Sewing is not as commonplace in my corner of the world as it once was. I was delighted to see this display of vintage sewing machines in a trendy upscale clothing store on Newbury Street in Boston. It reminded me of my mother and her skill and talent as a seamstress. She took pride in her appearance and was a fashionista of sorts; I never saw her in sloppy sweats, jeans or house dresses. I don't think she would approve of the "throw-away" fashions of today. Happy Mothers's Day to all!
