After retiring with twenty-one years of service from a local university, it was time to find a new path in my journey of life. This new fork in the road led me right back to the beginning which was sewing. It began with a sewing class at a Singer Sewing Machine Store.  Singer held a contest for new students according to age for creativity and design.  To my surprise, I was announced the winner in my age group at 16 years of age. After working so many years, now I have a chance to return to something I love and use my gift as a blessing to others.
