    My mother started me sewing when I was four and on the machine when I was five. It was the only way to keep me safe as I would not leave it alone. I am days away from 60 and it has been acontinuing part of my life. I have inspired many people to sew including both of my sons. One son has cerebral palsy and operates his own machine. Many people have said they couldn’t sew and I said "why not, lets try. I work at a tribal school that doesn’t have a sewing program. We just started an afterschool program. The kids are excited; I am excited and hopeful. The skills and joys need to be created and continued.

    It’s always fun to wear handmade items. It’s always wonderful to be helpful to those who are inspired by these items.

    My mom and my best friend and I inspire each other all the time. Though mom taught me to sew, I’ve inspired her to really delve into her sewing. I’ve also inspired my fiancé to sew his own camera backpack!

    I’ve inspired two relatives to get a sewing machine and start sewing a couple of years ago, but sadly it seems like the’ve lost their enthusiasm…

    I previously taught in the Rio Grande Valley in Weslaco Texas. The first year I was at a middle school where there was a large number of overage boys in the Life Skills classes. We arranged field trips to Levi Strauss and Hagers Men’s Wear manufacturing plants. Our of this, the boys insisted on setting up their mini production line using 3 very old Elna machines we had retrieved from the warehouse. We set up each machine: rolled hem foot on one, straight stitch on another and zig zag on the third. They took charge and created jams or shorts using their abbreviated production line. It was an inspiration to see them finish and model their projects.

    I read so many blogs about sewing and looked for ideas for tea cozies. I made two cozies for my 2 friends that love tea! They thought the gift was so unique. I got one of them to go into a fabric store and now her daughter is trying to knit.. I always try to interest people in learning a handcraft. On Christmas a niece tried to show us how to make Danish paper ornaments that she learned in London.

    I haven’t inspired anybody to sew but I have with crochet. My freind has started to try to crochet because of a conversation we had. I told her about how I had started to crochet and how great it was. When I am crocheting I don’t worry about anything but the next stitch. I don’t stress or worry about anything else but what I am working on. It is a really nice feeling. I also love the end product and looking at it and knowing I made it. I get the same feeling when I sew. That is why I love it so much.

    My friend’s daughter. She seen all the revamping I’ve done with shirts and turning them into dresses that she wanted to start learning to sew so she could revamp her clothes too. And it’s sweet because she’s still in intermediate (so young and wanting to sew).

    Tragically, or not, I have inspired not a single person, not even my daughter, who professes to admire my sewing, and not even her friends, who ooh and aah over the things I sew for her. I’m afraid I’m simply too eager to please to inspire anyone!

    Yes. My younger sister has been in awe (so to speak lol) of some of my work and I’ve always encouraged her to try her hand at something. She has and is making me very proud. Our mom sews as well and has been my inspiration and I know my mom is also my sister’s inspiration also.It’s now becoming a family thing :).

    I don’t think so, but I have finally found some people that actually make things for themselves, with some sewing involved. That was a big thing for me. And my kids are interested in what I do, but a little young to start using needles and sewing machines.

    I inspired my friend, Mary, to start sewing (again) after she had put her sewing machine in the closet for a long time. I emailed her links to some of the Burda images of what other people had sewn that I knew would look good on her and match her personal style.
