National Thank Your Mentor Day

 January is National Mentoring Month and January 26th is National Thank Your Mentor Day. 

I would like to thank my Mom, Barbara Atkinson, for teaching me everything that she knew about sewing, and encouraging me to follow my spark.  I have no doubt that it was difficult at times, if not most of the time. In addition to teaching me for nearly ten years:

-She would sit with me for HOURS in the fabric stores when I was picking out my 4-H projects.
-She would spend money on fabric and patterns for me that she could have spent in many other ways.
-She would rip out my sewing mistakes so that I wouldn't have to, and she would console me when I didn't win a prize in the 4-H contests.
-For my college graduation present, she gave me my first Bernina sewing machine (better than a new car to a sewist!).  

 Did you have a mentor?  For sewing, or life in general?  Feel free to share your story here!

-Ann
