    Hi SewNews: The inspiration to my everyday sewing is the eldest of my three grandchildren, a thirteen year old beautiful girl who rekindled my love for designing and creating outfits. Life as a teenager (from what I remember) wasn’t always easy, and when one adds weight to the equation, all the stores in the world seem to have everything that fits wrong or not at all for her age. I am able to cater to her shape while still keeping her fashionable and up to date. She motivates me to learn and create new styles and designs as well as practice some old techniques.
