Reher Center Map Clue #1

Sewing Machine

Wonderly’s, which celebrated its 100 year anniversary in 2019, provides a vital source of employment for up to seventy sewing machine operators. Today, many of these are immigrant women from Latin America. 

Clyde Wonderly Jr. converted his father’s Wall Street drygoods store into a drapery manufacturing business in 1966. Wonderly’s now specializes in making window treatments and bedspreads for national hotel chains like Hilton and Marriott.
