To my high school home economics teacher Miss Pierce, if you're out there, I owe you many thanks too! You never told me I "couldn't" make something. Even when it was a crazy project you never said that's too hard try something easier, you just smiled and let me muddle my way through, learning valuable lessons along the way.
Please share your own sewing story in the comments below. How did you start or re-start sewing and who encouraged you along the way? I can't wait to hear the tales you have to tell!
