“There were clothing parts all over from college students and we were looking at all of the ideas they had created and portrayed in their designs.”  These are the thoughts of the few lucky students who were able to go on a field trip with Ms. Bird to SLCC. Salt Lake Community College is one of the only colleges in Utah to have an appeal fashion design course, which is one of their reasons for going.  Another reason is that Ms. Bird found her love for sewing from her mother who is deceased and this field trip was a way of remembering and paying tribute to her.
