Awesome, awesome, awesome.
It is to bad that the young women of today rarely know how to even hold a needle or thread one. I know there are some that do. It is sad tho that we do not spend much time teaching our young to do this. I say "we" not as the people here, but "we" in the sense of all people.

Yes I agree totally about the fact that young women would benifit from learning some needle skills - It seems when both parents needed to work to survive, those skills are some of the things that were lost to almost a whole generation. Sad but true, eh?

Thank you for finding this video, Ellen. The needlework is exemplary and rare. Too bad this is nearly a lost art today.
