My Mom and two of her sisters worked in a garment factory in the early mid-century. One of them worked there until it closed in the late 1980's when manufacturers started sending their work to foreign countries. From them, I learned to love to sew. Though my first sewing machine was just a little pink plastic toy machine that only did one stitch, I loved every minute I spent sewing on it. I haven't stopped loving sewing since then.
