Next generation sewing

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. Juno
