If you have the itch to learn to sew, or knit, or remodel a bathroom… Do it.
As for sewing; there are many options available.
1) Call your local fabric store and ask about beginner classes.
2) Ask a friend to either teach you or point you in the right direction.
3) Pull out the owner’s manual for your sewing machine and learn the basics regarding threading, bobbin filling, etc.
4) Go to the library and check out some beginning sewing books from the Junior Section. These books are usually better illustrated and have very clear instruction.
5) Visit youTube and search for some tutorials. Or go to Craftsy.com. I love Craftsy!
With a little determination you CAN do this.
I was in my mid-30′s when my good friend Lisa invited me to go with her to a beginner quilting class. The class involved making a selection of quilt blocks in coordinating fabrics of our choice. It took me nearly two years to finish mine, as I recall.
If you’re telling yourself, “It’s too late to learn something new.” Let me tell you about my friend Grace.
Grace decided to learn to play the organ. She was in her late 80′s at the time.
If it wasn’t too late for Grace.
It’s not too late for you.
What do you want to learn to do?
I am planning to learn to knit socks this year. I know I’ve said it before.
I figure if I yammer on enough about it I’ll sort of force myself to get crackin’ and just do it!
