Is there something you’ve always wanted to do — like learning to paint or play the guitar?

During a recent StoryCorps Conversation, Tomiyko Roberts asked her mother, Margaret Rose Edinburgh, to talk about one particular activity that started as child’s play, became a passion and ultimately changed Margaret’s life as her love for sewing led to success as a doll maker.
