Have you ever taught someone to sew?
With Home Economics taken out of most schools, we have a few generations now who did not have the opportunity to learn to sew, whether it's fixing a loose button or how to make a quilt.
How are you passing on your skills to a younger generation?
Linda Thielfoldt of "The Quilted Goose" blog has a heartwarming story of sharing her skills. Even as the world of quilting is going through change (and we all know how difficult change can be!), there will still be opportunities to pass on our knowledge and skills.
Tell us in a comment below how you have shared your skills with someone, or you plan to in the future. Or maybe you have some ideas on how the EIHQ Guild can mentor young people. We look forward to your input and comments!
