Mothers Today Don’t Really Understand Sewing or Cooking…But They Do Make Money

According to a new survey of mothers under age 35, 90% don’t know how to starch a shirt…50% can’t sew…40% don’t know how to do even basic baking…and 77% don’t know how to knit.

BUT…more than TWO-THIRDS of them have careers.

Siobhan Freegard runs a social networking site for parents called Netmums.  She says, quote, “We simply don’t have the hours to devote to these skills which our own mothers and grandmothers had.

“Jobs like knitting a sweater from scratch or making pastry take up precious time moms could be spending with their kids and many store-bought items are now better value than making it at home anyway.”
