|Section 5: Conclusion|
Hello, I love creativity! Growing up, I watched my mother design and sew the most wonderful creations in her dress shop. Years later, after I learned to sew for myself, I realized what a rare and valuable skill sewing is to have. “Wow! You made that?!” people would say to me after I told them that I had sewn the dress, blouse, or jacket that I was wearing. Knowing that I have a skill that I can use to create something beautiful with just my hands and a few materials has been an immense source of joy for me, and I’d like to share it with you!
