After Mum made Dad leave ICI because he was becoming multicoloured due to the dyes he had to clean out of the boilers, she began to sew as an outworker I remember sitting on the living room floor with a long knitting needle turning out long streamers of cloth which were the strings for aprons. The work would arrive in a big bundle each week and a frenzied time would begin to get it done before collection time. It would be a groan when it arrived, but an even bigger groan if it did not!! no work no wages!
