Meet The Maker

 

Hello! I'm Mary and the founder of On the Road Again. I have been a life-long resident of New England and call Massachusetts home. I still own the house I grew up in and my shop is located in the same room as my mom's shop was over 30 years ago. My mom worked from home as a seamstress and sewing was a trade she learned back in her home country of South Korea. Living on a busy street provided an opportunity to promote her sewing business. She was a mompreneur (before the term was popular) and she became well-known as the seamstress in town. Growing up my sister and I would helping her in her business, we would make crafts out of the remnants fabric and materials. 

Back then, I did not foresee a future in sewing. Now, I am excited to be a part of the “Makers Movement”, the social movement of artisans. Locally handcrafted goods have come full-circle and I am sure my mom would be so proud to see that I've continued sewing in her honor.
