Walking through a vintage “sod house” on the prairie of South Dakota, this sewing machine sat idle in the main room of the home. Today very few people make clothes for their family. In the years prior to the 20th century, most families had to create their own wardrobes. The house that this was found in was actively lived in until the 1940’s in South Dakota.

Newly retired, Judy Hall-Folde has turned her attention to focus on her creative side. While she loved teaching, Judy is now adding to her knowledge of photography, writing (recently published a children’s book ISBN9781462645268) and looking back to where she started with pencil, oils and maybe even watercolor!
Her wonderful husband, who creates beautiful rustic wood picture frames, her children and grandchildren are what motivates all that is good in her!
