Sewing Machine Sculpture

Whilst trawling through my Textile Museums favourites, I found this picture of a lady using a sewing machine. It is a metal sculpture. I’ve no idea why I bookmarked it under Textile Museums but I’m glad I found it again!

Anyone know where this is?

    I may be mistaken but I believe that sculpture lives at the Mill in Lowell, Massachusetts.
    I don’t have time to check right now . Mainly wanted to thank you for the image.
    I have seen it somewhere!!!

    If not Lowell, maybe the garment district in Manhattan —

    Thanks, everyone! I haven’t been able to link it up to a definite site yet but I’ll keep you posted if I find out! I think Quiltart is where I originally saw a post about it too, Frances! But unfortunately I just bookmarked it and didn’t make a note of its location or the sculptor….
