Thank you again to everyone who entered the giveaway! Thank you also for stopping by to see if there was anything else here that caught your eye. I hope you’ll be back soon to see more.
Your comments were all so interesting for me to read. I identified with the experiences of almost everyone in some way. I also started learning by sitting next to my grandmother as I completed my 4-H project each summer. I also had home ec in middle school, but I was already too advanced for what was taught and finished every project early and then helped my classmates with theirs. Eventually, I was able to work independently and most recently I have advanced my skills by reading books and blogs. All in all, I have had a lot of support and help in learning what I know. What struck me about the winner is that she has learned to sew, and is continuing to learn, but that she has had to work a little harder to find learning sources because she is deaf. I am impressed by her insights into hear learning experience and how becoming deaf changed those experiences for her. Thank you, Nancy Sue, for sharing your story with us! You have won the wool yardage! I hope you’ll be able to use it to learn something new or to teach something new to your son!
