Go to school and you could become famous. That’s what happened to Chief Instigator Wendy when she went to a serging class at Vogue Fabrics last week.
Local ABC news journalist, Leah Hope, reports in her September 20 segment “Back To Basics” that skills such as sewing which was traditionally handed down from mothers to daughters (did she forget sons?) seems to have skipped a generation with the pendulum swing of women wanting to be less traditional and more modern. However, with younger people realizing that they aren’t getting fit they want or just a matter of economics, there is now a shift to learn this wonderful skill of sewing that we know and enjoy.
“Younger women who didn’t study sewing they don’t have home-ec any more are coming in,” said Wendy Grossman of The American Sewing Guild and Sew Chicago. “They’re interested.”
