A historical drama of the Singer sewing machine and how it drew many women workers into the garment trade

With music in the tradition of the Great American Songbook, Sewing The Dream tells the story of Annie Moran, a newly arrived Irish immigrant in 1800s NYC and how her life intertwines with that of scandal-ridden inventor Isaac Merritt Singer. Overcoming all odds and challenging accepted conventions of women’s place in society, Annie Moran and Isaac Singer forever change the world for women.
