Short story..Large family, oldest child freshman in high school. She was diagnosed with CA shortly after graduation from grade school. She is doing well. I did not ask what kind of CA she has as I did not feel it important for this PIF. Anyway Mom is looking for fabric and sewing tools for her and her siblings. I have lots of fabric that is not new up to date and many spools of serger thread I have put together. Also will be giving her my Phaff portable machine. What else should I be looking for in my sewing goodies. What about a book? Got any ideas? thought I might also send my scraps of batting. I'm getting tired of piecing them together or will that be too difficult for a beginner? I am not sure she knows much about sewing but do understand she is very "crafty" Thanks for any ideas you can give me.
