Sew American: New Mainers help power American Roots, a Portland textile start-up

Thread, bobbin, sewing machine. Besides learning English in their new homeland, they've had to master the lexicon and skills for their work at Portland textile start-up. Dressed in colorful Middle Eastern and African garb, they sew quietly at their machines, occasionally chatting to each other in English, Arabic, French or Portuguese.
