As kids my siblings and I always wanted something we could call our own. Never wanting to share, and being artistic, I made personalized dreidel stockings, with my mom’s assistance of course, for all of us. Back then my mom did the sewing, because not until I decided to share these personalized dreidel stockings did I learn to sew. After learning nobody in my family had a working sewing machine I could borrow, just in case it wasn’t my forté, I had to purchase my first sewing machine. Not knowing what to do with the daunting machine I called my mom for assistance and we spent hours laughing and sewing. I have worked diligently since to hand make every dreidel stocking and take pride in every stitch.
