    I love this book! The projects aren’t only appropriate for young sewers. Many of them have teen appeal as well. Any beginner would benefit from this book.

    I have 5 granddaughters ages 2-6 who are eager to sit at my sewing machine and learn to sew. Each one wants to create something different, of course! This book would be perfect for teaching them.

    The projects in this book are the kind that children just love. I would love to win this book to teach my grandson how to make a music bag as he has just begun playing the trumpet. I would also like to teach my granddaughters how to make many of these projects. Thanks!

  • Charlotte Brown

    I think this would be a great starter book for my granddaughters to learn sewing skills. They are almost out of their teen years but none of the five know how to sew.

  • Irene Arrigo

    I have a 5 year old grandson that I would love to teach to sew. He’s interested but lives 150 miles away. When he comes to visit, I need easy projects for him. Sometimes he’s here only for a weekend.

  • Cathy Faulstich

    Great beginner projects that kids would like to do. It would be a great addition to any sewist’s library when we are helping family or friends who are youngsters become enthused about sewing.

  • Nora Mitchell

    My granddaughter would have lots of fun while learning from this book. She is very keen to sew and this book would keep her interested. Well done, Nancy.

    Ladies don’t forget the sons and grandsons
    Sewing is a skill and fun for all to enjoy. It also makes a wonderful teaching tool. It incorporates math, art, creativity, organizational
    skills and much more. Especially don’t forget
    our challenged children can benefit from being
    involved in this activity too.

  • Raina

    The “may do 99% of the work” makes me smile in agreement, but what a hoot to sit next to my 6 yr old granddaughter while she sews.

  • Alice Noles
    October 6, 2018

    I can’t wait for my 3 year old and 7month old granddaughters to get old enough to be able to sew! Won’t be long!

  • Deanna McDermott

    What a beautiful legacy to leave behind.
