  1. I was just brought to tears watching this! I’ve sewn my entire life, was a stay at home mom with 4 kids sewing on the side to supplement the family income and to survive a difficult marriage. After a divorce I followed a dream and went to school with 4 little kids becoming a Math teacher. Anxiety, depression and stress ended my teaching career after 5 years. I then leaned back on my sewing skills and worked for 2 companies, designer diapers and full time in an undergarment factory, bought my own industrial machines and made baby slings at home again to supplement my income. I’ve since then become disabled and now tend a new little grandson part time and enjoy having time now to sew for my family!
    I just am so grateful that you are giving skills to women that many people don’t seem to have any more. Sewing has saved my life financially and emotionally!
    Bless you for your efforts and bless the sweet women you are serving! And thank you for sharing this, my heart is full.
