Glenda! I am so Glad your back! I used your system while my boys were young and I learned so much! I made many many T-Shirts and Blue jeans, with your sure-fit system. I've made nice well fitting shirts and dresses. I Just took out my set to gift it to my 13 year old daughter who is interested in designing her own things when I read that your back. Thank You! ~ Indigo

Wow! this is fantastic news!!! I have been using Sure-Fit-Design since 1983, when a company rep came to our Northern Canada town for a presentation and demo. I wore out my Stylus over the years. Searching the Internet for SFD, I was utterly disappointed to learn that Glenda had retired from the business at the time. Now, she is back and I am simply elated! Have already ordered a new Stylus and will be eager to learn about the new SFD during the chat. Fan #1, Connie, Alberta, Canada
