Share the joy of sewing with the kids in your life. — Review by Quilter's Home magazine
Overall Rating
When we speak to those q-bizzers most in the know, we hear the same worry-filled refrain: How will we get young people interested in quilting? As anyone looking around a guild meeting knows, the bales of gray hair in the audience practically guarantees Clairol is recession-proof. But, we're so over the whining, girls. Instead, we're challenging all you quilters to do something about it. If you want quilting to survive the demise of the baby boomers, grab a youngster and start sewing with them. Which brings us to this book. Mother and daughter stitchers, Anita and Jennifer, offer a great start with simple, relevant projects that include quilts, cell phone holders and ponchos...stuff that kids will want to sew. All the projects presume an adult is around for handy help, which means you get some quality time with your favorite junior. Some are tailor made (we're so punny) for scout and youth groups. Just picture making one of these quilts as a club fundraiser. Then see all those parents with fists o' cash, fighting to win their kids' quilt in a raffle. (Yep, sounds like a guild meeting.) "Should you buy this book?"...We did, because we have kids in our lives and they need to feel the joy of sewing. --Quilter's Home magazine, February/March 2010, page 68. (Posted on 1/28/10)
