Ever wonder where all those pretty fabrics came from? Well in the 1800’s textile manufacturing came to Lowell Massachusetts. For many years it was a big industry in New England before moving to the South and eventually offshore where most of our fabric is made today.
RFQG member, Sharon Kalinowski will tell us about how the industry started and the struggles of the early female workers as they fought to make a better life during a time when women had little rights and little education.
