I'm not sure where this is but I dug up some info on Sewing Projects. According to North Dakota studies, the WPA (Works Projects Administration) created sewing projects where women produced clothing which was distributed to the poor.

Not sure where this photo was shot, but in North Dakota, Evert County hired 800 women. For more history on the WPA Sewing projects, check out Sewer/Sewist
