Hi, I'm Margaret Smith, I live in Fort Worth, Texas, and I am addicted to sewing! Actually I am addicted DIY projects, crafting and sewing but spending the day sewing is primarily my fix!
I grew up with a a mom that was a professional tailor and encouraged me to be creative. I can't remember a time when she sat down and officially taught me to sew. It really was just part of what we did routinely. I can remember being very young and sitting on her lap while she sewed. She taught me early to pull out the pins before she came to them. Remember, we never sew over pins!
I had a scrap basket of fabric I could play in and I was taught which scissors were for fabric and which were for paper and patterns. At some point, I don't remember how old I was, I was allowed to use her machines on my own with permission.
Fast-forward about 20 some years and I was a young mom wanting to sew for my kids. That's when I got my first machine that was all mine! That machine was quickly joined by a serger. I wanted to make sure my creations looked professional so I began taking classes, reading books and asking my mom and other professionals for guidance.
I began teaching others to sew, including my children, and then in 2005 I opened my own business selling the items I was making.About Let's Learn To Sew
