Re: What's a Cutter? #usa #general


In 1905 my grandfather came to NYC from Brest-Litovsk. In a letter to my future grandmother who was still in Russia, he wrote, "Now I am learning to be a cutter and designer, that is a "zakroyshtsik" who makes the forms by which to cut, and when I have learned the work well, I will be able to make a nice living because it is very good work and clean work. I work from eight until six o'clock."
