I'm trying to find a short documentary video about people who sew together NASA spacesuits.

I saw it quite some time ago -- at least 20 years, maybe longer. Quite possibly on PBS, maybe the Spokane affiliate. Somewhere between 5 and 30 minutes long.

The subject -- four (I think?) little old ladies who were manually sewing together NASA spacesuits (for, I believe, Space Shuttle usage) was very endearing and I think I'd quite enjoy seeing it again, if possible.

    $\begingroup$ Can confirm this exists. Don't think I have a copy, though. Looking. $\endgroup$ Dec 3 '19 at 20:44

I think this is it. It's part of a fabulous 6 Part series on Apollo called Moon Machines. Other parts covered the computer, the lunar module etc. I think this series is the best documentary I've seen about Apollo.
