"in recognition of the importance of home sewing to our nation."
In 1982, I was finishing up my wedding dress and sewing bridesmaid dresses. I had my sewing machine set up on the kitchen table as often as I could. A few years later, I had two young daughters and many friends with babies. But I seemed to be the only one who knew how to sew. I ended up designing and sewing diaper covers and knit outfits for babies and toddlers. Then came my Laura Ashley dress season. I had a small business making floral dresses and jumpers. My labels read JessTaylored after our two daughters (I think I still have a few of those labels). It was fun until everyone wanted a custom dress. I finally made up the last of my floral fabric, sold everything at a reduced rate, put the sewing business away, and turned my attention to quiltmaking.
So excited to know that we have a month devoted to home sewing. What will you be stitching this month?
Come back on Saturday to catch up on our Jen Kingwell Quilt Along!
