We all dream of taking the thing we love to do and growing it into a healthy profitable business.  Well our guest today has done just that.  Since she was a little girl sewing was a curiosity, then a pastime, then a college major, and then a career.  Now Margaret is the owner of a sewing and tailoring shop called The Tailored Fit.  In this episode she shares about working on Broadway, how to pick the right sewing machine, and what it takes to build a business from scratch.
