Part of the reconstructive surgery required that they put a graft into my heart and guess what it's made out of ? You guessed it FABRIC, yes I now have fabric in my heart, literally. I not only work, live and breathe fabric but I actually have it in my heart. Now mind you it's only Dacron, not the most glamorous, but it should last for the rest of my life! I realize that this was a bit extreme of me to show how much I love what I do and how much I love fabric!
