It’s not an unusual sight to see a bubbe sewing, knitting or crocheting a special something for her grandchild. But for Nita Quint, who has 43 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild, sewing personalized fabrics for them is an extraordinary feat of patience.

Quint, 98, embroiders challah covers and tablecloths for her great-grandchildren as future wedding gifts.In total, that’s 86 legacy gifts — and counting.
