Her Life

Her sewing abilities were vestiges of nuns once inhabiting her life. Dutiful, holy sisters had taught her garment making skills for a future family. Though desire and determination had led her to a ship—final destination, a place called Brooklyn. People there loved leisure and craved store bought clothing. So, she sewed in a union shop. Her new financial independence contrasted with earlier sewing instruction filled with teachings of virtuous poverty.
