Coming Soon - Sewing in Kingston: Home, Factory, and Tradition

"Sewing in Kingston: Home, Factory, and Tradition" is an exhibition and public program series at the Reher Center that explores how Kingstonians from many backgrounds have used sewing as a source of income, an expression of creativity, and a vehicle for cultural transmission. Between May and November 2020, we will amplify the voices and perspectives of individual participants in Kingston’s garment industry past and present, highlighting the role of immigrants and women and tying Kingstonians’ experiences of sewing to broader historical, cultural, and economic trajectories in Kingston and the country at large.
