Thanks for the sewing machine, Mom

When the recommendation came to wear face masks, I got out my mom’s 60-plus-year-old sewing machine that I’ve taken everywhere since I graduated from college. Unlike the modern plastic ones today, this machine is all metal and heavy! But it still takes care of all basic sewing needs beautifully. I watched too many video tutorials before going with a very basic one. (What’s with all that ironing?!) Here is a first effort. If you don’t sew and are looking for something stylish, check out this Inquirer article about how you can support local businesses that are selling masks.
