I received a lovely e-mail from my DGD recently, wishing me a happy  
BD and Mother's Day, and thanking me for teaching her to sew.  She  
asked what type of sewing machine (domestic or industrial) I had  
taught her to sew on.  She needed to know, because she had been  
working in the costume shop at Juilliard for a year-and-a-half, and  
was recently offered a position in the costume shop with a  
professional theater company in New Your City!

She just confirmed the theater is:

Happy Dance!!!  I am over the moon.  So thrilled all the projects we  
did together (starting with doll clothes and dance costumes, and  
working up to a beautiful dress) are assisting her now.

I was offered the job of running the costume department of the local  
professional opera company (based on my costuming work at the local  
high school with a woman who was leaving that position), back in the  
70s.  However, it required researching and designing historically  
correct costumes for the productions, and I was not at all sure I  
had the necessary skills or resources (this was before the internet  
made those kinds of searches so much easier).  I have always  
regretted not taking a stab at it.

I can hardly wait for summer so DGD and I can have time to discuss  
her experience.

I am sure you are bursting with pride and rightly so!  Your
granddaughter must be thrilled, too, and a much deserved
congratulations to her (and you, too!)!

Ask her to post pictures whenever she can or she can send
them to you and you can post for her.

It doesn't get much better than that. Teach a skill and you have it  forever. She's her grandmother's Granddughter. Yay for both of you.

Too short, though, she is at Banff right now,  
https://www.banffcentre.ca/music , and will be home for only 10 days  
or so before she returns to NYC.  However I hope to get in some  
quality sewing time with her.
