Forgot to mention my mom’s help in getting the vests assembled. I learned all of what I know about sewing from standing next to her while she was working on her machine as I was growing up. Watching her maneuver the machine to do what she needed was inspiring. She never backed down from a challenge.
I had a trip to Detroit 2 weeks before LiB and needed help getting a lining designed and implemented. She took the challenge like a champ. Thanks mom! (An example of her amazing photography is behind the machine).
