Mrs. W.R. Beason, Pembroke, Robeson County, says that it pays to sew at home, for during the past year she made approximately 50 garments at a saving of $91.50. Some of these garments were made from leftover material or from old clothes at a savings of form one-third to one-half of the cost. Mrs. Beason found both the work and the fact that she was affecting a real saving, fascinating.
