Local teen wins first-ever sewing scholarship
Kimberly Rennspies models a fully lined wool coat and dress she made at the American Sewing Guild, San Antonio
Chapter’s annual luncheon and fashion show in October 2011.
Kimberly Rennspies is the recipient of the first-ever $500 scholarship from the San Antonio Chapter of the American Sewing Guild.
This scholarship was started after one of the members, Jerri Lewis, passed away and her fabric, machines, table, and notions were donated to the local chapter. The scholarship is funded by money from sales of items donated.
Kimberly started in the 4-H Club at the age of 8, raising animals and beginning to learn to sew.
About three years ago, Kimberly joined the San Antonio Chapter of the American Sewing Guild. At the annual luncheon and fashion show that year, she modeled her creation. We learned that she didn’t just sew this outfit, she had to do much more. The 4-H Club required her to make a book showing every step of the construction from concept to finished product, including fabric samples.
Kimberly, 17, is a very accomplished seamstress as well as a great model. She has won many awards in the 4-H Club, including second in state 4-H competitions.
A senior at Marion High School, Kimberly has a concern for her community and beyond, with hours of service.
Kimberly will be studying for a degree in fashion merchandising at either Texas A&M or Angelo State University.
