Where the name Wilson comes from



Sometimes we are called Mr, Mrs Wilson, which is fine, by us. But our last name is Martin. Here is a picture to explain. The business was started by the gentleman on the right, William R. Wilson in 1978. Marshall and Kathy Martin bought the business in 1989. The Lady to the left is Harriet Glasglow that operated Glasgow's Fabric in Chambersburg PA for many years. They live together at Quincy Village, after many years of living in Florida. We were honored by their visit, during our Pfaff truck experience! Bill Wilson was 69 when we bought the sewing machine repair business and we apprenticed under him. Today he is 85 and still driving!
