was young. She also worked for a local Wilcox County clothing

Materials that are used in the construction
of her clothing are obtained from online fabric stores and consist of a variety

tradition of sewing and hopes to pass this on to her granddaughter in the near

to a usable product”.
“I have an Etsy and Facebook page” where
she shares her clothing items with others” says Jackie.
