Megan Avery

Megan has been running a successful sewing business, "M Avery Designs Sewing Studio" in Hoboken, NJ for over 14 years. Now more than ever, with computer and smartphone screens dominating everyday life, it’s essential to remind people what it’s like to make something from scratch. And the sooner we start, the better. Imagine a garment you can touch, hold, and use—one you made yourself!—rather than something that exists only on a hard drive. And the benefits of sewing—developing motor skills, learning responsibility, expressing creativity, and making decisions—foster a healthy sense of independence and appreciation.
