Sewing is a valuable skill for both sexes. My mom sews my mother-in-law sews and actually teaches sewing part time. My daughter is 9 and she can see supervised as well.

That's fantastic! And our daughters are the same age too! I meet a lot of women who say "oh my mom sewed a lot, but I never learned", and I've always wanted to avoid that with my own daughter. It's a valuable skill that should be passed down to the next generation for sure!

This post is nice to see. My mother and aunts have quite the collection of vintage singer sewing machines that they actively use. My mother is getting ready for retirement. She wants a barn on her retirement property to set up as a sewing & crafting room.

My mother is currently in the lead of vintage sewing machines because I found her a 1921 singer sewing machine at a junk sale for $20. It didn't work because it needed maintenance. That cost us $75 at our local shop that is now closed down.

My mom finally as an adult taught me to sew. My daughter's new sweater ripped and I decided I needed to learn, so I asked her to show me how.
So far I have fixed a stuffed animal and a pair of my husband's pants. Not great jobs but I did it.

What age would you recommend starting to teach kids this skill?
