NO, I really dislike sewing and would probably throw a garment out rather than fix it.

I actually won a prize for sewing when I was in first year high school but I don't know how this happened as I think I have always hated it.

I was made to change from being left handed to write with my right hand and sewing is one thing (there are others) that I have a problem with.

I no longer have a sewing machine as I gave it away to a friend who loves sewing.

I DO however like to spin wool and knit!

I always have loved sewing,whether it was hand stitching tiny clothes for my dolls as a child or then designing and making clothes for myself and friends when in my teens! I made all of the items needed when I had my son, including a patchwork and applique quilt for the cot,sheets,pillowcases and little clothes!! I enjoyed doing this ever so much! I have not sewn for a long time now due to my arthritis, but I still appreciate seeing the work of others!I always have loved any hand-work,such as embroidery,beading,and like Finy,spinning fleece and knitting the yarn! In Melbourne I had immense pleasure from such a past-time,but up in the tropics,I just do not need gorgeous hand spun wool for anything at all!!
Probably a no from me. I don't have much talent in that area and also seem to stab myself a lot when hand sewing :((

I do but don't have much time to do it.

No. Refuse to do it. Tiny bits and pieces can be done at the alterations shops. Anything major, or if I want anything made, I will ask my aunt who was a dressmaker by trade. She still does bits and pieces for family or friends. She made my wedding and bridesmaid dresses. First class work. Looked like something out of a designer fashion house. Only cost was for the material. All my other girlfriends were paying at least 1000 dollars at the bridal shops. She has also made some curtains for us which are still in use after nearly 30 years. No worse for wear. Why would I even need to know how to sew with this lady around. Its certainly not a hobby of mine

I just spent the weekend doing just that.
My son went away for two days, and I can tell you my lounge room was full of fabrics, cotton thread all over the floor...lol

I wanted to do mending, plus 'try' my hand at some little projects.

Just can't seem to get into it, when my son is around...Often there is always something to distract me.LOL

It was so much fun .....no noise, no t.v. and just able to make as much 'mess' as I wanted too.

Ended up making a little pillow for my 8 yr old granddaughter for her bed.(see pic).
Easy to do! took 2 hrs, well worth it. :)
I'm certain I would enjoy it much more if I was any good at it.

I don't think there's anything else that I hate more than sewing!

My idiot, non-thinking parents-in-law bought 3 sewing machines, cheap deal, of course, one each for their daughter, & two daughters'-in-law.

Never bothered checking with their son, my husband, let alone me, if I'd like one.

I promptly sold it, & bought a M/W oven, which I would've much preferred, in the first place!

LOVE, just love, cooking! Have done so all my life.
My son's now a Head Chef, & wanted to learn how to cook, by my side, since he was 10!

One of my most enjoyable hobbies', once I married, was attending various Cooking Classes, especially M/W, when they became popular!

More useful by far, than sewing!
Ha!! My ex M-I-L vonlunteered me to do somebody's ironing!!!!!!!! ಠ_ಠ
by Rice
Oh! Rice Paper......didn't think there was one more idiotic than mine!
My response would've been so overwhelming, she would realise she was lucky to survive the 'verbal blast'!
I do believe that generation of women born 1914-1934, were absolute twits! No brains to think for themselves, having not been taught to do so by THEIR parents!

By gum! I think you are right!!

Yes, I enjoy sewing. I have a sewing machine and love it.
No I don't like it

I sowed a summer dress in year 6, at school, then sowed 2 summer cotton nighties, in year 7 or 8. Then my so called sowing skills suddenly stopped!
I have my mothers Singer sowing machine, in the spare room, but it needed something fixing on it, years ago, which I haven't had done, because I didn't want to do anymore sowing! I can't make my self sell it, while she's still alive, (she's 96) not that she'd even know!!! There'd have to be a sowing machine museum out there.....somewhere!
