Sewing Machine


When I finish middle school, my mother taught me how to sew by hand and sew by machine. Like most other Chinese came America, I went to sew clothing in a factory. First day I can’t start because the sewing machine is different from mine and I broke the needle. The factory manager come to show me how to do. At first sewing, I sew slowly. Soon I was sewing faster doing my job, I’m working there about 5 years. Then my daughter was born and I stop working but still have sewing machine.
