Sew Great Detroit

Sew Great Detroit

AFG’s Sew Great Detroit is a social enterprise program that provides women employment training, personal growth, and empowerment in a respectful team environment that teaches technical and behavioral skills supported by individual coaching and counseling. Women in the program learn valuable skills and master sewing and knitting skills while producing beautifully designed, high-quality finished products.

The women earn an income for their work through their products’ wholesale and retail sales at marketplace events, hi-end boutiques, contract and special orders, and donations.

Sew Great Detroit is currently accepting new contracted sewing projects. Examples of completed projects are displayed here. If you would like to contract Sew Great Detroit to complete a project, please contact Taylor Gawlik at 313-361-4000 ext. 273 or tgawlik@alternativesforgirls.org.

Sew Great Detroit has helped me channel my energy into sewing and I have learned to slow down and pay attention. It has given me a chance to gain employment skills and inspired me to make clothing for my daughter.
