Opportunity Threads in Morganton, NC is a worker-owned cut and sew company. North Carolina lost over 250,000 textile jobs in the late 90s, but Opportunity Threads has created a place with a great working environment, and also top quality workmanship that is working hard to 'repat-riate' those textile jobs . They have a collaborative model where each worker adds their input to the production process, and there are opportunities after a certain amount of time to buy an ownership stake in the company. It is an inspiring place, and we are excited that we can make some of your quilts at Opportunity Threads.
is a lean manufacturing company in Fall River, Massachusetts. During the industrial revolution, 15 new corporations and 22 new mills were built in Fall River, with over a million spindles, and 1/6 of all cotton production was done in this Massachusetts city that by 1920 grew to a population of a 120,000. But over the course of the 20th Century, the manufacturing jobs dwindled, while companies chased cheap labor and lax regulation. Precision is an amazing example of a company finding a way to work through the challenges of American manufacturing and it is an honor to be working with them.
