Bread and Roses E-Pattern from Radical Cross Stitch
As we come marching, marching in the beauty of the day
This pattern has been a labour of love and is a tribute to some of the roots of creative resistance. The Bread and Roses poem and song was penned in 1911 and is most commonly associated with the women of the Lawrence Massachusetts textile strike of 1912.
This strike was a defining moment in Union history as it saw a very large working population of mostly women and immigrant workers organising themselves for better pay and conditions.
The pattern contains more about the story of the Lawrence Strike.
This pattern is of medium level difficulty. The finished piece measures 26cm x 28 cm or 10 x 11 inches.
Designed by Kakariki and stitched by Cross Stitch Ninja.
Electronic pattern includes instructions, inspiration and online support.
