Why am I starting a sewing and DIY blog of my own?
After all we are now reading articles stating that the Millennial’s cannot sew and have stopped practicing this ancient skill (?!!). I also read that people are now born into houses that do not have a sewing machine for the past two generations. A phenomenon that I have also witnessed among my own family and friends.
