In Loving Memory of Bertha

My sister’s mother-in-law, Bertha, has been a seamstress for many years.  She made clothes for herself, her children, grandchildren and for many others that she loved and cared about. 

She was an avid quilt maker and crafter.  Her sewing room was one typical of a seamstress. All the gadgets one needs, and fabric saved from completed projects, as well as fabric for upcoming projects.

When she was called home to live in perfect peace with the Lord, her son and daughter wanted her sewing things to be used for the good of others, just as Bertha had always done in the past. 

The family wanted her sewing things to go toward making dresses for the girls in Haiti.

I felt so very humble and thankful as I was going through her things. So much left over fabric from her completed projects and so much fabric that she was yet to use for a new project.

I think she would be pleased with how that fabric will be used in its final stage.

I was able to use so much of her treasured fabric, lace, thread, bias tape, rick rack, elastic and ribbon. She also had a serger that will be so beneficial with finishing and securing all those seams.
