We are proud to have Gramma J’s Sew Cottage as one of our licensees. Gramma J, also known as Judy, kindly offered to share this lovely story with us about a Garden Market where she had her hand crafts on display, including some colorful, cuddly toys made from our Baby Puzzle Ball pattern:
A lady holding a toddler came up to my booth and was looking at the balls. As I told her about them, she asked if she could take one down the lane to show her little girl. I asked if she had twins. She said “No. My other daughter is in that stroller down there. She is handicapped. She’s 3 years old, but is only 3 months mentally. She can’t grasp things yet. I’d like to see her response to this.” How could I say “No” to that? It wasn’t long before the Mother returned with a huge grin and “JOY” written all over her face. She said that in that short time, she saw responses from her daughter that she had never seen before.
I get so much satisfaction from this darling ball. I know that each one will bring positive developmental responses from each child who gets one.

About Gramma J’s Sew Cottage
My mind is always busy. With a love for the outdoors as well as a love for making a house a home, the creative part of my brain is always at work.
I love designing, creating and sewing. How we decorate our home is a reflection of us, from our walls to what we have on our beds and floors, and what we wear. It’s our personality and what others remember about us.
I love my family, they are my life. I am a very proud Grandmother of nearly 2 dozen Grandchildren and almost the same amount of Step Grandchildren. Wow, that’s about 3 1/2 dozen, and we haven’t quite started with the Greats yet! They all live away from us so I think it’s important that they always have something that has been handmade especially for them. One Grandson told me that when he used the blanket I made him it was like I had my arms around him. Oh, does that melt a Gramma’s heart! I wish every child could feel that special love, so when I’m not sewing for my own kids, I’m thinking of yours. Your home and your kids. I get pleasure from helping you with projects that you can’t accomplish by yourself. From inspirational thoughts for your loved ones to wake up to, to cheerful “Welcome” wall hangings…from seasonal décor, table cloths or runners or baby cuddle items and bath towels…I can bring the warmth of handmade love into your home.
