Schiffli Embroidery

The Schiffli Embroidery Association of Hudson County provided a base for new immigrants.
These immigrants hailed from Switzerland, Germany, Poland, Russia, Latin America and middle eastern countries that formed the Schiffli manufacturing industry for almost 150 years.

This documentary explores the path of these enterprising groups and was commissioned by the Schiffli Embroidery Association. IT was filmed and edited by documentarian, Meri Lobel.
