People Wear Me Out
FJ: What led you to create your company?
PWMO: Like any good wife, I blame my husband!
He saw how hard and how many hours I was working for other apparel companies for only a small 10% commission, and he said: “you are doing all the work, open your own place.” So I did. People Wear Me Out (PWMO). Glad I kicked around for a while beforehand, though, because it took me ten years to find the right fit for a screen printer and embroiderer. And I always told my graphic artist that someday we would be working together as a team. And we are!
