About Bruce Prince


 
 
BP2

Bruce has lived in Teaneck since 1978 and has been active in his community ever since his schooner docked in Teaneck Bay on that infamous cold and snowy morning in July.
Mr. Prince has been active in a wide range of groups, associations and congregational life.
He served as Congregation Beth Sholom’s President and is co-president of the Jewish Community Council of Greater Teaneck.
Mr. Prince was the founder of The Teaneck General Store. Although the store operated as a gift store and café by day, it was a venue for local musicians, artisans, and all local talent to share their talents with the Teaneck community at night.
The Teaneck General Store had also partnered with Yachad, an Orthodox Union initiative that offers job training for individuals with disabilities.
Embroideries Unlimited, like the Teaneck General Store will continue to avail itself and its facilities to community programs and events.
Bruce is the proud father of four children and six grandchildren and is married to Stacey Lieberman, Executive Creative Director of Spotco, an advertising agency exclusively partnering with Broadway theater.

Schiffli Embroidery


 

William Prince, pictured in this photo, stands by his first Schiffli embroidery machine in Hudson County, NJ in 1921. Like many other newly arrived immigrants, the Schiffli embroidery industry provided a means of independence and a gateway to the American dream. Entire families toiled for long hours to make a living, but as the garment industry flourished in the late 1940’s, 50’s and into the 1980’s, the “needle trade” became an important business that provided a means of support for many area residents. William Prince was later joined by his sons, Norman and Marvin Prince, and Prince Embroidery continues to be a fixture in the textile manufacturing arena for over 90 years.

The textile industry, once thriving and ubiquitous in the “garment center” is no longer the heart of the world’s garment manufacturing. Most operations have moved to developing nations and trim and support industries, like Schiffli embroidery, have followed suit. However, Schiffli embroidery is still produced in Hudson county, and Embroideries Unlimited Inc. is proud to continue the Prince family tradition in this ancient art of embroidery. Please note that Schiffli embroidery is geared towards large quantities for garment or home furnishing applications. This documentary film outlines this unique cottage industry, and can be purchased.
