She would never be able to meet the demand, with her 30-year-old sewing machine and teaching job, and doesn’t even want to. “It would spoil all the beauty of the thing, she assures, I wish everyone more joy, if you give something to someone (…) and it explodes, and the whole world has joy, it’s great. “
