Family Values - Preserving Memories

They call it the Fabric Shops and Embroidery, but this place is actually about family vales. Fabric is what Grandparents, mothers, fathers, sons and daughters use to create, as a challenge and activity together. Not just clothes, not just a shirt to wear as a badge of honor (as in my daughter made this), but making memories and shared experiences. As a practice handed down generations, this is one that goes all the way back since people have worn clothes. That’s a long time. Don’t hesitate to ask Hurley about his grown children and grandchildren, nothing will bring a smile across his face faster, and he's got stories to tell.

This art and craft has been rapidly diminishing, along with all family values. People are misdirected, in this great modern war of mass distraction, don’t let your family be so misdirected. When you sit down with your family and can’t find the words to say, even when you know so much needs to be said, having a practical hands on excuse to work together, to spend time together, is a good place to start. It gives you the opportunity to teach, be followed, acknowledge your children and their growth and skill, and to show them how much you love them. When people sit down to play a video game all day, in isolation, all by themselves, that day is gone forever. No one laying on his or her death bed wishes for more time to play a video game. Make your life worth having lived, by sharing it, doing something meaningful, teaching, leading, and working together with real people, making something real that can last your grandchildren's lifetimes. Enable them with knowledge and skill. Make memories doing real things in the real world. Make memories making things, for and with the people you care about!

You can find sewing patterns, so if you buy the material, scissors, thread, and needles you can follow step-by-step instructions and make clothing you and your family would be proud to wear.

I guess you now know what I think, and what my advice would be. So if you are interested in fabric, sewing and embroidery, this is the first place you should stop in and ask, about these things and what you might be able to do with these ideas. Say hello to Mr. Hurley and Mrs. Judith Adams for me.

What are "Yankee notions"?

Sometimes people think Madison Historic District, also known as Historic Madison, is located in Milton Kentucky, but we are actually located just 1 mile north in Downtown Madison Indiana, across the Harrison Bridge on the north side of the Ohio River.
