Cile will always hold a special place in my heart. She had a sewing machine in the Dining Room or their home and with unending patience, taught me how to sew. New Albany had a Singer Sewing Store downtown. They offered sewing lessons but nothing they offered compared to "Mrs. McClure's" help threading and re-threading the sewing machine in the dining room.
