I grew up in a small town outside of Toronto. It’s one of those places that completely lacks anything for a child or teenager to do. One of my first memories growing up is being baby-sat by my great-grandmother. She had all of these creative talents – she could draw, paint, knit… Over the course of my childhood (and many baby-sitting sessions), she taught me how to knit. When I was a bit older, my mother (who also had talent for the creative) taught me how to sew. We always had a sewing machine in the house and my mom was always working on different projects. She would have me help every time, and I learned how to do it all when it came to sewing. Eventually, I took over the sewing machine and would complete her projects completely independently. Now, when my mother needs a sewing project done, she calls me. And my great-grandmother is turning 90 this year. After a couple of strokes she can no longer use her hands the way she once did. I’m determined to use mine as much as I can for as long as I’m able.
