Good not Goods

The Sewing Rebellion continues it’s commitment to providing equipment and knowledge to make do and mend, while also committing this year to looking back at the history of labor and protest, as a model for being vigilant participants today.

1912: Lawrence Textile Strike AKA Blood and Roses

As we come marching, marching, unnumbered women dead Go crying through our singing their ancient cry for bread. Small art and love and beauty their drudging spirits knew.
Yes, it is bread we fight for – but we fight for roses, too.
by James Oppenheim
