    My grandmother is on the far left. She was really sweet. I guess everyone says that about their grandmother. She taught me how to sew, of course. When I moved into my own apartment, she said that she didn't think it was appropriate for a single woman to have a dowdy apron, so she sewed me a leopard print apron trimmed with black lace.

    She was also a competitve speed skater when she was younger.

    So, yes, when I think of seamstresses in factories I have very specific people in mind. My grandfather also worked in a factory, a chemical factory.

    Few of us come from wealthy backgrounds if you go back a generation or two. I think a lot of people would just like to forget.
