Secrets of the Sewing BeeLarge Print - 2017
Orphan Flossy Brown arrives at Trout's garment factory in Bethnal Green amidst the uncertainty of the Second World War. In 1940s London, each cobbled street is strewn with ghosts of soldiers past, all struggling to make ends meet. Dolly Doolaney, darling of the East End, and infamous tea lady, gives her a particularly warm welcome and helps Flossy settle into wartime life. Dolly sets up a sewing circle and the ladies arm themselves with their needles and set about stitching their way to victory. But when the full force of the Blitz rains down on London, the women of the sewing bee are forced to bear unimaginable horrors.
