Finding the Threads

Finding the Threads


by Tricia Bowen
Paper back – 54 pages


In October 2005, Feltex Carpets retrenched 165 workers from its Braybrooks site. Some had worked there for 40 years. These are their stories – stories of shared lifetimes, families, food, friendship, injuries, jokes, fights, strikes and struggle and of many languages and cultures forging a community.

Finding the Threads captures the comradeship, the wisdom and the connections of this group of retrenched Feltex workers.
