I love design, textiles, colour, sitting behind my sewing machine and putting it all together. One of my favourite sources is "Little Punjab" on Main Street Vancouver. I have seen a slow change over the last 30 years but lately there has been a more significant one. The real estate value in the surrounding area has soared with an average family home now $1,500,000. The rent has become unaffordable for smaller merchants and shops have moved over to Surrey with it's large Indian population and more affordable rent.
