"When I moved out of my mom's house at 18 I was almost as sad to leave her sewing machine behind as anything else."
"My mother had a sewing machine. I was never allowed to use it, but I was so fascinated by this little needle going up and down joining fabric together that I'd use it when my mother went out to feed the chickens."
