Sewing with DGD

This summer I have been doing some hand sewing with granddaughter and
talking about sewing in general. She has been watching me sew on my
machine. So today I got out the 1950's Singer (I had it professionally
serviced) and she & I started threading it and sewing straight lines. She
repaired a t-shirt where the side seam had come undone. We were both
pleased with her results! So next Saturday she will start sewing on her
first pair of shorts. When the temperature get too cool to wear them
outside, she can wear them for pajama pants until she need to wear the long
pants. We are both happy and the sewing machine will be her Christmas gift.

Such a wonderful way to share the skills and the machine. My DGD who turns 18(!) tomorrow, has (on permanent loan) one of my Singer 401As and one of my Bernette MO 2-3-4s. She had the Huskylock 910, but she had difficulties with it, so I'm letting her test drive the Bernette which is a simpler serger (it was my first).
I love knowing my great-grandmother's, mother's and my skills are being polished by another generation. :-)
