A mother in Halifax is sewing with a textile company for the first time, and she’s now earning more than $80,000.
Caroline Hodge’s sewing career started as a hobby in 2009.
Her father was a textile mill worker, and Hodge said she had a passion for sewing.
She loved sewing and sewing clothes for the home.
Hodge says she’s grateful for the opportunities the industry offers, and hopes her story helps educate people about the importance of good sewing.
Hodge is one of more than 200,000 women in Canada who earn less than $25,000 a year, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.
Hogle said she’s happy to be making more than she’s making in the textile industry.
Hogle said the more she makes, the more money she makes.
Hogue said she has no plans to quit the industry anytime soon.
