“Mom tells me a story while she hems my pants on her Bernina sewing machine.
A self-proclaimed imperfectionist, Mom doesn’t measure fabric or read instructions. After 50 years of sewing, you don’t need to follow anyone’s rules. Through a collage of old family photos, buttons and string, I give texture to Mom’s memories of making clothes on Grandma’s Singer sewing machine.”
