Hello! I'm Mary the founder of On the Road Again. I have been a life-long resident of New England and call Massachusetts home. I own the house I grew up in and my sewing room is located in the same room as my mom's sewing room 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's and I would help her, and we would make crafts out of the remnant fabric.
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 very proud to see that I've continued sewing in her honor.
