A question or two for you

I have been sewing for most of my life. I started out sewing clothing. At first just for myself, then for my kids.Eventually my quilting took over, and now I do almost no clothing construction. It's pretty much all about quilting for me.

The owner of my local quilt shop mentioned that many of her quilting customers have only experience with quilting, but have no idea how to construct a piece of clothing following a pattern. So now I am wondering how common that is. Do you do any sewing other than quilting? And if you wanted to learn to make a non quilt item, what would it be? What sewing skill would you like to learn?
