Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, noted lover of theater and the arts, clearly appreciates the finer things in life.
So it's no surprise to hear that the Notorious R.B.G. took the time to write a thank-you note to Sahra Harvin after receiving a handmade lace collar tatted by the college student over the course of four months.
Harvin has been tatting -- the art of making certain types of lace -- since July 2014, she told The Huffington Post on Friday.
"I took a class and was instantly hooked," she said.
"The thing about tatting is that most of the projects aren't particularly useful. Nobody needs a million doilies, but they're nevertheless fun to make. And projects are always more fun when you're making something for another person," Harvin said.
She realized Ginsburg was one person who might regularly wear a handmade lace collar.
"I thought, 'Hey! Ruth Bader Ginsburg is always wearing a lace collar over her robes! Maybe she'd like one!'" Harvin said. "As a feminist, I've always been inspired by her, and I think we are so lucky to have such an brilliant, progressive woman on the Supreme Court advocating for our rights."
Harvin sent Ginsburg the collar without expecting any response. She said she was shocked when a handwritten note of thanks appeared in her mailbox.
Harvin had worried the collar wouldn't even reach Ginsburg.
"I actually considered not sending it, because I was worried months of work would get thrown away by a staffer who didn't realize what it was," Harvin said. "It's incredible to me that she took the time to write a handwritten thank-you note. It's just so special and gracious."
The student said she hopes the note of thanks, an image of which she posted to Reddit, will catch the eye of potential tatters and inspire more people to learn the art.
