the years for myself, my sisters and my children, neices and now my own grandchildren! My favorites are heirloom sewing, smocking and I dearly love shadow work embroidery! I have issues and issues of very well used Sew Beautiful magazine that have been and still are a wealth of information for me as I thumb through them almost every day! I have not had the opportunity to go to one of Martha's schools yet, that is still a dream of mine! For now...I have Sew Beautiful, and Martha's Sewing Room to keep me going! Thank you so much!!
