I have a question for all of you amazing seamstresses. How did you learn how to sew? I took a class in the eighth grade, but that was quite some time ago and I don't remember a thing. I don't even remember learning; I just remember sitting down and getting to work, and suddenly having a pair of purple boxer shorts. (If only!)
My mom can sew but is too lazy to teach me, and I don't know who else to ask. I don't want to fiddle with a sewing machine until I learn on my own, because I'm sure I'll break it -- SO! How does one teach themselves how to sew?
