In 1997, the year I turned 50, I had the opportunity to purchase my first antique fabric sample book, the Dargate book.
While in graduate school in my mid 50s, I thought I would like to have the chance to teach....but decided I was probably too old to start a new career. I have recently been given that option...as an adjunct professor at Montana State University. In January, I will be 65 and have the opportunity to teach Fashion and Textiles to a room full of 19 year olds! I am thankful for the chance.
