My Cut & Sew Facility

I don't just teach owners of apparel brands, I work with them every day at Detroit Sewn. Over the last seven years, I've worked with every kind of brand at every stage in their journey. I have seen first hand the mistakes they make and the money they waste. I decided to start coaching and creating online courses to help entrepreneurs build their apparel brands with ease. Welcome to Karen's Academy. I want you to get to enjoy the journey as you build your dream!
